2021 Week 23 investing and trading report

23 weeks of providing our investing and trading account report showing successful growth. We kept buying assets – dividend growth stocks and trading options around those positions. We consider our stocks to be assets, like real estate units which we rent to tenants and those tenants pay us rent. So our stocks, like tenants, pay us rent to own them – dividends and options premiums.

We also started our $100 Challenge account which is slowly but successfully growing. It will be a slow process to grow $100 to a large account, but I can already see that we will exceed our goal. I will be providing our $100 Challenge account report this Tuesday. SUBSCRIBE to our program if you too want to join our team and grow a small account to a large one.

Let’s go and review this week’s investing and trading.

Dividend Investing and Trading Report

Last week, we have received a $5.72 in dividends income. We feel that the income will be growing faster as more of our holdings mature and become eligible for dividend payouts.

The chart below indicates our current annual dividend payout from our dividend stock holdings. A dividend growth investor needs to be aware of this payout from each stock. The chart indicates that some stocks contribute (or will be contributing to our income with large sums while others contribute very little. That can be a problem. If a company that contributes with large dividends suddenly cuts the dividend, it will have a very significant impact on our income (for example, if OMF cuts the dividend, or suspends it, the impact on our portfolio dividend income will be significant.

I am OK with this imbalance during the accumulation phase but plan to address it in the next phase of cultivating our portfolio. In other words, in the next phase, I will be accumulating stocks with lesser payout to match the stocks that pay more in dividends. If a company cuts the dividend, the impact of a lost income will be mitigated.

Last week, our dividend income reached 52.30% of our dividend income goal.

Options Investing and Trading Report

Last week we didn’t trade much. We rolled a few trades that got in trouble. We also reopened some of the trades that expired two weeks ago and we were waiting for the market to show its direction.

The new trades and adjustments delivered $1,191.00 options premiums last week.

You can watch all our trades in this spreadsheet and you can also subscribe to our newsletter for our trade alerts.

Expected Future Dividend Income

As the table at the beginning of this report indicates, our aggressive dividend growth stocks accumulation is starting to show significant progress in our future dividends income. Our portfolio dividend yield and dividend growth will be bringing us almost $127,118.28 in 20 years and $5,596,366.12 in 30 years. We will keep aggressively accumulating dividend growth stocks to generate liveable income sooner than in 20 years. And the portfolio is starting to show this to be happening.

Market value of our holdings

Our non-adjusted stock holdings market value increased from $75,289.49 to $78,473.04. We did not add any new positions last week.

Stock holdings week 23
Our goal is to accumulate 100 shares of each stock of our interest and we are getting to that goal. However, as mentioned above, this harms our dividend payout and portfolio growth. Although, it is temporary. Therefore, once we reach this goal (which we set because of the ability to trade covered calls), we will start accumulating these shares to equalize our dividend income rather than have an equal amount of shares.

Investing and trading ROI


Our options trading delivered a 2.18% monthly ROI in June 2021, totaling a 34.03% ROI YTD.

Our account grew by 251.54% this year.

Our options trading averaged $4,102.17 per month this year. If this trend continues, we are on track to make $49,226.00 trading options in 2021.

Old SPX trades repair


This week we have not done any adjustments to our old SPX trades. We are still sitting on those trades and waiting for the untouched side to close so we can roll the trades again. The goal will be to roll the trades until we will be able to close them for at least break even and release the buying power. We will keep doing this only if the resulting trade will be a credit trade or a very small debit. If adjusting these trades would require adding more new money, we would rather close these trades and move on.


Accumulating Growth Stocks


Last week, we SNOW to our portfolio.


Accumulating Dividend Growth Stocks


Last week, we added TD, SPLG, and ICSH to our portfolio.

Our goal is to reach 100 shares of high-quality dividend stocks and build a weekly dividend income as per this calendar, but we have made no changes to this goal last week:

Market Outlook


The market continued its sideways bound trading when optimism was replaced with inflation fears just to dismiss them later upon job report. Tech stocks continue struggling and the entire market seems to be consolidating. And that is good.


55% probability of going up


It is hard to say where we will go from here. It can be down as well as up. No one knows. We have to wait for more clues to find out. As of now, we are in a range and we have to wait. The market is slightly skewed to the upside but it can all change on a dime the very next day.

SPX June 11 2021 outlook

I still expect the stock market will most likely push to the $4,300 – $4,400 level (second half of July 2021) and then we may see some serious correction (15% to 25%) before the market resumes its uptrend. We are still in a very strong secular bull market, so do not expect any catastrophe or doomsday as talking heads and Perma-bears start crawling out of their holes. But that is just pure speculation.

TW Account holdings week 23

Or stock holdings still do not beat the market. However, I expect it to change over time. S&P 500 grew 46.83% since we opened our portfolio while our portfolio grew 16.69% only. On YTD basis, the S&P 500 grew 16.99% and our portfolio 9.70%.

I expect our stock holdings to start outperforming the market as they mature. However, these are just our stock holdings. The entire portfolio beats the market by far thanks to monetizing those positions.

Our goal is to grow this account to $1,000,000.00 value in ten years. We are in year two.

Our dividend goal and future dividends


TW Received vs Projected Dividends week 23

We are on track to accomplish our dividend income goal, currently, we are at 52.30% of the goal to reach $1,071 of dividend income this year.

However, the chart below indicates that our dividend income will possibly exceed this goal as we accumulated enough shares to receive $3,387.82 in dividends.

Our account cumulative return


The chart below indicates our cumulative adjusted return. It shows how the last week’s selloff shook down our returns but we are recovering along with the market.

As of today, our account cumulative return is 27.15% (since March 13, 2021).


Conclusion of our investing and trading report


This week our options trading exceeded our expectations. I hope, the rest of the month will be even better.

We will continue accumulating the dividend growth stocks in our portfolio to reach 100 shares. We will also replenish our cash reserves to bring them back to 25% of our current net-liq value.

We will report our next week’s results next Saturday. Until then, good luck and good trading!
