Today I sold 5 January 60's for $6.00 and 20 April 70's for $4.00 = $11,000 cash in my account Average sale price of the 2500 shares = $72.40.
Yesterday is I sold 5 January 65's for $3.10, Previously back in July I had sold 20 January 60's for $4.00.
Yesterday I was upside down on the 60's I sold at $4.00 and tonight i'm up (getting unusually volatile). When I sold them, I was happy to net the 64.00 and still am. No greed as I may my decision and hold that opinion.
With this earnings report I might be upside down tomorrow, but I think the market needs a rest.
Tomorrow should be a good time to sell some calls if BRKS climbs on it's report.
I could well be premature, but I've had a big multibagger for year with some big swings.
Hoping to get some seed money out and play the swings on this great stock.
Have to admit that management has been a net seller of options this year and they know better than I how there the future will be.
After a 6 bagger, I'm getting tired of holding my complete accumulation. Hoping to sell 16 % and have my initial investment in the bank (not counting options premium), which has now equaled a year of dividends and intend to repeat that on pops., as I hold the remaining core.
On July 7th I had previously sold 15 60's for September @ $1.07 and 15 60's for October@ $1.50. Those have expired to 00.00.
To be honest I have a bad feeling I shouldn't sell anything, but if price had a dip - I'd only critique myself as having a bad case of blinded greed.
You know what they say about hogs! <smile>
Believe me , I've had many a soul searching moment of an itchy sell finger over the years.
I do think that MANAGEMENT IS THE BEST I'VE EVER KNOWN. They will sell anything if it does not fit their business model, and then spend millions creating a destructive enabling innovative business , based on their proven expertise. That's pretty darn sharp!
Past high is 90 ish in 2000, so they've been on the fame train before and have tempered their greed as well.
