ESV is in a frustrating position as it has declined significantly since we initially purchased shares. In most cases, it has been and will remain in winter until the price appreciates. The reverse split may create additional difficulty in implementing the standard Snider Method. At this time we are not recommending clients sell the shares. If you reach a point where you can sell calls on your shares of ESV or the share price is similar to your last purchase price, please contact us. We will evaluate the position together to decide if transmogrification is the appropriate course to take.
