Scholarly view of writing covered calls and of Novavax (NVAX), part 1

Recently, writing covered calls on (NVAX), our fearless, intrepid investor lost some $70,000.00 in her “fun” portfolio! How much fun can that be?

She had done well writing covered calls on NVAX every Monday, most of the time with the strike price just out-of-the-money, expiry date Friday of the same week. Morningstar now rates NVAX as undervalued at an 18% discount.

Remember that the risk of writing covered calls entirely comes from the risk connected to the underlying security.

Given the undervaluation, should she:

a.) continue with the covered call writing strategy or

b.) buy more NVAX and wait for the market to make up for the lost ground or

c.) do both?
