Weekly Purchases - 4/24/16

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Weekly Update

Over the last several weeks I have been making some major changes to my holdings under the hood.  I want to start focusing on building positions to round 100 share lots within a single account so I can write covered calls against some of my positions.  So you will see a lot of sells on my completed trades page.  I am trying to organized my positions to be larger within a single account.

One additional change I will be making going forward is to include my covered call and cash covered put premiums within my monthly reported income.  I wont add the income until the trade has been completed by either, expiring worthless, buying it back, or being exercised.  So although I have 4 option trades that I initiated below this month, I will not report the income until closer to expiration.

I Bought:
