Abbott Labs (ABT) Entered in August $44.89 sold covered call Oct 30, Jan $52.50 (ABT-AX) for $1.35...cost basis $43.54. The stock is trading over it's Strike price. However we have 9 to 10 weeks remaining until opex. Tonight Cramer on Mad Money gave a technical chart outlook, sees ABT heading higher, maybe? Locked in now for a 20.58% gain, may roll up as we near opex...we'll assess then.
