Dividends, Investing and Options Trading for the Week Ending 5/29/21

Another week has gone by so it is time to take a look at my progress. Sometimes I still have trouble believing the progress I have made over the past year and half. I think I am doing pretty good for a guy who works full time in factory and is still learning about investing and the stock market. There was not a whole lot of activity in the accounts this week. Let’s check out the details below.

Dividends

This week I received the following dividends in the Roth IRA:

  • Credit Suisse X-Links Silver Shares Covered Call ETN (SLVO) – $0.05

This week I received the following dividends in the Traditional IRA:

  • Fidelity Government Money Market (SPAXX) – $0.01
  • Citigroup Inc. (C) – $5.70

The combined income from dividends this week was $5.76. The dividend from SLVO was automatically reinvested into SLVO. The other dividends will be reinvested into other positions.

Buys/Sells

The only buy this week was in the Traditional IRA:

  • Kroger (KR) – purchased 7 shares.

There were no other buys or sells in the accounts this week.

Options Trading

The following was the options trading activity for the week:

  • Verizon (VZ) – sold a covered call at a strike price of $60 expiring on June 18, 2021 for a premium of $14.31 after fees.
  • United Microelectronics (UMC) – sold a covered call at a strike price of $12.50 expiring on June 18, 2021 for a premium of $4.71 after fees.
  • AT&T (T) – sold a covered call at a strike price of $32 expiring on June 18, 2021 for a premium of $9.46 after fees.
  • Organigram Holdings (OGI) – sold a covered call at a strike price of $4 expiring on July 16, 2021 for a premium of $4.71 after fees.

The total options premium received this week was $33.19.

Account Updates

The Traditional IRA finished the week at $115,301 which is up $406 over the previous week.

The 401k finished the week at $7,316 which is up $86 over the previous week.

The Roth IRA finished the week at $544 which is up $7 over the previous week.

The taxable growth account finished the week at about $237 which is up about $10 over the previous week. You can check out the positions in this account here: https://m1.finance/te1-XieeLi4C .

The total amount invested across all accounts is $123,398. Overall, this puts the accounts up $509 over the previous week.

Wrap Up

The combined income from dividends and options premium this week was $38.95. It was another slow week for generating income in the accounts. All of the accounts were up this week which is nice to see for a change. That about wraps it up for the week. Thanks for reading!
