We opened a covered call on AMT on Apr 1, 2021 (so far it hasn’t been an April Fool joke!). The strategy is working well. In addition to collecting the option premiums we have also received $251 in dividends. Stock appreciation is generating the bulk of the profit. The appreciation has forced us to “roll … Continue reading Covered Call Strategy on AMT after 102 days…..profit of 13.4% or 47.8% annualized.
YTD the account is up almost 16%…..which is in line with the goal of 1-2% growth per month. The returns were much higher in 2020 but it was much easier to generate returns last year.

Covered Call on CVS, positive contribution from stock, option premiums and dividend….Unrealized profit of $1,098, 5.1% return in 49 days or 37.8% annualized.

I don’t … Continue reading Lumber prices are ridiculous….CC on WY (Weyhauser) ….can we make enough on the CC to offset some of inflated lumber prices on reno?
