Darryl, UPST is a good covered call pick. It has weekly options while most of my current covered call stocks only have monthly.

Now back to the grind stone. Really getting tired of this.... almost time to get off of this ride for good.

Which "ride" are you referring to? The Captain's ARK? Covered calls? ARK Invest? Like I said earlier, The Captain's ARK has been a bit of a disappointment for me and if that's the ride you refer to I can't blame you. I've returned to covered calls and the challenge is finding good candidates. I find that the best tend to be flat or rising slowly. The bane of covered calls is capital loss. With that in mind I'm paying more attention to stock charts.

VUZI (an ARK pick) is a good example, I bought it too early so I have a capital loss but now it looks like it has support so I added some more

This requires looking at charts as I don't have this selection criteria in the Covered Call Selector. A 10 day EMA might do it -- sell covered calls when positive. It turned positive for VUZI yesterday.
