In the blog article, “Wal-Mart – Generic Drugs – Options Investing”, we analyzed the generic drug industry in light of Wal-Mart’s (WMT) introduction of $4 generic drugs.

In article, “Generic Drug Investing Returns +1.3% in Nov.”, we showed the profitability of the strategy, and in article, “Generic Drug Investing – Returns Cool +4.6% in Jan 07”, we selected covered calls positions for February of 2007. We only found one position for PRX for February of 2007, but it generated a very nice return of +3.8% in only 24 days!

With Wal-Mart’s $4 generic drug offering, we are still bullish on the generic drug players. Using PowerOptions SmartSearchXL stock options search tool we found the following generic drug covered calls stock option position for stock options expiration in April of 2007:
