July 2015 Portfolio

Month of July

Finally the month of July is passing. Hopefully, it brings with it the Greece debt crisis. Portfolio was also affected by the volatile markets and hence there was a loss in the future options department. On another note, the earnings are coming up from many companies and it is time to strike on the Earnings game (only if there are good deals).
We did manage to get a good double digit for the BTO released in May and with it, comes much more options to choose from compared with the previous BTO selection.


Stocks 

1 of the options that I sold was assigned during the Greek Crisis. But I realized that I do not like to be holding that position and decided to exit. That stock was AT&T (Ticker: T). Given the circumstances (and earnings coming up), I was assigned to purchase T at $35 and I chose to sell it back to the market at $35. The only profit was about $20 because of the premium received. It does not show below as the date of this report is only until Jul 16 and the sale was made on Jul 17. Hence you will see it gone in next month’s report.

Options on Futures 


I was only talking about losses on the last monthly update and Greece and China had to make the situation worse. The markets were more volatile during the debt crisis and intermittently disrupted the commodities.

The net effect of July was negative as I ended up closing multiple positions at a loss. I still have contracts for Crude Oil, E-Mini S&P, Gold, Natural Gas and Corn set to expire in the next 1-3 months as of this writing.

End 2015
$4,443.00

The overall cash profit since Jul-14 was 87.85% and YTD was 36.48%. This number is derived from the cash statement of my brokers. Of course it should be said that it includes money in the escrow account which the broker will return to me when the option expires.
