    • Hey upsoars- good stuff about the new target. All this data about the new $98 number, the FDX share price and response to their report, the good air freight numbers that came in today, the ever-expanding use of online shipping services, our recently completed/announced acquisitions and other news has moved our shares to near all-time highs. Of course, for every good thing there is also a downside for some. In my case, my covered call options are starting to put me in a bind. It was an excellent source of income when prices were stable but the steadily increasing share price has made it less than a profitable endeavor lately. So, I decided to sell some shares today to cover the cost of closing out some call options, pay down some of my hypo debt and set aside some $$ for the capital gains tax burden. I'm not complaining but for those with a significant number of shares playing the covered call game, these are complicated times.
