Short Week in Review

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!  This will be a short update due to the holiday, but I'll pick up in the next few weeks releasing some of my picks and analysis. 

This week I've managed to update my Portfolio Tracker on google sheets and I'm pleased with the results.  It's pretty similar to Excel but there are some quirks. Linking between spreadsheets is very different, but there are some positives. Functions like UNIQUE & QUERY, and GOOGLEFINANCE provide benefit even if I haven't unlocked the full potential of them yet.  

Regardless, I want to minimize the effort to update each week and I've been successful in setting everything up for minimal effort. 

Below is an example of the main dashboard to track weekly progress and future growth potential. 

Here's the breakdown of current holdings that  is on the Portfolio link.

Here is the weekly portfolio tracker to ensure that I'm making the right level of progress. This is currently on the website under Progress Tracker.

This week was a small pickup of $34 in dividend income, and $204 of option income selling a covered call for WLK $95 strike price. I acquired WLK selling a cash-secured put for $95 strike price, collecting $134 and exercising around $89. This became my first wheel trade.

I've added a fair bit of cash ($7.3K) to the portfolio in December and pushed the Projected Annual Dividend Income to $8.4K. While I was around those levels a month ago, there was some rebalancing into higher quality stocks based off completion of the screener.

This week I added two positions:

  • STOR - 4.5% Dividend Yield - STOR Capital is a publicly traded American real estate investment trust headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona. Berkshire Hathaway owns 9% of the company.
  • CTRE - 4.73% Dividend Yield - CareTrust REIT is a self-administered, publicly-traded real estate investment trust engaged in the ownership, acquisition, development and leasing of skilled nursing, seniors housing and other healthcare-related properties. With a nationwide portfolio of long-term net-leased properties, and a growing portfolio of quality operators leasing them, CareTrust REIT is pursuing both external and organic growth opportunities across the United States.
I also added 10 more shares of XYLD

In the last week of the year, I'll spell out my selection criteria, work on 2022 goals and I think we can close out the year with a resounding success!

Hope everybody enjoys their holiday break!
