With the current market volatility, I've decide to stick with these sector ETF's rather than individual stocks for now. I'm trying a new strategy of laddering Case Secured Puts (CSP) at lower strikes with expirations that are 1 week apart. Each week, as each one expires, I'll add another rung on the ladder.

With the market unstable due to COVID-19, I've decided to look at the S&P sector ETF's for opportunities, rather than my usual dividend stocks. I'm a bit hesitant to jump into any individual stocks at this moment, so these ETF's provide a good alternative. Checking the Sector Tracker I see that the following sectors have faired pretty well during this downturn, so I established CSP's in all 4.

  • Consumer Staples (XLP)
  • Health Care (XLV)
  • Technology (XLK)
  • Utilities (XLU)
