COPA Holdings: Investing In Emerging Markets

If you follow my blog you know that I occasionally take chances on stocks that others avoid. My latest purchase of Copa Holdings (CPA) is one of those purchases. I have been watching Copa Holdings for a year or so. I've wanted to add CPA stock to my portfolio but it has been overvalued. The past 12-months have been rocky for Copa Holdings. CPA stock is down to $84.96, which is more than 52% lower than its 52-week high of $157.98. I see a buying opportunity. I sold a cash secured put on Copa Holdings at $85 which generated instant $90.29 profit. I didn't expect Copa to fall below $85, but it did which is just fine with me, because I only sell puts on those stocks I am willing to own. The assigned put sent 100 shares to me at a cost basis of $84.09 per share. This stock purchase will add $336 dollars to my annual dividend income. Copa Holdings is latest addition to my Dividend Dreams Fund.
