I think you meant NYB. Ive had it for 12 years. For me it's a mistake to sell calls in NYCB. I just hold it, collect the div and add more when it's low. I get the covered calls strategy but Now youre in a position where I assume youre down almost a buck and probably wont buy it untll it goes back to at least 17. You probably wont get your dividend for at least a few quarters and the stock could continue going up in which case you might not get back in for a long time.
I'm not saying youre wrong, just I look at it differently. I consider it a core holding.
