Roll Outs -- Citigroup Inc. and Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc.

Today, the Covered Calls Advisor decided to roll out two May 18th Covered Calls to the June 15th expiration date.

A Covered Calls position in Citigroup Inc. (ticker C) was rolled out from today's (May 18th, 2018) options expiration at the  $67.50 strike price to another $67.50 strike for next month's June 15th expiration.  A Call options roll out limit order was established at a net credit of $.73, and the transaction was executed within a few minutes as follows:
Buy-to-Close 5 Citigroup May 18th, 2018 Call options @ $2.40
Sell-to-Open 5 Citi June 15, 2018 Call options              @ $3.13
Net Credit Received                                                             $ .73

The Covered Calls in Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc.were rolled down from today's $30.00 strike to June 15th's $29.00 strike price at a net credit of $1.53 ($1.93-$.40).

As detailed below, potential investment results are:
  • Citigroup Inc. -- A +2.7% absolute return in 53 days (which is equivalent to a +18.6% annualized return-on-investment) if Citigroup stock closes above the $67.50 strike price on the June 15th options expiration date.  
  • Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. -- A +1.3% absolute return in 100 days (which is equivalent to a +4.6% annualized return-on-investment) if Sinclair stock closes above the $29.00 strike price on the June 15th options expiration date.
