I still remember back in 2009 when C had peaked in the low 5s (pre-split). I was staying in Atlantic City at the time. I ended up selling my long position. However, I did continue to do a lot of option selling to collect the premium. I finally stopped doing this after the reverse split. The stock is still trading in the same price range for the past 5 years. It looks like it will have to break out of this range before the buyers return.
