I also made back over $1,500 by rolling long options out a year - with RSI being the indispensable timing tool that allowed me to do that. Most of my covered call rollouts are good but this one is an exception as the stock got away from me on the upside and isn't giving a lot back. That's fine - it's unrealistic to think that every last rollout is going to be a howling success.
Yes - I do owe the kitty $7,230 - it's no laughing matter to me when the stock gets away on the upside - it does cost some bucks to extricate myself so that I can take full advantage of future stock price gains.
Just for the record, so many of the mindless detractors here said that the stock getting away on the upside was the one thing that I did NOT have to worry about with a dog like Pfizer.
