All my planning from last night came to naught today when SunPower's stock (NASDAQ:SPWR) gapped down at the opening bell and continued to slide all day and closed at the low of the day @ $7.63. I never got a chance to sell my SPWR March 16, 2013 CALLS, Strike Price $6.00 as I had planned and outlined in my blog post last night...
However, I was, as planned, able to use some of the available cash to add to the 108 CALL contracts Sprint (NYSE:S) May 18th, 2013 CALLS, Strike price $6.00 currently held in the account:
Purchased: 55 CALL contracts of Sprint's May 18. 2013, Strike Price $6.00 @ 22¢
Total Cost: 5,500 x $0.22 = $1,210 + $52 (brokerage commissions) = $1,262
Sprint (S) May 18, 2013 CALLS, $6.00 Strike Price: 163 Contracts
SunPower (SPWR) March 16, 2013 CALLS, $6.00 Strike Price: 80 Contracts
MEMC Electronic Materials (WFR) April 20, 2013 CALLS, $3.50 Strike Price: 61 Contracts
Cash Balance in the Account: $2,077 - $1,262 = $815.00
P.S. I have included Ameritrade's real time image of the Option table with the appropriate purchase price highlighted in magenta:
