Enhanced Investing when things go wrong

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On April 10 of this year (2019), I was assigned 100 shares of CVS at a price of $60 per share. The Short April Put , strike 60, that caused this assignment had been originally sold for a $62 credit.

Ideally when an assignment happens, the price of the stock will be near your short option strike price, so that your open losses don’t look ugly. More importantly so that you can sell Out of the Money Calls that not only give you additional credit, but which are also above your shares assignment price, so that you can make capital gains too on a rebound of the stock.

Leveraged Portfolio - Results half-way into 2019

With another good quarter we have arrived at the half of the year mark and the Leveraged Portfolio has been a nice surprise, up +34.4% so far. If last year all three components in the portfolio didn't seem to find a way to go up, this year it has been the other way around and all three vehicles have gone up nicely.
