Today: Closed 3 positions. YUM Brands, Starbucks, and Interactive Brokers.
Here's the brick:
CLOSED: IBRK - Interactive Brokers
1 contract Jan $27 Puts (naked puts)
Position open:20-novPosition closed: 5-dec
Position open: 15 days
Maximum Premium : $89.61
Maximum loss: $2610.39 (2700-89.61) (if the stock went to ZERO)
Closed @ 49% capture ($44.27)
Yield on risked capital: 1.7%
Representing an annualized yield of 40%
Full disclosure: this is my brokerage: I highly doubt they would be ZERO by January... Entirely unlikely. Thus the max loss is theoretical only. And yes, for those of you who see that "Comm" item of $0.34, that's how much my commission was to trade this. Sure beats EVERY OTHER brokerage in Canada. This move would have cost me $11.24 ($9.99+1.25) at my old brokerage.

Huge positives for Starbucks. Time to take my money, and buy a coffee.

Yum has recovered from it's "floor chicken" fiasco. It's got it's mojo back, so it's time for me to exit my position and re-deploy into something else.
Stay HUNGRY my friends.
