Another DRIP dripped away

Bought to close $DRIP Nov 17 40 calls @ .05. Sold for 2.00 on 8/29.
I only have 2 positions left in this. Dec 35 and 40 calls. It’s been a great run for a few months but if the bear market in oil is really over then we may be done with this one for a while.


This was traded at TT, looked it up, a 1 drug(childhood epilepsy) bio with huge premium. A $13 stock price, an Oct. straddle goes for about 12. The company reports phase 3 results any day now. The TT trade is a 4/9/26/31 IC for 3.90.
