Exited BA and May strike 34 calls.

On April 20 2009, I posted the following:

"Bought 2000 shares at 36.57, and wrote 20 May strike 34 calls at 3.40/contract.  This gives me an intrinsic time value of .83/contract and a downside protection on the shares to 34!  At 34, I'll be glad to be a proud holder, during which i will dollar-cost-average."

Today, I sold the shares at 37.86, and covered the calls at 4.40, for a gain of .30/contract
