Whatever your view on Obamacare, your Dividend Pro bet on profiting from the exploding healthcare sector has yielded you some juicy profits.
Since I first recommended Omega Healthcare (OHI) on July 12, you took profits of 57.1% on July 19, and another set of 100% gains July 30. Then on Aug. 16, I recommended you take another bite at the apple by buying the $25 December call options.
With these second set of Omega Healthcare options now up 57.14%, I am recommending that you sell half of your options here to lock in your gains.
Hold on to the stock and the rest of your options for potentially even bigger gains in the future.
