Options Trade - NKE - Paper Trading

Just thinking aloud and experimenting on a strategy on a FA+TA analysis. This is purely a paper money exercise.

Current Stock: $111.42
RSI: not align yet
STO: : not align yet
MACD: : not align yet
Support: $107 (50D-EMA)

STO: Aug15 $110 PUT @1.40?
BTO: Aug15 $109 PUT @1.08?

Can't  find a good strike price to get a decent risk/reward entry if based on support line. Should I go with the above strike price of 110/109 to have ~40% ROI?

Added on 31Aug: With the wild swing of the market sentiment, many stock had dropped and raised irrationally. Even NKE was not spared of the drop. This experiment trade exit with 100% as the options of the spread was expired worthless. NKE didn't drop as much as the broader market.

Apple Reports Outstanding Q3 FY2015 Results

  • Apple EPS of $1.85 beats by $0.04
  • Revenue of $49.61B beats by $300M
  • Declares devidend $0.52 per share
Not a fantastic result as compare to previous quarter, revenue +32.5% y-o-y is good enough for me. Shares price plunge -7.5% after-market. Will it stay in the same price when market open? Irrational market behavior will allows us to take advantage of the dips.

This month, I received dividends from 6 holdings. They were Ascendas HT, OUE HT, AIMS AMP CAP REIT, LippoMall REIT, OCBC, & COH. The total amount collected was $360.38. This value gives me y-o-y of ~6% increase of dividend income.

The forwards dividend now:-
ADI = S$2820.06. My goal for ADI is S$5000 for this year. There was a slight increased as compared to previous month due to the currency exchange rate. I will continue to add new or increase current holdings when opportunity arises.
DDI = S$7.73

I posted what is ADI/DDI here and I had updated the Jun income in the Dividend Income & Options Income.
