  1. I own NGHCO and it still shows up in my Schwab account and it still trades every day. If it is to be called on 2/03, when will it actually be withdrawn from my account? I very infrequently have stocks that are called and don’t remember the actual logistics. Thanks in advance for any info.

      On 2/3 your account should show the shares being withdrawn and a cash credit of $25 per share plus about 9-10 cents for dividends from 1/15.

  2. Will trade in a narrow range unti call. By trading that range I could possibly boost the return a couple percent with low risk. Probably not worth the trouble except for money just sitting around. A safe way to practice the technique.

    1. Thanks so much, Tim. As usual your sharp eyes and mind is the BEST for sure.
      I tried to find something to sell. Realizing that BEPC (the spin off of Brookfield Renewable) has just reset the yield below 3%. Sold them all and bought just 300 shares of NTTNP within 30 minutes of market opening or so. It gapped up momentarily above $26 and then back to just below $26.
