Upon Nov2011 options expiration, eleven of the thirteen total covered calls positions in the Covered Calls Advisor Portfolio (CCAP) expired.

The detailed transactions history for these positions as well as possible results for these investments are as follows:

1. Citigroup Inc.(C) -- Continuation

Two possible overall performance results(including commissions) for this Citigroup, Inc.(C) position would be as follows:
100% Cash-Secured Cost Basis: $9,300.00

= ($1.96 + $1.09) *300 shares - 2*$11.20 commissions
(b) Dividend Income: +$0.00
(c) Capital Appreciation (If stock price unchanged at $26.61): -$1,325.95

-$1,191.05
= ($27.00-$31.00) -$8.95 commissions

Total Net Profit(If stock price above $27.00 at Dec2011 options expiration): -$298.45
