As mentioned last week, the aborted test flight by Virgin Galactic caused the biggest headache for me. SPCE shares dropped most of the week. I still like the stock long term, so I continued to buy shares but the value of my call contracts did not survive. At least I had SONO to salvage the week.

12/14:

Buy: SPCE Apr 16 $30 Call @ $5.50
Buy: SPCE Dec 18 $28 Call @ $1.35
Buy: FDX Dec 18 $300 Call @ $7.50

The theme of me buying more SPCE started Monday with call options, although I pulled the trigger too soon. I should have waited another day to see where the price stabilized. I bought the FDX calls to back my bet from last week’s 2 Bulls podcast.

12/15:

Sold: NIO @ $41.93
Sold: EMR @ 81.50
Buy: SPCE @ $26.40
Buy: SPCE @ $26.00

I started running out of funds while I was trying to scoop up more shares of SPCE. I had to sell out of NIO and EMR to fund these purchases and so I could exercise my remaining options in BBBY and SONO later in the week.

Sold: SONO Dec 18 $17.5 Call @ $4.00
Sold: SONO Dec 18 $17.5 Call @ $5.00

I sold 60% of my SONO calls at $4.00 and less than an hour later, the stock started running again. I sold of another 20% at $5.00 and held the rest to exercise at the end of the week. I had to take a break for a bit after this to clear my head, as one can imagine.

12/16:

No Trades

12/17:

No Trades

12/18:

Exercised: BBBY Dec 18 Call @ $15.00
Exercised: SONO Dec 18 Call @ $17.50

I exercised both of these options as the bid price was below what the stock was actually trading at. This seems to be a common occurrence when trading options. I decided to hold them through the weekend as I was expecting a stimulus deal to get negotiated and figured these stocks should benefit from that.

Sold: FDX Dec 18 $300 Call @ $0.21

Ouch… Better than nothing I guess.

Expired: SPCE Dec 18 $28 Call
Expired: AMC Dec 18 $3.5 Call

Like these… Buying more of the SPCE calls is what turned my week negative overall. Maybe next week I’ll learn my lesson.
