Sold 1 Call Option on PFE – 0.08% potential income return in 4 days

On October 18, 2021, I sold 1 call option on PFE stock with a strike price of $43 and expiry this Friday. I don't have actually 100 shares to deliver if challenged (I have some 14). In case of danger, I will roll up and forward this call option.

Pfizer Inc. is an American multinational pharmaceutical and biotechnology corporation headquartered on 42nd Street in Manhattan, New York City. The company was established in 1849 in New York by two German immigrants, Charles Pfizer and his cousin Charles F. Erhart

This trade comes as the #17 in the month of October, according to my trading plan for this month, the premium generated from this trade makes me about 0.6% of my $600 monthly goal.  While in total I have reached already 44.9% so far. Awesome!

here is the trade setup:

  • SLD 1 PFE OCT 22 '21 43 Call Option 0.06 USD

What happens next?

On the expiry date, October 22, 2021, PFE is trading under $43 per share -  options expire worthlessly and I keep premium - if PFE trades above $43 I'm troubled as I need to deliver shares I don’t have, to avoid such scenario I will roll up strike prices

Break-even price: $43+$0.03= $43.03
