Does the chart below make any sense to you ? (hint it is showing profit picture of all my open positions-in age across the chart–older positions to the left; newer to the right).

12/09/15’s Buys and Sells Alert at 13:05PST

This is a normal TtP-S trade…except that I executed it by BUYING WMB instead of CSP because the dividend was near and I wanted to capture it. Got the div, and unusually, the stock jumped to my PT. Good luck beats magic indicators and technical…

Late report. BTW, if you no longer want to receive these, just reply with “UNSUBSCRIBE” in the subject. I know these have become less reliable as I’ve moved back into the options world. Haven’t updated automated email process to grab all the data. Just let me know if it is no longer useful to you.

WMB Stock because Ex Div date near; WMT CSP closed because high ARoI (good $ in short period; not much remaining ARoI for long hold)

Why would I do this? See clip below…in a nutshell, much of the profit in a short time. 57% of possible profit in 35% of time. Only 15.5% ACashFlow possible in remaining time.

Two CC expirations expected. NUS and STX. Current Positions at end.
