      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Here are the asked prices of each investment now compared with just ten weeks ago to show just how that 41K was earned:

      01) $4,560 earned on AIG (40 contracts at $28 now; was $142 on 12/31). $1,120 remains.
      02) $6,920 earned on AGNC (40 contracts at $100 now; was $273 on 12/31). $4,000 remains.
      03) $3,700 earned on C (50 contracts at $18 now; was $92 on 12/31). $900 remains.
      04) $2,400 earned on CSCO (80 contracts at $14 now; was $44 on 12/31). $1,120 remains.
      05) $600 LOSS on PBR (60 contracts at $118 now; was $108 on 12/31). $7,080 remains.
      06) $2,250 earned on PFE (50 contracts at $28 now; was $73 on 12/31). $1,400 remains
      07) $2,215 earned on new PFE investment (50 contracts - includes $35 in commissions). $1,400 remains.
      08) $6,900 earned on HPQ (100 contracts at $16 now; was $85 on 12/31). $1,600 remains.
      09) $2,520 earned on INTC (70 contracts at $28 now; was $64 on 12/31). $1,960 remains.
      10) $8,700 earned on BBY (100 contracts at $29 now; was $116 on 12/31). $2,900 remains.
      11) $2,400 earned on F (150 contracts at $15 now; was $31 on 12/31). $2,250 remains.
      12) $2,130 earned on TEVA (30 contracts at $42 now; was $113 on 12/31). $1,260 remains.
      13) $1,780 LOSS on new AAPL investment net of commissions. $6,980 remains.
      14) $1,935 earned on new GLW investment net of commissions. $2,400 remains.
      15) $440 earned on new BIDU investment net of commissions. $5,940 remains.
      16) $1,860 earned on new BAC investment net of commissions. $1,800 remains.
      17) $3,120 LOSS on new JCP investment net of commissions. $18,200 remains.
      18) $2,600 LOSS on JCP (200 contracts at $91; was $78 on 12/31). At least $4,300 remains to Jan. 2014.

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

      After earning 41K in ten weeks on a portfolio that started out with 250K, there is still at least 55K remaining to be earned by Jan. 2014
