Trade adjustment – Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp (KOG) new covered call

The previous February covered call for Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp expired worthless leaving me with maximum profit of $52 per contract (5.47%; 3% annualized profit). Since the option expired worthless I am allowed to sell another contract against the same stock.

I did sell another covered call this morning and collected another $60 per contract.

How do you trade covered calls? Do you trade them at all? If you trade covered calls, do you trade them against stocks you already own or do you trade buy-write, total return trades?
