Intel Corp. -- Closed

Last Friday was expiration Friday for January 2011. A decision was made today to sell the 300 shares owned in Intel Corp.(INTC). The Covered Calls Advisor views both Intel and Microsoft prospects similarly in that their sales are both correlated strongly with PC sales. This advisor has determined that Microsoft's software-focused product offerings have better ongoing growth prospects than the hardware-focused and commoditized nature of Intel. So the Intel position was sold and the preferred Microsoft covered calls position will be continued.
