Thank you very much, Jim! I always appreciate your advice and have
benefited a lot from it.

I have a relatively nice tax situation in Hong
Kong - no capital gains, dividend or interest income taxes (more
specifically, individual income taxes are only imposed on explicitly
earned income). I therefore try to pay attention to taxes to other
countries while investing.

Singapore is an option I have not considered much while investing in
dividend stocks and is something I should probably explore. I have a few
Brazil stocks (BSBR, VALE) but never managed to understand the dividend
taxation in my Ameritrade account. Most of the dividend seems to be taxed
at 15% but some part is left untaxed. I never got around to figuring it
out as the amounts involved are quite small.

I have used the put writing strategy (inspired by your posts but
probably implemented in a different manner) but usually do so close to
ATM - deep ITM would indeed essentially be owning the stock. How often
would you roll over the puts? (I now use interactive brokers for my
options.)
