What To Do With AAPL?

We initiated a position in an AAPL covered call on Dec 5 when the stock was at $551.57. Since then we have sold weekly calls against it and now have an adjusted cost basis of $468.52.

At the moment we are keeping the stock uncovered until the company announces something relative to their large cash position. We expect an increase in the dividend at a minimum, and potentially other actions as well, any one of which could cause the stock to rise. You can keep up with our AAPL trade in the latest blog posting Weekly Apple (AAPL) Trade March 11

Need More Women

Recently Investopedia published an article on the Best Financial Careers For Women, which outlines four finance careers and women who are using them to achieve their goals.

One of Born To Sell's subscribers, Laurie Itkin, was profiled. She is a money manager and investment advisor who runs an investment coaching business, The Options Lady. Laurie is a fan of Born To Sell and the covered call strategy, and we encourage anyone looking for some coaching to seek her advice.
