I sold 1 CHK July 21 ’12 $16 Put for $1.13. If these 100 shares get assigned I’ll own 100 shares of CHK for $14.87 / share before commissions. This would give me an effective yield on cost of 2.35%. Otherwise I’ll collect $113 for waiting.
This is more of a value/speculation play than a DG investment. I will likely put these shares in another portfolio if assigned.
