  KRAFT FOODS INC  (KFT) - 2008
ONGOING EVALUATION & TRADE
This is a non-retirement account. I am selling naked puts against the stock.
This trade started in October 2008 and by June 2010 I had made enough income to pay for 500 shares of Kraft. Rather than accept assignment I am continuing to sell naked puts until eventually assigned as Kraft remains in a tight trading range making the selling of options viable. The goal was to own shares of Kraft through other people's capital. This goal has been realized. The objective now is to add to that income until eventually assigned shares.

ONGOING STRATEGY - SELLING NAKED PUTS UNTIL ASSIGNED

Oct 6 2008  Someone might ask WHY KRAFT? Here we are in the midst of a market meltdown and I am looking at Kraft? Why not run to the hills! Well it's all in the range. Kraft has been stuck in the range of $28 to around $31.00 for literally months. Ranges are what I look for when selling naked puts. I want to own shares of Kraft, but not until I have made enough capital through selling naked puts. Stocks stuck in a range are much easier to select strike prices from than those that travel wider ranges.
