I jumped in in mid November at 24, then sold Dec 25 calls for a total of 311. So, the drop hasn't killed me, and if it I think it'll hang around 18, I'll just keep it and keep selling calls. It's the way I'm leaning now.

I am afraid the selling has just begun though. It fell this hard on an up day. A down day could kill this thing, or institutions that may be required to sell could cause further problems.

I was prepared for a dividend cut, but not a complete elimination of dividends. Alas live and learn. I probably, er definitely, got wowed by the call payouts and didn't do all my due diligence (see if I ever rely on CAPSshot again :p )

I'm off to not worry about this until tomorrow. Thanks for the input everyone.
