"I'm not only a fan of Apple products, I have stock in the company. I think Steve Jobs has started one of the greatest corporations in the world."
After closing out the put position, I immediately went long the stock. I did this because Apple is going X-dividend on Thursday. This will allow me to pick up the $3.05 quarterly dividend and then attempt to sell calls off the position next week.
I did this trade because I felt that the Apple Chart was telling me that the stock was ready to move significantly upward. I had also already gotten enough out of the put option to close it with a decent profit. It also gives me a chance to collect the dividend.
We'll find out in a few days if I was right or wrong. Either way, I have no one to blame except myself. And that's the way I like it.
