Upon Aug2011 options expiration, twelve covered calls positions in the Covered Calls Advisor Portfolio (CCAP) expired. Today, a decision was made to re-establish covered calls positions for three equities (General Motors Co., iShares MSCI China ETF, and iShares MSCI South Korea ETF) with Sep2011 expirations. The detailed transactions history for these positions as well as possible results for these investments are as follows:

1. General Motors Co.(GM) -- Continuation

08/29/2011 Sold 3 GM Sept02,2011 $24.00 Calls @$.25
Note: The price of GM was $23.43 when these call options were sold.

Two possible overall performance results(including commissions) for the General Motors transactions are as follows:

Stock Purchase Cost: $8,804.95
= ($29.32*300+$8.95 commission)

(a) Options Income: +$289.60
= ($.79+$.25)*300 shares - 2*$11.20 commissions
(b) Dividend Income: +$0.00
(c) Capital Appreciation (If stock price unchanged at $23.43): -$1,775.95

(c) Capital Appreciation (If GM above $24.00 at Sept02,2011 expiration): -$1,596.95
+($24.00-$29.32)*300 - $8.95 commissions

Total Net Profit(If stock price above $24.00 at Sept02,2011 options expiration): -$1,307.35 = (+$289.60 +$0.00 -$1,596.95)

-14.8% = -$1,307.35/$8,804.95
