Hi rwz1,

Okay... no problem. I hope you're well!

To catch-up: We have long since sold our SH shares, and closed (bought to cover, or bought to close) our SPY short. If you want to mirror us there, you will close both these positions.

That said, we closed those earlier this year (the first alert to do so went out in January; I think our first alert of the year; we finally covered via covered puts this summer). The market is up a lot since January. Thpse are hedges you have that may be more useful these days. Still, if you have a long-term outlook, I would close them to match us.

DGS we still own and we are adding about 1% to it by writing Dec. $46 puts. Please see our Sept. 11 trade alert under the Alerts tab.

This all begs a question, though: How well are you matching us elsewhere? Do you have cash, as we do? Do you own most of our "buy" stocks?

Just asking for context. I hope so, given the hedges you've had...

Best wishes, and welcome back!
