5/22/20: Portfolio Analysis - Turning a Loser into a Winner

From Theory To Practice

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

In today’s portfolio analysis, we check in on our LUV Strangle and our TGT Ratio Spread. With LUV we see the drawbacks to now having a tighter Short Strangle, in an effort to improve our cost basis, and in TGT we’re glad we went with the Ratio Spread for more downside protection. But the most pleasant surprise today is our XLE position, a trade that we were directionally wrong on from the very beginning, but we are able to take off today for a nice winner. This highlights the power of making sound strategic decisions along the way.
