Continuation Transactions -- Six Positions

There are currently eleven holdings in the Covered Calls Advisor Portfolio. Covered calls with Jan2012 expirations were established previously for four of these holdings. Today, covered calls have been re-established on six holdings (Halliburton Co., iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF, iShares MSCI South Korea ETF, iShares MSCI Taiwan ETF, Peabody Energy Corp., and Valero Energy Corp.).

The sole remaining holding that remains unhedged is Apple Inc. The Covered Calls Advisor is expecting Apple to report quarterly earnings numbers on January 24th that are well above analysts' consensus estimates. Therefore call options will not be sold against Apple stock until after this announcement.

The detailed transactions history for the six covered calls positions established today as well as possible performance results are as follows:
