Alan answers a question posed by Patrick, who asks:
I bought 100 shares of BHP on 1/11/2022 for $63.08 and sold the 2/18/2022 $65.00 call for $1.46. The stock price is up to $67.99 on 1/19/2022 and the cost-to-close the $65.00 call is $4.40. Given the amount of time left, is it worth buying back the option to capture the price appreciation and restructure the trade at a higher OTM strike? Any thoughts are most welcome.
