Busted Roll: KKD

My KKD position has been sitting on the shelf since my vertical option spreads expired worthless on Aug. 16, waiting for a fresh buy signal that would allow a roll into a new options position.

That signal never came, and today the stock gapped sharply lower on a large negative earnings surprise, eliminating any chance to roll forward and signalling that it was time to take KKD off the shelf and calculate the profit or loss.

I've updated my initial entry post with details and results.
