Stocks to accumulate in October 2020


Our September accumulation was a great success. We have reached 100 shares accumulating a few of the positions such as PPL, PBCT, and now we will be accumulating more shares of other companies such as AT&T (T), Altria (MO), or Tyson Foods (TSN).

There are still good companies which are undervalued even in this overvalued market. It takes time to find them but once you know which companies to look for, it will pay off, in the long run, to be buying them.

Most of the stocks are dividend aristocrats. Some lost the status many years ago yet I decided to keep them, others lost the status this year due to COVID, and I decided to keep them too as I still think they are good companies, e.g. Disney (DIS) and the dividend cut or suspension is temporary.

#003 Trades opened today


We have added a few more trades today to our accounts:
 

Sold 1 PPL Nov20 30 call for +0.22 credit
Bought 1 T shares @ 28.50
Bought 1 ICSH shares @ 50.55
Sold 1 TSN Oct16 63.5 call for +0.25 credit
Bought 1 T shares @ 28.52
 

Since we have reached 100 shares, we can start selling covered calls to generate income. We sold November 20 (monthly) covered call with 30 strike price.

We are now accumulating shares of AT&T (T) in account #1. We used credit (+ some cash) from PPL covered call and reinvested that credit to one share of T. After we reach 100 shares, we will start selling covered calls too.

We sold 1 naked call against TSN converting our existing put trade into a strangle. This trade is uncovered so it poses a high risk and thus needs to be monitored. We expect, however, that both legs (put and call) of this trade expire worthless at expiration day.

We used the credit received and bought another share of AT&T (T).

#002 Trades opened today


We have added a few more trades today to our accounts:
 

Bought 10 PPL shares @ 27.08
Roll 1 IWM Oct9 150 call to Oct23 152.50 call for 0.21 credit
 

We bought 10 more shares of PPL reaching our goal of 100 shares in our account #1. Now we will start accumulating AT&T (T) shares in this account and selling covered strangles against PPL.

We rolled our IWM trade higher as the market had large swings – the futures were almost 0.90% down, then we swung up to +1.70% and collapsed back to +0.22%… big intraday swings. It ultimately helped our IWM and we could stay in the trade without rolling but no one could know what the market would do next. So we rolled to be safe.

IWM trade
 

Bought 10 PBCT shares @ 10.34
Sold 1 PPL Nov20 30 call for 0.15 credit

We also added 10 more shares of PBCT stock to our holdings in our account #4 reaching 100 shares too. We can start selling covered strangles in this account too. We will now continue accumulating a PPL stock.

We also added a call to our PPL holding in account #4.

#001 More trades opened today


We have added a few more trades today to our accounts:
 

Roll 1 IWM Sep30 148 call to Oct9 150 call for 0.53 credit
With the market renewed rally, we had to roll our IWM trade once again. We rolled it into the next week’s expiration and 150 strike. With the rally, we may need to roll this trade again tomorrow.
IWM trade
 

Bought 10 PBCT shares @ 10.17
We added new shares to our account #2 and now hold 31 shares total in this account. Our goal is to reach 100 shares so we can monetize the position by selling options around it.
 

Bought 30 PBCT shares @ 10.20
Sold 1 BAC Oct9 (weekly) 24.50 call for +0.33 credit
We added few more shares of PBCT stock in our account #4, we now hold 80 shares of this stock and our goal is to reach 100 shares so we can start selling covered calls, or covered strangles.

We also had our BAC covered call expired last Friday and therefore we sold a new covered call today for additional 0.33 credit (or $33 total credit).

Sold 1 TSN Oct16 (monthly) 56 put for 0.34 credit

Sold 1 TSN Oct16 (monthly) 56 put for 0.34 credit

We sold a put against TSN stock (Tyson Foods) and collected $34 credit. We plan on holding the put until expiration and generate income. If the put expires worthless, we will sell a new one next month, if the put gets in the money, we will attempt rolling it for credit. If it gets assigned, we will buy 100 shares and start selling covered calls.
 

TSN @ 60.22

Bought 5 PPL shares @ 26.64


We added a few more shares raising our holdings to 85. Once again, our goal is to reach 100 shares so we can start selling covered calls or covered strangles, or what have you to further monetize our position and receive more income than just the dividends.

Updating our stocks and options holdings review


For some time I was neglecting updating our stock and options holdings on this blog. Most of the time, I was updating these positions on Facebook but since I decided to leave Facebook for good, I returned back here and will be updating our positions in this blog again.

I manage four (4) accounts of various size and the strategy is simple – accumulate dividend growth stocks by:

  • small deposits every month
  • reinvesting the dividends
  • reinvesting options premiums

The goal is to pick undervalued dividend growth companies and keep buying them until we reach 100 shares.

Once we reach 100 shares, we move to another stock and start accumulating that stock too while selling covered calls on the already accumulated stock. As soon as we accumulate the new stock pick to 100 shares, we again move to another stock and start selling covered calls.

Reinvest all proceeds until the income from dividends and options premiums exceeds our expenses.

If you want to see what stocks we currently hold, which stock we are accumulating, and what options positions we trade, go to Trades & Income page.

Looks like the correction is over… boys are chasing the market up again…

Looks like the correction is over... boys are chasing the market up again...

If you were waiting for lower prices and wanted to buy in, do it quickly otherwise you just missed the boat. It seems, the 10% correction is over and we are heading up again. Not because anything has changed or the economy improved over Saturday and Sunday, but because the market players just had their mood changed and what was bad last week is no longer bad but a bargain.

I may be wrong, but the market looks extremely bullish to me.

I kinda hate it that for the last four weeks the market was falling with only a little blip in the middle and today it seems it is set for a mindless upward moving. I just hope, I am wrong and we are going to see more downside although, I am skeptical, and it is probably time to switch gears and go bullish again.

We have hit 61% retracement, Friday trading was very strong and futures are pointing for a strong open. A zig-zag move up seems inevitable.

Don’t waste money on $4,000+ seminars with bites for more $$$ seminars

Don't waste money on $4,000+ seminars with bites for more $$$ seminars

Just now, I have come across an announcement on Youtube about a never ever before and never ever in the future offered trading seminar with pre-lockdown and post-lockdown prices… “literally you get 50% off”…

So I went to the website, announcing such a great deal, to check those pre-lockdown and after-lockdown, never seen prices, and the seminars ranged from $997 to $3,997… Great discounts!

Are you kidding me?
 

computer trading

 
And then, I read the comments under the video. I thought I was dreaming, well, I couldn’t believe what I have read. Thank you letters. We are saving for your seminar, 75% saved! Love and respect! Glad to be here! Glad to hand you my hard-earned money for learning what I can learn on the internet for free!
 

Are you kidding me again?

Well, this is really good and I bet these are great seminars! Unfortunately, not for you! It is great for seminar peddlers. No matter how great those seminars are, no matter how great the trader offering it is, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

You won’t learn anything that is free on the internet. There is no secret, no magic formula, no short cut to riches. No magic seminar won’t make you rich quick.

If you could save $4,000 for a questionable seminar, then take that money and put them to work on your own. Don’t throw them out of the window for a good feeling that you might become a great trader on Friday afternoon and quit jor job on Monday morning because you attended a seminar for $4,000 of the dead Presidents! It doesn’t work that way! You throw the money out of the window and then start saving money to put the seminar knowledge in practice? Is that your strategy? Before you save another, at least, $5,000 to trade, you will forget everything you might have learned in the seminar and you would have to start over. And even if you remember everything from the seminar, in the end, you will learn that you need to purchase another, never before offered seminar for $8,000 per day with the guru himself watching over your shoulder. But, it will not be the guru himself but his left-hand associate because if you really need a guru himself to teach you personally, you have to buy a $50,000 personal coaching course…
 

Don’t be a fool!
 

I thought that these days in the era of free, no commissioning trading, people can learn and trade on their own. Yet, peddlers are still making their millions selling holy grails to fools.
 

Trading, or investing in the stock market is about things no one will be ever able to teach you but only you yourself. You need to put an effort to learn to trade. If you are really interested in this business, go to the internet, start searching topics you are interested in and learn on your own.
 

Are you interested in options?

Then search topics about “how to trade options”.

Are you interested in stocks?

Then search topics about “how to trade stocks”.

Are you interested in dividend investing?

Then search topics “how to invest in dividend stocks”.

Are you interested in forex?

Then search topics “how to trade forex”… or commodities, or futures, or anything on this planet… but you have to learn it yourself. And you can learn it for free, or a smaller cost than $4,000 for a seminar.

The market keeps struggling, but it’s good folks!

The market keeps struggling, but it's good folks!

The market struggles to find the ground. A few bounce attempts failed. We are currently down -1.56% and it seems we are heading towards 200 DMA.

 

 

But this is ultimately a good thing, providing this market with a much needed correction. We rallied up hard with no break or pullbacks and we need to correct this craziness. Just make sure, you trade conservatively to preserve capital.

I keep accumulating cheap stocks (and there are many to choose from) and if this market keeps sliding, more cheap stocks will pop up.

We are 21 days into the correction of 10% as of today. You may expect this to be up to 15% correction (it seems like we are heading that way) or we may even enter a 20% bear market. But nothing goes down forever and I am preparing my ammunition for a potential reversal and buying stocks on sale.

Good luck and stay safe!
