A little more about how I pick my covered calls.

Recently TLRA showed up on Saul's board. A cursory review was enough to include it in my covered call list: I was familiar with the market from my TTD days, chart looked OK, no red flags.

This weekend TLRA was one of the stocks picked by the Call Selector along with DOCU and ZS. On Friday my ZS call expired worthless. Since ZS is already in the portfolio it has a certain preference. One of my rules is to sell calls on stocks that are going up (TA - momentum), if my call is exercised I'll do really well earning both the premium and the capital gain from the stock. So, check it out:

TLRA is the clear winner!

How about some serious research? Saul's is the go-to board these days and it's free. There I found

Subject: TLRA

That's as good a discussion as you'll find at TMF!

Why not MDB or OKTA? I'm glad you asked! I already have calls on them.
