The call options assume purchasing split-adjusted calls with 124 strike and 1/15/21 expiry for 2019, and rebalancing to split-adjusted calls with 170 strike on 1/21/22 for 2020 according to the aforementioned ratios. The calls represent strike prices that have the potential to outperform if the stock price moves drastically. The results are hypothetical results and are NOT an indicator of future results and do NOT represent returns that any investor actually attained.
