I’m really glad I have them right now but what do I do with them?
Let’s say Dec 19 goes above my $4 strike price by $0.20. Do I exercise them or do I sell them? If they still have time value on them (they don’t have much since they are July short dated) then selling them may be more profitable than exercising them?
By the time it gets close to expiration I suppose they won’t have any more value than the profit one would take by buying them and exercising them.
I don’t know. Just never been in a position to consider this before.
In a way, I guess if I sold the calls today it would be like being hedged at $4.10 Dec 19 and $4.20 Dec 20.
I imagine I’ll just hold on to them until they expire worthless (unless it's really clear I need to exercise them) but I figured I’d ask for advice.
