Russian Market has fallen 2.2% already tonight

I took my opportunity to sell a put for February 11 today. The lowest strike price on offer to me was $26, so I took that and availed of a premium of $1.9.

How do the figures stack up on this one?

$1.9/ $(26-1.9) = 7.8% in six months

If I annualise this figure, it represents 15.7% in twelve months hypothetically.

Of course, the Russian market may fall and I may have to take on that stock. However, my effective cost is $24.10 and the last time RSX visited this price was around September of last year.
