The $10KP

We had a lot of luck on this this week so let’s not blow it!

We need to keep tight stops.  On the spreads, this means pay attention to the profits on your spreads and don’t get out if it starts declining.  We could shut this thing down right now at $23,829 and call it a good quarter so it would be insane to take chances, especially if this represents a significant investment for you.

Obviously we need to watch LVS and TSO closely as we have a lot tied up in each and watch FNF around the Fed because if we don’t get a pop today, that may be it for that position!  It would be nice if UTHR works (currently down $1,165 on paper) but if get through LVS earnings within $5 of my $135 target, we should be in very good shape at the volatility crush destroys our caller.  Rather than buy out our $135 caller ahead of earnings, let’s roll our Dec $140s back to Jan $140s for $2.30.
