Daily Market Update – December 5, 2014 (8:00 AM)

The Week in Review will be posted by 6 PM and the Weekend Update will be posted by Noon on Sunday.

Today’s possible outcomes include:

Assignments:  DOW ($48), GPS ($39.50), MOS ($45)

Rollovers: GDX

Expirations:  eBay

The following positions were ex-dividend this week: JOY (12/2 $0.20), HFC (12/2 $0.32), MOS (12/2 $0.25), HAL (12/3 $0.18), COH (12/3 $0.34) NEM (12/3 $0.025)

The following will be ex-dividend next week: GM (12/8 $0.30)

This week, once again, due to the relatively high costs of some rollovers, I may prefer to let contracts elapse and try to simply sell new calls on positions next week.
