    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 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 46K. Here are the asked prices of each investment now compared with just eleven weeks ago to show just how that 46K was earned:

      01) $4,400 earned on AIG (40 contracts at $32 now; was $142 on 12/31). $1,280 remains.
      02) $7,720 earned on AGNC (40 contracts at $80 now; was $273 on 12/31). $3,200 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) $420 earned on PBR (60 contracts at $101 now; was $108 on 12/31). $6,060 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) $7,200 earned on HPQ (100 contracts at $13 now; was $85 on 12/31). $1,300 remains.
      09) $2,590 earned on INTC (70 contracts at $27 now; was $64 on 12/31). $1,890 remains.
      10) $9,000 earned on BBY (100 contracts at $26 now; was $116 on 12/31). $2,600 remains.
      11) $2,850 earned on F (150 contracts at $12 now; was $31 on 12/31). $1,800 remains.
