United Health Group -- Closed

The initial UNH covered call position expired with the stock out-of-the-money. Today the 300 shares of stock were sold. It was decided not to continue with selling additional call options against the 300 shares owned because the potential annualized return-on-investment available for such a transaction did not exceed this advisor's threshold of >25% annualized return if stock price unchanged (ARIU).
