Portfolio Update 4/24/2013

In the postscript section of my Sunday, April 21st post (NYSEARCA:PST), (the date stamp of the post shows midnight April 22nd Eastern Standard Time) I had said that I was going to buy CALL options in MEMC Electronic Materials, Inc. (WFR) the following day (Monday)...I wish I had followed through and done what I had said I would...because had I bought those CALLS on Monday, I would have paid approximately 33% less than the price I forked out yesterday for those same CALLS...because, in the early part of the day on Monday, WFR stock was actually down as much as 16¢, before closing up 9¢ for the day and I could have purchased these very options for around 36¢ as opposed to the 50¢ that I paid yesterday... :-( Unfortunately, my Options2Wealth portfolio has to play second fiddle to my primary focus and passion: my day job of running my start-up and I run this portfolio more as a fun hobby...

In any case, this initial purchase consisted of only 100 contracts of WFR's July $5.00CALLS @ 50¢...in the long run, it will be irrelevant what my initial entry price is because I expect these CALLS to pay me handsome dividends before their expiry in July...

I still have some cash left and will be adding to it today after I completely exit out of my remaining 100 fat and juicy Sprint CALL contracts. I plan to deploy that cash into either WFR or GTAT CALL contracts...The markets are about to open, so I will come back and complete this post...

EDIT:

Today, as per plan, I sold my remaining 100 CALL contracts of Sprint @ $1.08 and bought an additional 100 contracts of WFR CALLS, Strike Price $5.00 @ $0.54...Various screen shots, including the most current summary of the portfolio's holdings in an Excel spreadsheet is provided below:
