This week: $61 profit in Abbvie (ABBV)
$61 profit in ABBV
On Oct 27, ABBV reported earnings and the market didn't seem to like what they had to say, and the stock dipped.
I took the opportunity to sell a $125 cash-secured put expiring on Dec 15 for $80.
The trade quickly hit my 50% target zone, but I felt the position had more room to run, and updated my private community accordingly.
2 weeks later, I paid $19 to close the trade, resulting in a realised profit of $61 or 76% of max profit.
This makes it 6 wins in 6 trades for ABBV - for a total realised profit of $549 in 2023.
Although I'm usually pretty consistent with closing trades at 50% profit, there are times when the market seems like it wants to run a little, and I'm happy to let it.
Worst case, the position turns around and I close it right back for 50% profit anyway - no biggie.
My last ABBV trade in this portfolio was back in July, with $42 in realised profit.
