The stock market reversed course from this morning giving us a chance to roll 3 of our positions with options expiring tomorrow.

 

TRADE ROLL

 

Cardinal Health (CAH):  55.69

 

Cardinal Health stock has held up reasonably well in this up-and-down market. The company doesn’t report earnings until 8/11, so we can roll our calls out two weeks and collect a solid credit.

 

ACTION: Roll the CAH 22 Jul 54 call to the CAH 5 Aug 54 call for a net credit of around 0.50 to 0.55 and a 1% return.

Buy to close the CAH 22 Jul 54 call

Sell to open the CAH 5 Aug 54 call
