    Few trades...

    Sell the MET April $7.50 Put for $1.05 (METPU) (target: $0.65)

    Sell HTE Aug $2.50 Put for $0.65 or $0.70 (HTETZ) (target: $0.45)

    LNC and PFG are good trades also.

    Try to do the transactions cash secured. In other words, if you get assigned you can buy the shares with cash and not margin.
