hi all, I have a potential problem with my synthetic long on a IBM $145 expiring Jan.2021. I wrote a $125 exp.2/15/19 short call and with the recent run-up after earnings I am getting a little nervous and was wondering if anyone could lay out my options either before someone exercisers this on me or if I roll it out and possibly up even if I have to pay a little to do so. I am also worried about dividend poaching coming into play in Feb. Right now my TV is around 1.99,but moving around as pricing changes.

This is basically an income play for me that I was running in Options.
Any help is appreciated,
Thanks,Pete
