Your position in LifeLock, Inc. (NYSE: LOCK) jumped 4.53% yesterday.

Any time there is a big jump in a stock, it’s a good time to book option gains, as the implied volatility makes the value of options soar.

So sell your February $17 call options (LOCK150220C00017000) to lock in a 105% gain. Hold on to the stock for now, as we might revisit options in this position.

Your position in the Rubicon Project (NYSE: RUBI) has also hit its tightened stop, and you were stopped out for a 10.2% gain.

As usual when we stop out of a stock, make sure you sell your Rubicon March 2015 $15 calls (RUBI150320C00015000) as soon as possible as well.
