(a) Options Income: +$936.75
= ($3.13*300 shares) - $2.25 commissions
(b) Dividend Income: +$171.00 = $.57 * 300 shares
(c) Capital Appreciation (AAPL closed above $110.00 strike price at Nov2016 expiration): -$775.95
= ($110.00-$112.56)*300 shares - $7.95 commissions
Total Net Profit (AAPL closed above $110.00 strike price at Nov2016 options expiration): +$331.80
= (+$936.75 options income +$171.00 dividends -$775.95 capital appreciation)
Absolute Return: +1.0%
Annualized Return: +19.9%
= (+$331.80/$33,775.95)*(365/18 days)

11/18/2016 Alibaba Puts expired with price of stock above the $90 strike price
Note: the price of BABA was $93.39 at Nov2016 options expiration.
The performance result (including commissions) was as follows:

(a) Options Income: +$144.55
= ($.77 * 200 shares) - $9.45 commissions
(b) Dividend Income: +$0.00
(c) Capital Appreciation (BABA closed above $90.00 strike price at Nov2016 expiration): +$0.00
= ($90.00 -$90.00)*200 shares
Total Net Profit: +$144.55
= (+$144.55 options income +$0.00 dividend income +$0.00 capital appreciation)
Absolute Return: +0.8%
Annualized Return: +36.6%
= (+$144.55/$18,000.00)*(365/8 days)

The four positions that ended at Nov2016 options expiration with the price of the stock below the strike price were Agnico Eagle Mines (500 shares), Alibaba Group (400 shares), Facebook (300 shares), and Hanes Brands (1,000 shares).
