$SLW Another Year, Another Covered Call, Plus a 3-Year Chart

In July 2011 I wrote an in-the-money call against [[SLW]] and it expired worthless last Friday. Hooray for me.

Time to write another one. Based on the chart below, I’m thinking of writing one that’s, again, in the money and maybe a year or two out.

And that kinda sucks ’cause I still have some free-floating, unprotected stock. Oh well.

Trying out a new chart style, monochrome. Red lines are the negatives, green – obviously – the positives.

And here’s a page from a 1934 catalog. I’m calling it “The Joys of Inflation, or See It and Weep”.
