First time for everything...

I had a covered call assigned over the weekend where the stock closed below the strike on Friday. Granted it was only $.06 below the strike, but it still doesn't make much sense (or is it cents) to me.

Re: GE Covered Calls

I'm not a fan of selling covered calls on any stock until:
The stock price is above both the 50 DMA and 200 DMA. I prefer at least 5% above these.
The 50 DMA is above the 200 DMA.

Re: HCN issuing more shares. Again....

My road with HCN has been a bit more "exciting".

Re: Is Libertarianism Dead?

I disagree. I think that the Republicans will be completely incompetent at executing a strategy that will get them in control of both houses and the presidency in 2016.
