To finance this purchase we spent half of our options income in the month of November, see November 2020 Options Income Report - $1,479.6
We now hold in total 35 shares of O, In total, they contribute about $82.11 (after tax) yearly to our dividend income portfolio.

If we had 100 shares of O today, we could sell December 18, 2020, covered call (monthly options) with a strike price of $62.5, to get a $0.65 premium. In case our shares would get called away on the expiry date we would realize $232 income in 17 days, that's a potential return of 3.71% since we started buying O.
It's planned to buy more O shares once a month until we will reach 100 shares. It looks like we might get there around June or July 2021.
65 shares to go!
