Wrap Up

The total amount of dividends and options premium received this week was $97.78 which all came from dividends. This week was a slow week for options trading. Next week will be more active since I had some cover calls expire out of the money. I will wait until after earnings to write covered calls on VZ and T. That about wraps it up for this week. Thanks for following along!
