Last week I sold 30 contracts in my long term account (IRA) for the weekly options with Ford, the 13 strike. I fully expected the assignment this weekend! The contracts were expired!!! I usually only sell short puts on stock I do not mind owning in my long term account, but since the options at the close on Friday were worth 24 cts. I knew or at least I thought I knew that I would have 3000 shares placed in my account. Well, I will take the gain, but I am totally shocked. However I do see that Ford likely will trade above 13 this a.m. Question I have, has anyone not been assigned a position being 24 cts in the money? BTW, I have had other Ford stock assigned to me this past year, so I do trade Ford on a regular basis. On a side note, some may think this is a BS post, as I would have doubts too, reading the content!!! I assure you, this did happen!
