Well, you're gonna have to give others a lot more credit than me, Vince. I only opined positively after seeing that massive buyback authorization, which they wasted no time in using. That's the kind of bold move that I like.

Congrats on the trade, though! It's fun and really satisfying to let the put buyer pay you to own the call option (or part of one). But it's probably the right move to cash out once you got your stock move, even if there's potentially more upside. It's way too easy to get burned waiting on a home run when you could have settled for a triple and still been happy. :-)
