P.S. Keep in mind, Nike, etc, are investing a lot in direct-to-consumer sales, which will obviously hurt Foot Locker. Along with online sales hurting these chains in general...

Greetings, Fools,

We've seen some volatility return lately. That may help us in the long run (it should, ultimately -- after first hurting right now). It starts to make options pay better, and will bring about opportunity if it

Hi Fools,

If you are still short August $85 calls expiring this weekend, you still need to close those today -- as long as the stock remains above $85. Right now, you can roll to Oct. $87.50 for a good credit, or to the Jan. 2018 $90 calls

<<<Are you still comfortable with selling $85 puts, instead of the $80 of the original rec?>>

I agree -- with AXP lower now, rolling to Oct. $87.50 is another viable choice. It was the first trade alert I wrote up, in fact, and then as the stock jumped, and was actually above $87.50, I adjusted to Jan. $90.

Vince,

Yup, some similar (yet fewer) issues with a diagonal call. Obviously, we like them a lot here.
