This article got me to wondering if CLB is worth a put write, with the idea to actually get shares.

http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2015/02/21/3-great-ene...

Currently, the June 105 Put, assuming you could split the bid / ask is yielding 6.5% while the 100 strike is at 5.1%.

I mention this because if seems like CLB was a favorite of ??? Jim maybe? Of course, I may be totally wrong on that. And, the current oil "crisis" has almost cut CLB's price in half. Certainly, they are probably in for tough times over the short term but I'm of the opinion that eventually we'll be paying much more for "oil" than we are now.

who's always looking to buy when everyone else is selling.

P.S. who already has a full allocation of NOV between stock and options.
