Clorox Stock (CLX Stock) Investment Strategy

I have earned double-digit annual returns from put selling and the few Clorox Stock trades I have done using primarily the Bollinger Bands Strategy Trade. To learn more about that strategy consider these links: Understand The Bollinger Bands Strategy Trade – Strategy Paper details out the strategy View All Bollinger Bands Strategy Trades The investment strategy for Clorox Stock is once again Put Selling at what I believe is fair value and if assigned shares, collect the dividend while selling covered calls to be exercised out of the stock. I am not interested in holding Clorox Stock for more than a few months at best so I will probably sell in the money covered calls if assigned shares of Clorox Stock.

Understanding and Profiting from Year-End Window Dressing

    Hi Teddi,

    Unless I’m missing something, I think there is an error in the Capital in Use calculation of your 7-Jan-13 LEAP transaction.  ($70 * 500) + $10 = $35,010.00, not $21,010 as shown.

    BTW, having all of your trades year after year is very instructive and highly appreciated!

    Thanks for spotting that and keeping me on my toes! I have it fixed now.

    Every year I pick certain stocks and sell leap puts at strikes I would own them at. Normally I close early depending on the profit I have made and what is left in the put premium. At $70 on Clorox I would own it and the put premium was very good at the time of selling it.
