Latest Addition to Stock Portfolio: 2 AMZN shares at $125.62

| Investments | 6 seen

On October 5, 2023, I bought an additional 2 shares of Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) stock, paying $125.62 per share for our long-term dividend stock portfolio.

Amazon.com, Inc. is an American multinational technology company focusing on e-commerce, cloud computing, online advertising, digital streaming, and artificial intelligence.

We are now holding 40 shares of AMZN in our stock portfolio. 

Using dollar-cost averaging our average cost per AMZN share is $115.09

AMZN stock price as on October 5, 2023

60 shares to go once we are able to start selling covered calls and generate extra income from AMZN stock. At the current investment speed (2 shares per month) we could get there in the next 30 months or around April 2026. 

If we had 100 shares of AMZN today, we could sell November 10, 2023, covered call (36 days to expiry) with a strike price of $130, to get a $4.5 premium. In case our shares would get called away on expiry we would realize $1,941 in income from our total investment.

If our options would expire worthlessly, we would simply pocket $450, or about 3.9%, and start over by writing additional call options.

To speed things up, I have started already selling options on Amazon stock.

At the moment I'm holding 1 call option with a November 17, 2023 expiry and the strike price of 150

For example, with AMZN expiring at $160 (10 dollars above my strike price) I would be left with:

100*150-40*115.09-60*160=$796.4

So far, since February 6th, 2023 we have already earned about $700 from selling options on our existing position. $700 on 40 shares equals about $17.5 per share. 

I hope to reach 100 shares of AMZN in the portfolio and look that at least 15 shares would be bought from the capital earned from selling options premium.
