4/10/22 – I may have gotten too cute with Realty Income trying to get the current dividend on 100 shares, but looking at the chart, there is decent resistance around $72.00, so we’ll see what happens!

4/12/2022 – Another weekly Intel put as I see a lot of indecision around the $47.00 price range. I would be happy being “stuck” with 100 INTC at $47, should it fall much further. If assigned, I will be selling a covered call next week.

4/16/22 – The Realty Income (O) and Intel (INTC) options both expired in the money and were called away and assigned accordingly. I will sell a cash secured put on Realty Income to hopefully get those back before the ex dividend date at the end of April and I’ll sell a covered call on Intel greater than the next dividend payment.

4/19/22 – Looking to get out of Intel quick, I sold a $47 call when the price was around $46.90, and it just exploded up to over $48 shortly afterwards. I wanted to at least get their next dividend (36.50, plus a little more for taxes). At least there will be no capital gains tax to pay on the shares that had been assigned to me at $47 last week.

4/20/22 – The closest Realty Income put I could write to get my cash back is about 30 days away. So, I wrote a PUT option for a company I’d be ok getting “stuck” with at $80 – Starbucks (SBUX). We’ll see Starbucks can hold $80 by Friday afternoon!

4/24/22 – The market was hit hard on Friday 4/22, so I was able to hang onto the Intel shares, but was assigned the Starbucks shares at $77.92. I now intend to sell covered calls on those Intel & Starbucks shares when we see a green day.

5/9/22 – The stock market continues to slide, which is fantastic for long minded investors buying solid businesses and especially dividend investors. The only downside in a falling market is selling covered calls as the premiums dry up. This is why I love solid dividend stocks – I’ll be paid to wait until the market finds a floor and starts to come up once again.

5/16/2022 – My first covered call on PepsiCo, and I’m being “kind of” conservative here. The All Time High (ATH) is $176.30, so I’m betting that we won’t see that broken and push through $180 by Friday (5/20). $40 isn’t world beating, but my plan is to shoot for $20 to $50 a week in option income from PepsiCo.
