Hi Fools,

So, I'm wondering whether it makes sense for me to roll my covered call option out to September 2020 for about the same price (slight loss) to execute a "Buy to Cover"? On the advise of TMF I purchased ETSY early April 2020. Soon thereafter ETSY rose nicely and I sold a covered call contract for the $65 Strike that Expires 6/19/20. ETSY is now trading around $84 per share and my shares look to be assigned for $65/share this Friday unless I "Buy to Cover". Today the Covered Calls for September 2020 $70's are about same price (0.30 less) as the cost for me to close my $65.00 position?

Btw, I've followed Jim Mueller's suggestion executing this "roll out" tactic with ZOOM. Thanks for your feedback.
