Still Bullish on QCOM, but Taking Some Profits

Today I am looking at closing out my October in the money call options on Qualcomm (QCOM) but purchasing longer dated call spreads... I purchased the October $37 call options for $1.19 before they reported earnings and popped. I am not looking at closing all of the contracts for a slight premium and rolling into January 41 strike calls but on half of the contracts writing the January 47.50 strike calls against them. This was I have some serious upside potential but I am taking all of my money off the table plus a couple hundred bucks. I still see some room to the upside on Qualcomm which is why I am choosing to create spreads on only half of my January option position, the other half I will either take profits or convert into either diagonal call spreads or vertical call spreads on continued strength in the underlying.
