    Went long UCO @ 7.90 today. Long term play.

    Added to CBI today as it looked strong. Then it goes up 4% afterhours. We'll see if it holds tomorrow.

    That why I've been laddering and trying to stay 5 weeks or less on selling calls. I had two lots of VLO go early and just kept the last one. I'm still overweight in VLO, but at least it's reasonable now.

    Wrote calls on second lot of GILD and KMI today.

    Keep telling myself greed kills. LOL

    Gel, I might bite on the XOM. Here was my thought as to why I haven't picked up XOM yet. If the rumor of XOM being interested in VLO is true, XOM will most likely be shorted and let me get a better price. I wasn't worried about it getting away.

    The Buy/Write is most of my trades. Worked out well and I was going out longer with energy stocks like CNP in the past. I've gone 60+ days on CNP in the past and then rolled. It's a little different now with the lower premiums and lower stock prices.

    I think a friend of mine wrote AAPl Jan 16 $150's today for decent money.

    I did end up writing GILD March 105's today for 2.34 on half my lots.

    I have two positions on BNO for April 17th. 22 and 28 strikes.

    AJ,

    Thanks for the input. I was looking at selling puts and also going long at the same time. The rig count continues to go down and I suspect when the refinery strike ends, oil might go up as the result. What do I know. I'll throw a few bucks out in a longer term position on the long side.

    Anyone considering going long oil related stocks for the long term.

    USO, OIL, UCO, SCO, BNO, DTO, DBO, UWTI, USL, DWTI, DNO, SZO, OLO, TWTI, OLEM

    Some of the these have been hit really hard. There's a few short EFT's in there too that have really gone up.

    Well, I don't see anything other then GILD and VLO to write calls against in my inventory of stocks. I'll probably watch to see if GILD MAR 110's come into play. VLO has been a rocket ship for the last month and maybe the rumors of it being bought are true. I would hate to write calls and then a deal being announced. Or maybe I'll just do Buy/Write on it.

    Gel, at that price, I would be fixated on the stock even if I owned one 1 contract. Too rich for me.

    Hardog, you're too kind.

    I've always skipped an occasional word when typing and I can type pretty damn fast. I normally read a post carefully before hitting enter to catch'em. I like what your MD said. Makes me feel better about it.

    My Rhodesian just turned 9 and he's a pretty good boy. Just a little spoiled. LOL. i've considered a GS for the next dog. Probably listens better and not as sensitive as Rhodesian's. Plus it's pretty cold in the winter here.

    Hardog, MOM was one of my wifes haunts with her sister. Thankfully she balanced that out by going to the Goodwill stores and looking for designer jeans. I was amazed at the buys at Goodwill.

    MOM opened in 92 and I still haven't been inside the place. LOL

    Was conspiring with a buddy for the last hour on the phone looking at stocks. Might have a couple of goodies for next week. I'll check out and post later.

    Looks like I'll have 5 assignments and 4 expirations today. Don't see anything I really want to buy yet. Sometimes sitting on cash isn't a bad deal.

    Hi Christine.

    My AAPL Iphone 6 doesn't sent email anymore, only receives and I can't get the Hotspot to work. So I need to get to the Sprint store soon and see what's going on. I wanted to use the Iphone hotspot since it's 4LTE while my truck is only 3G.

    Definitely not changing Comcast until I get the hotspot working and tested to see if it's viable. Since it's a unlimited data plan with Sprint, might be a good way to go. I have a strong dislike for Comcast and also the tacked on additional taxes to fund local channels and paying for additional rent on boxes for each TV.

    BTW, the Iphone doesn't come with a user manual, you need to look at it online.

    Mark, I was considering going cheap with satellite like Dish or Direct. Whatever's the best deal. I usually have Palladia on in the background which is the music concert channel.
    Thanks for the ideas. Giving up some of the TV channels would be like giving up steak and shrimp dinners. I'm just addicted to TV I guess.
