Weekly: Bull market

As I often do for Memorial day, here is a link to Trace Adkins song "Arlington" (link1). Take a moment to remember the sacrifices made for this country.

I attended a CANSLIM Investors Business Weekly meetup. The presenters were bullish. At this point, the market and many leading stocks are extended, but this is what a bull market looks like. Many big names such as AAPL, FB, GOOG are up 15% or more since January 1. MCD is another leader. A person can learn a lot by observing (vs. predicting).
So I skewed slightly bullish this week. I added to some longs, took a few new positions (BBY, ULTA). Here are the trades (p = puts, c = calls, sell means sell-to-open, number near end is price per contract):
