Hi russcaxp,

It's not a wonderful price -- but I think it's a fair price at about 24x EPS estimated for this year. We're starting fairly small at 2.5%, so like VRSK and FDS (and some others), we'll likely buy more if we get

Hi Trevor,

Sorry to not write sooner -- I can't always find a way to spend time on the boards each day, or even for a stretch sometimes. But nonetheless, fellow members had good advice.

Indeed, writing puts in an IRA has few to

Hi Fools,

Indeed, the price did move... the stock gained a decent bit of ground all the sudden today (rising market). But the trade still remains viable.

(Thanks, Scott!)

Yup, looking good, either way.

I have a roll report written (to March 23, $105s); we'll issue if (and once) that appears reasonable/the best thing to do for members. Right now, the time value to buy our $105

Our Everlasting Options will be issued next week now, Friday the 23rd. Apologies

Thanks, Toby!

SWKS to $104.60 now, and still nearly $1 in time value on Friday's $105 puts...

Hi FoolishPVY,
