    Sold entire position @ 5.3

    I'm tempted. I'm just not sure how much higher this will jump up if the NGP deal goes through. But I'll hold off, because I think there's another $2 in here, and there are vanishingly few alternatives. I like XTEX in comparison, but it's now $2 ahead, and that's after I get clobbered with taxes. I don't like it, but I'm standing pat.

    • I sold 1/4 of my position at 4.85 and replaced with a $2.50/$5.00 bull call spread (Jan).

      I'm trying to wait for $6 to sell some more.

      I've got to admit I'd like to take my profits and stick them somewhere with a bit less downside (EROC didn't have what I considered as much downside when I was buying, but I could see some significant short term downside here if things play out poorly), but I don't want to sell into a bidding war (NGP/Blackstone).

    • Hey CC, when did you buy ATPG? I thought you only bought dividend stocks.

      • Yeah, but I'm not stupid! I saw that SA article about what's in the pipeline and read everything on the company, it seems to be an easy two bagger within a year, maybe more. I'm already up 25% or so.

        I define stuff like that as "trading", even if I hold it for awhile, and I treat the after-tax gain as spendable retirement income. So from a cash flow standpoint it works out okay for me, assuming I'm right.

        I see you noticed the new avatar. Got "999'd" again by Yahee, just a posting fool.
