Let’s book profits on our Beyond Meat (BYND) and Square (SQ) positions.
We spent a long time digging our way out of the underwater SQ position and are finally moving on with a profit. It’s a small one, but it’s much better than the huge loss we were facing.
SQ throws off excellent premiums, so we may trade it again with a fresh position.
