No Weekend Portfolio Analysis for July 7

Hey folks,

A personal unforeseen event has taken place that forced me to travel unexpectedly. So, there will not be a Weekend Portfolio article this weekend.

Still, I didn't want to leave without at least talking briefly about the current portfolio.


Two positions in August and one in July.
None of the existing positions is in danger.

The action plan for the upcoming week is to just baby-sit all three positions. No plan to enter anything new.

Cheers,
LT

Enhanced Investing results halfway through the year

In 2018 I started to more regularly:

- Sell Puts on companies I'd like to own at better valuations, not intending to adjust or anything. If a Put becomes In the Money at expiration, I'm happy getting assigned the shares. If such fall doesn't take place, I'm happy locking the credit received from the Put contract and re-deploying.

- Sell Out of the Money Calls on stocks I own. This reduces maximum upside potential, but generates income every month during sideways, down and even limited upside market action.

- Collect dividends on the companies owned.

- Initiated an August SPX Elephant position on Monday obtaining a $1,585 credit. Only added a Call hedge and no Put hedge as volatility was pretty elevated.
