Understanding Taking Profits Early In Apple Stock – An Investor Shows How – Dec 22 2015

Just two days ago I was writing about how to roll-down Apple Stock credit put spreads profitably. Today an investor tweeted me his results on his trade in Apple Stock.

Back on Dec 18, Patrick sold the Dec 31 expiry $100 put strike for 71 cents. Today he closed that position for 19 cents. This is a gain of 52 cents or 0.52% in 3 trading days. This is an annual return of 63%.

Patrick tweeted his chart today showing his entry point and exit. He is showing just how successful a do-it-yourself investor can be when they learn a strategy and follow a trade to its conclusion. He is also demonstrating that taking profits early is essential in today’s market environment.

This year Apple Stock has been just amazing for returns and investors such as Patrick have emailed or tweeted every day. Many investors this year have surpassed my returns especially in individual stocks.

Investor Tweet

In his tweet Patrick indicated: “Nothing like a good “Teddi setup” as I like to call them. Thanks for the great year @BeFullyInformed.”
