WDC to STX swap

#CoveredCalls – Thanks to @OptionIceman for reminding me WDC had suspended it’s divvy. I was not aware of this. STX is a similar company with a similar chart and a similar divvy. Liquidated my WDC and bought an equal number of shares in STX. WDC was underwater so I’ll roll all that into the new position and go from there with an STX basis.

Thanks again Iceman!
