2022 Week 02 investing and trading report

The market keeps its choppy trading on fears. Investors are getting rid of the high multiple stocks and with the bathwater, they are pouring out the baby too. The selling had an impact on our net-liq although not as bad as the prior week. Our options trading increased slightly too as we were rebalancing our portfolio options holdings.

Dividend Investing and Trading Report

Last week we have received $90.00 in dividends bringing January’s dividend income to $226.25.

We bought:

  • 20 shares of RYLD
  • 5 shares of IEP

We also sold the following shares as the stocks didn’t perform as expected:

Last week we didn’t buy any new positions in growth stocks.


Options Investing and Trading Report

Last week we rolled a few of our strangle trades to keep our account safe. Each time the stock moved up or down towards one or the other strike price, it consumed our buying power. Rolling the trade to the center of our strangle, we brought in credit and released buying power.

These adjustments delivered our January income by $402.00 bringing January total to $4,258.00.

We were actively trading our SPX strategy that delivered -$595.00 weekly income (loss).

You can watch all our trades in this spreadsheet. You can watch the spreadsheet and look for a “NEW” indication next to the trading date. When the indicator shows up, it is typically good for up to 3 days to follow that trade.

Expected Future Dividend Income

We have received $90.00 in dividends last week. Our portfolio currently yields 4.84% at $98,156.02 market value.

Our projected annual dividend income in 10 years is $26,029.25 but that projection is if we do absolutely nothing and let our positions grow on their own without adding new positions or reinvesting the dividends.

We are also set to receive a $4,692.63 annual dividend income. We are 18.03% of our 10 year goal of $26,029.25 dividend income.

Future Divi on YOC week 02

The chart above shows how our future dividend income is based on the future yield on cost and what dividend income we may expect in the future. The expected dividend growth depends on what stocks we are adding to our portfolio and the stocks’ 3 years average dividend growth rate. It is interesting to see what passive income we may enjoy 10, 20, 25, or 30 years from now.


Market value of our holdings

Our non-adjusted stock holdings market value decreased from $131,541.85 to $131,493.57 last week.

In 2022 we plan on accumulating dividend stocks, monetizing these positions, HFEA strategy, and SPX trading. We plan on raising more of our holdings to 100 shares so we can start selling covered calls. We continued rebalancing our options trades that released buying power significantly. That allowed us to start buying shares of our interest again.

Stock holdings week 02

Our goal is to accumulate 100 shares of dividend growth stocks we liked and then start selling covered calls or strangles around those positions. We also planed on reinvesting all dividends back to those holdings.

Investing and trading ROI


Our options trading delivered a 4.34% monthly ROI in January 2022, totaling a 4.34% ROI YTD. We hope that in 2022 we exceed our 45% annual revenue selling options against dividend stocks target!

Our entire account is down -6.20% underperforming our projections and the market.

Our options trading averaged $4,258.00 per month this year. If this trend continues, we are on track to make $51,096.00 trading options in 2022. As of today, we have made $4,258.00 trading options.

Old SPX trades repair


This week, we didn’t adjust our old SPX trades. Our goal is to reach a level where we will be eligible for portfolio margin (PM). Once that happens, we plan on converting the existing SPX Iron Condors to strangles and trade these positions as strangles.

With RegT margin, the capital requirements would be approx. $66,586.06 and that is beyond our means. With PM the requirement for margin would drop to around $10k. That is doable in our account. Once we reach this level, we will start adjusting our SPX trades accordingly. Until then, we will just roll these trades around.

We however traded our SPX put credit spread strategy which you will be able to review in my next report.


Market Outlook


The stock market continued to struggle with the trend. It failed to go higher and continued being pressured down by interest rate fear when tech stocks were selling off. But we had a few bright moments in the market trend when the buyers stepped in and bought a fairly large morning selloff. On both occasions, the market closed in green. I expect the market to stabilize and move higher propped by earnings, given that the earnings reports will be good and companies also provide positive guidance. If not, more selling may come.
