$87 profit in JNJ

Happy weekend!


Before I start, just wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone who signed up for my options course. It sold out in 18 hours, which is the fastest it's sold out ever. 


I'm sorry I couldn't offer a seat to everyone, but the good news is the next run should be in January 2025 and I'll announce the dates & times in this newsletter when they're ready, so look out for that. 


This week:

  1. $87 profit in Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)


$87 profit in JNJ

Some time ago I sold a $140 cash-secured put in JNJ expiring May 17 and received $132 in premium.

Just 4 trading days later, JNJ rallied and I could buy back the same position for just $45, which resulted in a realized profit of $87 or 66% of max profit.

This is my 3rd winning trade in JNJ so far in 2024, with $388 realized profit to date.

My longer term goal is to be able to pick up another 100 shares of JNJ at a discount - so whenever that happens, this $388 will help with lowering my eventual cost basis.

As always, you can get updates for all my trades within my public portfolio by joining my Bread Crumb subscription.

It's $49/month so this one winning trade in JNJ would have covered all costs (and more) for the month.


Closing thoughts & useful links

We're in a bit of no man's land at the moment - the market is grinding higher but without any real conviction in my opinion.

I've been sitting on a lot of capital and not opening new positions because I'm waiting for the best opportunities before taking that step - just gotta be patient.

Have a good weekend!
