I added a stocks position to my Genetics Portfolio, CSTL, for a debit of $27.06 per share.

In my options holdings, TLT goes ex-dividend on Thursday. The underlying stock pays dividends monthly. My short iron condor options position is out of the money and so is an unlikely candidate for early assignment, so I’m taking no action.
