Buying more time for a winner

Today I closed out my existing long call position in Ariad Pharmaceuticals, which was nicely profitable due to a steady rally in the underlying common stock.  I used the proceeds to open a new long call position in Ariad, but at a higher strike price and much later expiration date (Jan 2018).  I also started a common stock position in Ariad.  Additionally, I used some of the proceeds, along with some available cash, to start a small position in Cempra.
