    Jan 3, 2013 1:01 AM | about stocks: FSLR, S, SPWR, SUNE

    Here is the breakdown of the final purchases:

    Available cash balances from my original allocations:

    Sprint Nextel: (S): $750

    SunPower (SPWR): $2,034

    MEMC Electronic Materials (WFR): $1,274

    Sprint (S): I used the $750 balance to purchase the following:

    Bought 50 CALL contracts May 18, 2013, $6.00 Strike Price @$0.14 at a cost of $700 + $48 (Commissions) = $748 Balance = $2 Cash

    SunPower (SPWR): I used the $2,034 balance to purchase the following:

    Bought 32 CALL contracts March 16, 2013, $6.00 Strike Price,

    @ $0.61 at a cost of $1,952 + $35 (Commissions) = $1,987 ;

    Balance = $47 Cash

    MEMC Electronic Materials (WFR): I used the $1,274 balance to purchase the following:

    Bought 27 CALL contracts April 20, 2013, $3.50 Strike Price,

    @ $0.45 at a cost of $1,215 + $31 (Commissions) = $1,246 ;

    Balance = $28 Cash

    Final Remaining Cash Balance: $2,000 + $2 (From Sprint) + $47 (From SunPower) + $28 (From MEMC) = $2,077

    I will wait to find a compelling opportunity to put my cash balance to work...
