Rolled Forward and down UWMC Covered Call +0.43% potential income return in 115 days
On January 18, 2022, I rolled forward and down 1 covered call on UWMC stock, a position I originally established at the start of October 2021 by investing $682, see: Established New Covered Call on UWMC; Potential Income return 3.9% in 7 days
I rolled down because the stock has dropped significantly under my current strike price. Looking to protect me in case of a further downturn. Might be troubled is stock will quickly rebounce.

here is the trade setup:
SLD 1 UWMC JAN 28 '22 6 Call Option 0.10 USD
here I sold next Friday’s (January 28, 2022) expiry call option receiving $10 (before commissions)
What happens next?
On the expiry date, January 28, 2022, UWMC is trading under $6 per share - options expire worthlessly and I keep premium - if UWMC trades above $6 on the expiry date, my 100 shares will get called away and I realize my max profit $11 or potential income return 0.43% yield in 115 days.
Break-even price: $6.82-$0.85= $5.97
I prefer selling options on stable dividend stocks, in that manner collecting both dividend and option premium. Let’s hope - UWMC is stable enough.
