- Purchased 45 shares of $ETO to the portfolio. This increased the Projected Annual Dividend Income by $97.
- Rolled a 01/28 $50 Kroger covered call into a 02/11 $45 this week, netting $144 premium on the $45. Kroger has been on a hot streak lately and I believe they are overvalued. Additionally, I'm slowly looking to trim the number of portfolio holdings to 40 so I do not mind if this gets assigned.
- Closed a Verizon Iron Butterfly 50-52-54 for a very minimal profit.
- Closed an ABBV put due to expire on 01/28. This was a miss.
- Was assigned a Comcast (CMCSA) put RIGHT in the money! I've wanted to add Comcast to the portfolio to beef up the communications sector and sold a $50 strike / 01/28 expiration cash-secured put on 01/18 for $114 premium. Comcast closed yesterday at $49.72 so I don't think I could have done any better! These shares added $108 to Projected Annual Dividend Income.
- Added $1,000 to the portfolio in savings in January meeting my goal for the year.
- Honestly, not much. I've been pleased with the performance during the recent market choppiness, where the portfolio diversification has helped ensure the fluctuations are not as wild as the Nasdaq index.
- Evaluate covered call opportunities.
- Slowly shrink number of positions to ~40 while maintaining a similar sector breakdown.
