2022 Week 13 investing and trading report

Our trading performed well last week as our account grew again and our options trading recovered some of the previous losses. Yet we finished March 2022 down as far as options income goes (we were rolling some trades for debit and closing some trades last month to reduce risk. We are slowly returning to add the risk back on.

Dividend Investing and Trading Report

Last week we have received $124.05 in dividends bringing March’s dividend income to $393.74.

Last week, we have not purchased any dividend stock.


We have closed our position in CMDY and COP as oil is going down (and after the UD administration announced that the US would dump oil to the market from strategic reserves to lower the cost for the consumers, oil tanked hard. So I had good timing (but do not worry, it was pure luck). So we made small money in those positions.

Here you can see our dividend income per stock holding:

Growth stocks Investing and Trading Report


Last week we bought the following growth stocks and funds:

– 5 shares of SPXL @ $125.18


Options Investing and Trading Report

Last week we rolled our strangle trades to keep our account safe.

These adjustments delivered income of $952.00 lowering our March total loss to -$1,662.00.


We were actively trading our SPX strategy that delivered $565.00 gain.

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 $124.05 in dividends last week. Our portfolio currently yields 5.51% at $112,825.63 market value.

Our projected annual dividend income in 10 years is $32,406.44 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 $5,676.40 annual dividend income ($473.03 monthly income). We are 17.52% of our 10 year goal of $32,406.44 dividend income.

Future Divi on YOC week 13

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 increased from $152,482.70 to $154,449.47 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 trading week 13

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 planned on reinvesting all dividends back into those holdings.

Investing and trading ROI


Our options trading delivered a -1.47% monthly ROI in March 2022, totaling a 15.30% ROI YTD. We hope that in 2022 we exceed our 45% annual revenue selling options against dividend stocks target, although as of today, we are getting behind this goal.

Our entire account is up +7.82%.

Our options trading averaged $4,316.75 per month this year. If this trend continues, we are on track to make $51,801.00 trading options in 2022. As of today, we have made $17,267.00 trading options.

Old SPX trades repair


Last week we have adjusted one of our old trades rolling it more into the future. Now we have to trade. Now we will be waiting.

We however traded our SPX put credit spread strategy which you will be able to review in my next report. The SPX strategy held well so far, and our signals kept us away from opening new trades.


Market Outlook


The stock market pulled back off of the recent rally which was something I expected to happen. The rally was very strong and there were no pullbacks. It was due to get one. Based on historical data and past market behavior I expect the rally to resume.

The stock market provided a few rare bullish signals despite all the yield curve, inflation, and recession fear out there. You have to remember that the markets do not produce signals on their own, those signals were generated by the investors and traders. That indicates, that despite all the fear-mongering from the talking heads and investors on social media, these market participants ignored the fear and behaved in such a manner that the market triggered bullish signals. All the information about the yield curve, inflation, war in Ukraine, and looming recession is well-known information. It has been known for weeks and months now. Today’s investors know all these risks. If these same investors were scared and afraid of the yield curve, inflation, recession, and war, they wouldn’t be buying.
