731 – 6 p.m. New York time

I have updated the BA, FB and TWTR analyses with results. I have updated SBUX with my actions after assignment, but as one leg of the position won’t be resolved until Friday, I shall defer calculating of results.

7/31 – 10 a.m. New York time

Outcomes: I entered a position on ADM and exited positions on BA, FB and TWTR. An option on my SBUX  position was assigned, and I exited the entire position, both options and shares.

I shall update the analyses of symbols exited with results after the closing bell.

7/30 – 1:20 a.m. New York time

I shall be looking at ADM as a potential earnings play. I also have four mandatory exits of positions approaching expiration: BA, FB, SBUX and TWTR.
