I have 300 shares of Dreamworks Animation (DWA)that was acquired in April of 2012 for $17.22 per share.

On March 31, 2016 I initiated some covered calls (SOLD TO OPEN 3 CONTRACTS OF OPTION DWA JUN 17 2016 27.00 C AT $1.30). I realized that the stock might be called away and my thinking was to get some cash for other trading, so I am not upset to sell at this price, although I wouldn't mind holding on to the stock since the stock is rising faster than I expected.

Right now (4-19-2016) DWA has gone to about $27.50 and seems to be rising on the current rally.

I am surprised the options have not been exercised yet, but TMF Options states that often options expire unexercised.

I wonder if I should be considering buying the option back and writing a new covered call. Opinions, please?

BTW, I am new to options and this would be the first time I have ever rolled an option.
