    I chose the Jan 2017 calls to sell because I wanted the lower risk and I really want to make it hurt to take my shares. Imagine if these shares don't get taken from me until Jan 2017? I will have collected 2.50 in distributions and 4.25 in price appreciation. 2 yr yield of 77%. If the price goes down to 9.00 I will probably buy the calls back. I agree on the low for the stock and I also agree that with the Distribution cut to the bone there should be very little downside left. Risk reward thing. Lets hope we all win.

    Buy the stock at 11.25, write the 13 Jan2017 covered call for 2.50 your net cash outlay is 8.75 - collect 1.25 (or more) per year or 14.28% Yield.
    If LNCO recovers and does well you might lose your shares.... what a bummer. You would walk away with $4.25 or a 48.5% profit plus any distributions collected up to that point.
    if LNCO suffers more you will keep your shares with a net cost basis of 8.75 and continue to yield 14.25% or whatever the distribution amount is.
    Seems like a lower risk way to play this opportunity. GLTA
