    PFE 20-strikes for Jan. 2014 (100 contracts with stock at $30.67). .

    JCP 5-strikes for Jan. 2015 (200 contracts with stock at $14.62)

    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 49K. Here are the asked prices of each investment now compared with just three months ago to show just how that 49K was earned:

      01) $4,600 earned on AIG (40 contracts at $27 now; was $142 on 12/31). $1,080 remains.
      02) $8,320 earned on AGNC (40 contracts at $65 now; was $273 on 12/31). $2,600 remains.
      03) $3,700 earned on C (50 contracts at $18 now; was $92 on 12/31). $900 remains.
      04) $2,320 earned on CSCO (80 contracts at $15 now; was $44 on 12/31). $1,200 remains.
      05) $600 LOSS on PBR (60 contracts at $118 now; was $108 on 12/31). $7,080 remains.
      06) $2,800 earned on PFE (50 contracts at $17 now; was $73 on 12/31). $850 remains
      07) $2,765 earned on new PFE investment (50 contracts - includes $35 in commissions). $850 remains.
      08) $7,000 earned on HPQ (100 contracts at $15 now; was $85 on 12/31). $1,500 remains.
      09) $2,660 earned on INTC (70 contracts at $26 now; was $64 on 12/31). $1,820 remains.
      10) $9,100 earned on BBY (100 contracts at $25 now; was $116 on 12/31). $2,500 remains.
      11) $3,000 earned on F (150 contracts at $11 now; was $31 on 12/31). $1,650 remains.
      12) $2,010 earned on TEVA (30 contracts at $46 now; was $113 on 12/31). $1,380 remains.
      13) $1,580 LOSS on new AAPL investment net of commissions. $6,700 remains.
      14) $2,685 earned on new GLW investment net of commissions. $1,650 remains.
      15) $1,160 earned on new BIDU investment net of commissions. $5,220 remains.
      16) $2,460 earned on new BAC investment net of commissions. $1,200 remains.
      17) $2,320 LOSS on new JCP investment net of commissions. $7,800 remains.
      18) $1,400 LOSS on JCP (200 contracts at $85; was $78 on 12/31). At least $8,500 remains to Jan. 2014.

      Those are truly stunning declines in option premiums.
