My .02, have you looked at selling some $5 calls. With the price at/above $5 you might get a nice amount that would cover you cost. If it gets exercised at least you get your money back and if not(meaning it closes below $5 on expiration date)then you can sell more calls. Right now, the Nov $5 calls are selling for .45 ($45.00/contract before comm.)that could significantly reduce your cost.
