You sure have to wonder about my company picking ability when so many
investors love the stock better when the boss quits!
All my puts are out of the money now (I've had 17,18,19 & 20 lately).
Hope this isn't the start of a big rally. As a put writer I love a firm
that keeps worrying people year in and year out while the stock goes nowhere.

USG was my fave for that for a long time, but unfortunately it has rallied.
I loved it at $8-10, even $14-15, but I'm a whole lot less keen at $30.
Glad to be out.

Jim
