As we have been buying VTRS using dollar-cost averaging  our average buy price is: $16.48

here is our trade setup:

  • SLD 1 VTRS May 14 23 '21 14 Call Option 0.15 USD

what can happen next:

VTRS is trading below our strike price of $14 at the expiry date (May 14, 2021), in such case, we keep the premium and sell more covered calls to lower our cost basis.
