Up 4% as I write. Closings to be announced in a day or two. Sorely tempted to buy October $50 puts and sell $50 calls (-!.45, +$1.55).

25% of my IRA now… 18% of total equities.

No, I can’t really do the options. Calls are volume 4, open interest 146; Puts volume 0, open interest 0. Pretty thin. Well, that’s an excuse to do nothing.
