Wednesday's Agenda

Updated by eliminating ADMN, which doesn't trade on my no-fee brokerage Robinhood Markets, substituting TBNK in its stead.

I have entered five small-lots positions drawn from the pool listed in Wednesday's Prospects. The trades will be in MRLN, CIGI, SREV, ADMN TBNK and GALT.

As expected, HPQ and SDRL failed to meet my standards for earnings plays using options.
