    Third investment in the 200K insane returns short-term naked put-writing portfolio

    It's a familiar face - JCP. With the stock at $16.59, I was able to sell a total of 115 July 10-strike naked puts for $25 apiece. Net proceeds after commissions of $2,805. With cash margin requirements of $14,605, the nominal return for the 12.2 weeks to expiration is 19.2% which works out to be 81.8% annualized. This portfolio isn't called the insane returns portfolio for nothing.

    So far I have used up only 49K in margin availability; 151K in cash is still lying idle awaiting further investments.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • What are your losses on BIDU?

      • As you saw yesterday in my weekly update, my PROFITS in BIDU from inception are $5,205 or 1.7%. That still beats both the stock performance and the S & P 500 performance. What I lost on Friday are most of the paper gains of 49K that I had at Thursday's close when such gains were 16% on a 9% rise in the stock from inception.

        But you would have to be crazy to even think that I could at this point be showing losses from inception? How can I possibly be down when the stock is essentially flat with where I got in but a month has gone by and the covered calls I am short have to be gains for me? Even you can't be stupid enough to really think that I have losses at this point. So why do you post such nonsense?

        In the fullness of time, I have never lost money on my franchise investments and BIDU figures to be the very best franchise investment.
