Taking Profits In Kraft Heinz

The recent financial performance was quite good in many ways. I'm particularly impressed with the improvement in the capital structure. The problem is that the shares aren't objectively cheap. This point becomes quite stark when we compare this stock to a 10-year treasury note. The options I wrote in my previous missive are likely going to expire worthless, so I'm doing nothing with them. They reduced risk and enhanced returns. Again.
