    Anyone looking at this strategy for 2015? With investors chasing yield some of the high yielding stocks could be worth looking at for some cash secured puts on the long term portion of your portfolio.

    Top 5 yielding stocks are:
    AT&T - 5.51%
    Verizon Communications - 4.69%
    Chevron - 3.91%
    General Electric - 3.66%
    Pfizer - 3.57%

    With the special dividend it has paid the last two years CME is yielding over 4% too.

    Gavin: Did you ever get to implement this strategy? Just curious to find the results....

    With the recent sell-off it may be interesting strategy to revisit.
    ATT - 5.68%
    VZ - 5.06
    CVX - 5.35
    GE - 3.24 (down?)
    PFE - 3.85

    Energy companies are good yielders if you think the sell-off is overdone.
    Also XOM is now 3.97%
    COP - 7.41

    DOW 2017:

    Dow hits 20,000 for first time ever

    After weeks of close calls, the Dow made history on Wednesday by blowing past that key level for the first time ever. The Dow climbed 156 points to 20,069 and was joined in record territory by the S&P 500 and Nasdaq.

    So far in 2017, Visa Inc. (NYSE:V) has seen its shares rise by about 4.8%. Although Visa is at the top of the list for 2017, it was closer to the bottom for 2016, despite posting a gain last year. Looking ahead, Visa has partnered with PayPal to take on Google Wallet and Apple Pay.

    Nike Inc. (NKE) shares have risen by just over 4% in the New Year. Nike has the worst performing Dow stock in 2016, but it seems that things are turning around. Athleisure trends are picking up for now, but international concerns with what the Trump administration has in store are clouding up the crystal ball.
