    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 about FO

    • Despite the incredible safety, the 2013 return should be about FORTY percent 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 47K. Here are the asked prices of each investment now compared with just eleven weeks ago to show just how that 47K was earned:

      01) $3,960 earned on AIG (40 contracts at $43 now; was $142 on 12/31). $1,720 remains.
      02) $8,160 earned on AGNC (40 contracts at $69 now; was $273 on 12/31). $2,760 remains.
      03) $3,550 earned on C (50 contracts at $21 now; was $92 on 12/31). $1,050 remains.
      04) $2,000 earned on CSCO (80 contracts at $19 now; was $44 on 12/31). $1,520 remains.
      05) $840 LOSS on PBR (60 contracts at $122 now; was $108 on 12/31). $7,320 remains.
      06) $2,350 earned on PFE (50 contracts at $26 now; was $73 on 12/31). $1,300 remains
      07) $2,315 earned on new PFE investment (50 contracts - includes $35 in commissions). $1,300 remains.
      08) $7,400 earned on HPQ (100 contracts at $11 now; was $85 on 12/31). $1,100 remains.
      09) $2,590 earned on INTC (70 contracts at $27 now; was $64 on 12/31). $1,890 remains.
      10) $8,800 earned on BBY (100 contracts at $28 now; was $116 on 12/31). $2,800 remains.
      11) $2,700 earned on F (150 contracts at $13 now; was $31 on 12/31). $1,950 remains.
      12) $1,980 earned on TEVA (30 contracts at $47 now; was $113 on 12/31). $1,410 remains.
      13) $460 earned on new AAPL investment net of commissions. $4,740 remains.
      14) $2,385 earned on new GLW investment net of commissions. $1,950 remains.
      15) $620 LOSS on new BIDU investment net of commissions. $7,000 remains.
      16) $2,160 earned on new BAC investment net of commissions. $1,500 remains.
      17) $2,420 LOSS on new JCP investment net of commissions. $7,900 remains.
      18) $270 LOSS on JCP (200 contracts at $79; was $78 on 12/31). At least $7,900 remains to Jan. 2014.
