i know its not related to aapl, but i love this goofy board, but i sold weekly AA (alcoa) calls and stock closed right on the spot, and i use scottrade, i know generally it need to be .01 or higher to get called away, but what r the chances ill keep it this monday? thanks.
unless a particular person is smart enough to attack the cost basis into the purchase of his AA and he still wants the shares at the strike price then you will unlikely be assigned... but if they were very smart and knew knew about attaching and raising the cost basis of the stock on purchase then they would assign you... we've rarely found them smart enough to know to assign someone
i think pretty good, and I think the holder has to exercise the calls if it right on the strike. Then again, you are talking about Aloca, not like it will move much and even if it does, it will eventually come back down anyway. I wouldn't lose sleep over Alcoa moving much.
