He also overstates rolling calls that have become at or in the money. He at one point suggests one can roll these indefinitely. In a strong bull market, you may be continually rolling up a few strikes and out a few months, but eventually you are going to hit the last LEAPS series and will be stuck. In this situation you end up just delaying the inevitable loss or calling out of your shares.
