**1.**

**Celgene Corporation (CELG) -- New Position**

The transaction was as follows:

01/23/2017 Sold 3 CELG Feb2017 $110.00 Puts @ $2.39

Note: The price of CELG was $112.24 when this transaction was executed.

A possible overall performance result (including commissions) for this transaction would be as follows:

100% Cash-Secured Cost Basis: $33,000.00

= $110.00*300

Net Profit:

(a) Options Income: +$706.80

= ($2.39*300 shares) - $10.20 commissions

(b) Dividend Income: +$0.00

(c) Capital Appreciation (If CELG is above $110.00 strike price at Feb2017 expiration): +$0.00

= ($110.00-$110.00)*300 shares

Total Net Profit (If CELG is above $110.00 strike price upon the Feb2017 options expiration): +$706.80

= (+$706.80 +$0.00 +$0.00)

Absolute Return (If CELG is above $110.00 strike price at Feb2017 options expiration): +2.1%

= +$706.80/$33,000.00

Annualized Return: +30.1%

= (+$706.80/$33,000.00)*(365/26 days)

The downside 'breakeven price' at expiration is at $107.61 ($110.00 - $2.39), which is 4.1% below the current market price.

Using the Black-Scholes Options Pricing Model in the Schwab Hypothetical Options Pricing Calculator, the probability of making a profit (if held until the Feb 17th, 2017 options expiration) for this short Puts position is 62.5%. This compares with a probability of profit of 50.2% for a buy-and-hold of Celgene stock over the same time period. Using this probability of profit of 62.5%, the Expected Value annualized ROI of this investment (if held until expiration) is +18.80% (+30.1% * 62.5%).

The 'crossover price' at expiration is $115.03 ($112.64 + $2.39). This is the price above which it would have been more profitable to simply buy-and-hold Celgene stock until February 17th (the Feb2017 options expiration date) rather than holding this short Put options position.
