2022 Week 40 investing and trading report

Last week when the market rallied my account recovered and it went from $52k to over $65k in a day. Then it crashed and I am pretty much back where I started. Because of this extreme volatility and bearishness out there, I didn’t do too much trading last week. But I was buying the SPXL fund as I think this is the right thing to do. When the market goes down, I am buying this 3x leveraged ETF, and once the market recovers, I will be trimming that position. And, on top of that, I am selling covered calls.

I still struggle with cash and buying power. It is difficult to stay afloat. Many times during this bear market, it was the options dragging my account down, now my stocks joined the party and drag the account down too.

Cash - Net-Liq - BP 40

I didn’t trade much last week, only one covered call. That trading delivered +$54.00 premiums last week ending October 2022 at +$54.00 (+0.10%) options income. Our net-liq value increased by 4.36% to $54,372.41 value. That is still a terrible result. Our overall account is now down -48.04% YTD.

Dividend Investing and Trading Report

Last week we have received $66.10 in dividends bringing our October’s dividend income at $66.10.

Last week, we bought these dividend growth stocks:

– 2 shares of COST @ $490.46
I plan on accumulating Costco shares and this is my initial investment. I will be slowly adding more shares in the near future until I reach 100 shares.


Here is a chart of our account equity showing our accumulation goal and the value of all stocks in our account. It shows a nice upward-sloping chart as our equities grow. This is a result of our options trading and using premiums to buy dividend stocks:

And here you can see the dividend income those equities pay us every year:

Growth stocks Investing and Trading Report


Last week, we bought the following growth stocks and funds:

  • 35 shares of SPXL @ $62.60
    I accumulated 200 shares of this ETF and started selling another covered call contract. I believe, accumulating this 3x leveraged ETF during this bear market is a great opportunity that will pay big in a recovery.


Options Investing and Trading Report

Last week I was not trading options much. I only opened one covered call against SPXL. The call was with Friday’s expiration and it expired for a full profit. Next week I will reopen the position.

That trade delivered a gain of +$54.00 making our October options income +$54.00.


We were actively trading our SPX strategy that delivered -$85.00 loss.


Expected Future Dividend Income

We received $66.10 in dividends last week. Our portfolio currently yields 6.26% at $54,372.41 market value.

Our projected annual dividend income in 10 years is $93,721.93, but that projection is if we do absolutely nothing and let our positions grow without adding new positions or reinvesting the dividends.

We are also set to receive a $6,676.00 annual dividend income ($556.33 monthly income). We are 7.12% of our 10 year goal of $93,721.93 dividend income.

Future Divi on YOC week 40

The chart above shows how our future dividend income is based on the future yield on cost and what dividend income we may expect. The expected dividend growth depends on what stocks we add 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 $144,907.47 to $155,598.37 last week.

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

Stock holdings trading week 40

We aim to accumulate 100 shares of dividend growth stocks we like 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 +0.10% monthly ROI in October 2022, totaling a 103.60% ROI YTD. If our options income stays at this level by the end of the year, we will exceed our 45% annual revenue goal in selling options against dividend stocks.

Our entire account is still down -48.04%.

Our options trading averaged $5,632.90 per month this year. If this trend continues, we will make $67,594.80 trading options in 2022. As of today, we have made $56,329.00 trading options.

Old SPX trades repair


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