      • Agree, the fundamentals are improving all the time. As a long term investor, I am holding strong.
        I am not even selling covered calls.

        Of course there will be pullbacks or retraces with the general market, sector and sub sector. Option expiration also has short term impact on price frequently. See them as buying opportunities, under normal trading parameters. If one is a day trader, well that is a different objective.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy
