Analysis: Thinking that MSFT was quite oversold, we entered a bull put spread back on Nov 22. All we needed to capture the full 22% yield on the trade was for MSFT to remain above $24 by today's market close. With the stock closing at $26 today, we were able to allow the postion to expire worthless for the full yield.
