Continuation of Covered Calls Position in Devon Energy Corp.

Upon the August 18th, 2017 options expiration, the Covered Calls position in Devon Energy Corp. (ticker symbol DVN) expired with the stock price below the $35.00 strike price.  So, the August Call options expired and the 500 shares of Devon stock were retained in the Covered Calls Advisor Portfolio.  Today, when Devon stock had risen to $34.12, a sell-to-open order was executed to sell 5 October 20th, 2017 Call options at the $35.00 strike price for $.89 per share to continue the Devon Covered Calls position.

The history of this Devon Energy position so far as well as a potential return-on-investment result is detailed below:
