    Hi Teddi,

    I love your blog and love your trading strategy. How do I know how much money you have made in 2011 for each stock in your USA portfolio? Is the income earned to date listed for 2011 only or since 2009 when you started this portfolio?

    Barbara

  • Hi Barbara
    I am glad you are enjoying my site. If you go to each stock, you can select the year and the totals for each year are listed with each stock.
    For example, if you go to Kraft trade you will see the various years listed. I then list capital earned each year and also the total of all capital earned to date (which naturally is all the capital from each year added together).
    Take care
    Teddi

    The total value of puts does not add up to $578k (Total Capital In Use). What am I not understanding?

    Thank you.

  • Total capital in use is the total amount of capital I would require if all the sold puts were assigned to me plus any shares I am presently holding such as the Nucor stock. To understand look at each trade within the US portfolio. Each list the amount of capital in use, meaning how much capital would be needed if I was assigned puts or to cover the cost of the shares being held.
    Total capital in use fluctuates constantly depending on the positions being held and how much capital would be required to cover all put positions in the event they were assigned to me.
    If you add up the capital being committed to each trade they will add up to the total capital in use.
    For those who have not done put selling before it may seem hard to understand. Basically if I sell a put and the stock fell to below my put strike I can be assigned shares. To pay for those shares I need capital. Therefore this is the capital in use. Every time a put trade closes the total capital in use changes. Each time a new trade is commenced the total capital in use changes again.
    Hope this helps you out.

  • Thank you for your comments. Presently I am holding no shares in my US Portfolio. I was holding Nucor shares for a short while this fall, but they were exercised on Dec 28. I am presently only holding a lot of sold puts.

    I love your site and I am trying to learn as much as I can. I have felt at various times in the past year or so that I am in sync but then you put up a new post with another wrinkle to appreciate. I have done very well with covered calls and I’m getting much more into put selling. So far I have learned well from you. And this review of 2011 was terrific.
    One request. Your put selling and CC writing on Canadian stocks would be very welcome. I did quite well with Scotia puts after your post and have been interested in Canadian stocks for a couple of years.
    I fully understand that you are spending a great deal of time on your site. If you can put the Canadian stocks it will be greatly appreciated.
    By the way we are probably fairly close in age, and since I am retired I really appreciate the more interesting and yet conservative approach to investing you lay out.

  • Hi Jim
