Thanks to everyone for the feedback! I am a little happier with the cash-covered puts of late - I will likely own some ATVI come Saturday after next. But with the VIX being so low these days, it doesn't seem like there's much premium to be had.

I have been looking for an 8% annualized return for calls 2-3 months out. And all of my long positions are keepers, so having them called away is a poor outcome.

I think I wold summarize the opinions here as, if there is a good time to be selling covered calls, now is not it.
