    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 TWO percent unless the market really collapses. Of the 105K or so that I expect to earn from this portfolio which started the year out valued at 250K, I have already garnered 60K. Here are the asked prices of each investment now compared with just four months ago to show just how that 60K was earned:

      01) $4,640 earned on AIG (40 contracts at $26 now; was $142 on 12/31). $1,040 remains.
      02) $8,640 earned on AGNC (40 contracts at $57 now; was $273 on 12/31). $2,280 remains.
      03) $3,800 earned on C (50 contracts at $16 now; was $92 on 12/31). $800 remains.
      04) $2,240 earned on CSCO (80 contracts at $16 now; was $44 on 12/31). $1,280 remains.
      05) $1,620 earned on PBR (60 contracts at $81 now; was $108 on 12/31). $4,860 remains.
      06) $2,650 earned on PFE (50 contracts at $20 now; was $73 on 12/31). $1,000 remains
      07) $2,615 earned on new PFE investment (50 contracts - includes $35 in commissions). $1,000 remains.
      08) $7,100 earned on HPQ (100 contracts at $14 now; was $85 on 12/31). $1,400 remains.
      09) $3,430 earned on INTC (70 contracts at $15 now; was $64 on 12/31). $1,050 remains.
      10) $9,500 earned on BBY (100 contracts at $21 now; was $116 on 12/31). $2,100 remains.
      11) $3,450 earned on F (150 contracts at $8 now; was $31 on 12/31). $1,200 remains.
      12) $2,040 earned on TEVA (30 contracts at $45 now; was $113 on 12/31). $1,350 remains.
      13) $240 LOSS on new AAPL investment net of commissions. $5,440 remains.
      14) $3,135 earned on new GLW investment net of commissions. $1,200 remains.
      15) $420 earned on new BIDU investment net of commissions. $5,960 remains.
      16) $2,530 earned on new BAC investment net of commissions. $1,200 remains.
      17) $380 earned on new JCP investment net of commissions. $5,100 remains.
      18) $2,800 earned on JCP (200 contracts at $64; was $78 on 12/31). At least $6,400 remains to Jan. 2014.

      Those are truly stunning declines in option premiums
