    Just look at how ostensibly safe these positions are. They all expire in over a year from inception and I will hold until at least the first week of January 2014 to avoid having to pay capital taxes on them in the year 2013 and to qualify for long-term capital gains when I do have to pay the taxes in 2014. Despite the incredible safety, the 2013 return should be between 35% and 40% unless the market really collapses. Of the 100K or so that I expect to earn from this portfolio which started the year out valued at 250K, I have already garnered 38K. Here are the asked prices of each investment now compared with just three weeks ago to show just how that 38K was earned:

    01) $4,000 earned on AIG (40 contracts at $42 now; was $142 on 12/31)
    02) $6,040 earned on AGNC (40 contracts at $122 now; was $273 on 12/31)
    03) $3,050 earned on C (50 contracts at $31 now; was $92 on 12/31)
    04) $2,080 earned on CSCO (80 contracts at $18 now; was $44 on 12/31)
    05) $4,520 LOSS on PBR (60 contracts at $183 now; was $108 on 12/31)
    06) $1,800 earned on PFE (50 contracts at $37 now; was $73 on 12/31)
    07) $1,765 earned on new PFE investment (50 contracts - includes $35 in commissions)
    08) $6,300 earned on HPQ (100 contracts at $22 now; was $85 on 12/31)
    09) $1,680 earned on INTC ($70 contracts at $40 now; was $64 on 12/31)
    10) $5,500 earned on BBY (100 contracts at $61 now; was $116 on 12/31)
    11) $1,650 earned on F (150 contracts at $20 now; was $31 on 12/31)
    12) $1,710 earned on TEVA (30 contracts at $56 now; was $113 on 12/31)
    13) $480 LOSS on new AAPL investment net of commissions
    14) $1,635 earned on new GLW investment net of commissions
    15) $420 LOSS on new BIDU investment net of commissions
    16) $1,110 earned on new BAC investment net of commissions
    17) $1,480 earned on new JCP investment net of commissions
    18) $3,200 earned on JCP (200 contracts at $62; was $78 on 12/31)

    Those are truly stunning declines in option premiums in just four weeks. However, decline in the VIX fear factor index since year-end has been from about 23 to 13.

    I consider myself to be one of the foremost masters in the nation in this kind of investing and I'm about the only one who publishes this stuff and who tries to teach it. In non-crash markets, my performance is second to none. Last year my portfolios registered a 42% gain while the year before in a flat market, I earned a stupendous 58%.

    Sentiment: Buy
