10:40 a.m. New York time

I’ve updated APA Analysis with results.

10:10 a.m. New York time

I’ve exited my short iron condor position on APA for a $1.09 debit, a 15.5% profit. Analysis upcoming.

In shares, I’ve added IBP to my growth portfolio for a $71.50 debit.

(I have referred to my primary portfolio as “upgrades and revisions”. The word “growth” better describes the goal, and so I shall use that terminology going forward. The selection is based on expectations of growing earnings.)
