2022 Week 48 investing and trading report

November 2022 is over, and it has been a good month so far. I can’t say that for the 2022 year. The year was bad. The account is down by 35%, and I do not expect it to improve much by the end of the year. But I am not bitter about it or feel bad. I increased my investments beyond my dreams, knowing these investments would pay off when the market improved again. Another headwind to our portfolio is the open options trades that keep the net-liq down (partially also thanks to my broker, who is incapable of keeping it straight). But that is about to change as well.

Our NetLiq-cash-buying power ratio is improving:

Cash - Net-Liq - BP 48

Our trading delivered $818.00 premiums last week, ending November 2022, at $3,555.00 (5.26%) options income. Our net-liq value increased by 0.86% to $67,626.73 value. That is still a terrible result but improving. Our overall account is now down -35.37% YTD.

Dividend Investing and Trading Report

Last week we have received $143.49 in dividends bringing our November’s dividend income at $723.16.

Last week, we bought these dividend growth stocks:

– 88 shares of MAIN @ $38.32
I now own 100 shares and started selling covered calls against this position.

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 purchased no growth stocks.


I started saving cash in the ICSH fund again to raise it to a 60% / 40% cash level.

Options Investing and Trading Report


Last week options trading delivered a gain of $818.00 making our November options income $3,555.00.


We were actively trading our SPX strategy that delivered +$135.00 gain.


Expected Future Dividend Income

We received $143.49 in dividends last week. Our portfolio currently yields 5.37% at $67,626.73 market value.

Our projected annual dividend income in 10 years is $134,372.70, 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 $7,326.83 annual dividend income ($610.57 monthly income). We are 5.45% of our 10 year goal of $134,372.70 dividend income.

Future Divi on YOC week 48

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 $192,304.47 to $203,074.86 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.

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 5.26% monthly ROI in November 2022, totaling a 93.78% ROI YTD. We will exceed our 45% annual revenue goal in selling options against dividend stocks.

Our entire account is still down -35.37%.

Our options trading averaged $5,285.25 per month this year. If this trend continues, we will make $63,423.00 in trading options in 2022. As of today, we have made $63,423.00 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.

Account Net-Liq


TW Account trading Net-Liq week 48

This drawdown of our account is extremely discouraging. It’s like all previous gains were all wiped out. But this is just a temporary drawdown. I am not selling any stock positions despite the losses. I will keep buying more shares if possible. I also have losses in my options trades. I am rolling those trades to keep them alive and adjusting them slowly, one by one, until they expire as winners. Then, this terribly-looking chart improves. It will be a long process to get back up, but I am determined.

Account Stocks holding

TW Account holdings week 48

Last week, S&P 500 grew 40.76% since we opened our portfolio while our portfolio grew 15.80%. On YTD basis, the S&P 500 fell -24.01% and our portfolio -13.98%. We are outperforming the market.

The numbers above apply to our stock holdings only.

Stock holdings Growth YTD

TW Account holdings Growth YTD

Our stock holdings are starting to outperform the market. Hopefully, this trend will stay, and we will constantly do better than S&P 500.

Our 10-year goal is to grow this account to $1,000,000.00 value in ten years. We are in year two, and we accomplished 6.76% of that goal.

Our 6-year goal is to reach $175,000 account value to be eligible for portfolio margin (PM), and today we accomplished 38.64% of that goal.

Our 2022 year goal is to grow this account to a $151,638.03, and today we accomplished 44.60% of this goal.

I am afraid our account is no longer on track to accomplish our 2022 year goal. We may accomplish our dividend and options income goals, but our account balance (Net-Liq) will be down significantly. Of course, if the market finally rallies by the end of the year, it may all change, but if not, we will fail.

  1. Great report! On your options strategy, do you mostly sell covered calls against the positions you have. I’m looking to start selling covered calls and wondered if it can be a good income stream. Thanks for sharing!

      I sell covered calls against positions but also spreads and strangles. And I use stocks that I don’t mind owning, so I create a wheel strategy.
