Since shares of HDP have about doubled since last winter, and options are trading at a high premium, and with the news of HDP being awarded the 2020 census contract...I requested that a board be started.
I was a shareholder when I made the request, and needed to decide on taking profits now, holding, or writing call options against my shares...or some combination of the three.

But then, I read an article or two about the recent appointment of the head of the US Census Bureau.

Since my BF Goodrich rubber boots only come up to mid-calf, and I don't own hip waders anymore...and since I've got no idea just how deep the bull crap is going to go..I exited this position, stage left (anyone remember Snagglepuss?), and I'll just watch from afar.
