On Friday File: Stop Losses Everywhere, But so Much I ALMOST Want to Buy
re: stop losses/buy limits. Like most of the rest of you, I have my own personal investment philosophy on stop losses and buy limit positions, often on the same investments. I GENERALLY adhere to a 10-20% trailing stop on about 75% of my portfolio, with[...]

On "Greatest Medical Breakthrough in History" from Paul Mampilly
Over the past 30+years I have subscribed to dozens of entry level services in the hope that I could glean a little bit of knowledge about investing in different areas of the market. I have followed many different strategies and recos, with mixed results, [...]
On What's the "Tiny $6 Million Company" with a "Stunning Patent Verdict?"
Did not buy to close yesterday. I'm greedy, which ain't necessarily a good thing, but I don't believe it will come back down to the strike price. I expect to realize the full $6400.00 profit at expiration in 4-1/2 weeks. I know that EDIT's price dropped[...]
On What's the "Tiny $6 Million Company" with a "Stunning Patent Verdict?"
Strike price was $17.50 on August 4. Sorry, I thought I put that in my previous comment. It's probably too late for this trade now. Just wait for the next Radical Technology recommendation and so the same thing. IMHO, that's all the newsletter is good [...]
On What's the "Tiny $6 Million Company" with a "Stunning Patent Verdict?"
An alternative some of you might consider. I have no faith in Radical Technology Profits recommendations, except that they will drive the price up when they publish a new stock. I sold 40 9/15/17 puts at $1.60 on August 4, and as of the close today they[...]
On Friday File: Interest Rates, REITs, Bitcoin and Berkshire
Regarding REITs, I would be interested in other opinions on the three that I own. All have been very good investments thus far for me. APTS, purchased in November/2014 at $8.73 has more than doubled with dividends reinvested (current YOC is 10.2%). NRZ,[...]

Correction: I bought APTS in Nov. 2014.[...]
On "On September 16, some 100 billion dollars could begin to flow into one sector of the market..."
If you're looking for other alternatives, look at NRZ and APTS. NRZ is currently paying $1.84 a year (about 13%), and APTS is paying $.81 a year (about 5.85%). I bought NRZ in March, 2016 at $11.90 (current price is $14.11, so my YOC is 6.81%. I bought [...]
On Microblog: Radical Tech Profits teaser for the "Little Black Box"
I'm a 71 year-old retiree, and around 80% of my investments are in income producing assets. The other 20% I dedicate to somewhat speculative positions. Most of that is in precious metals, commodities, and energy. Basically, I'm out of my element when it[...]
On Microblog: Little black box
You're certainly a better man/woman than I. Can't figure it out, and am not willing to spend $1950.00 (save @3000.00 off regular price) to get the name. HELP!!![...]

On "The Greatest Leap of Mankind... Unlimited FREE Energy" (Dr. Kent Moors' Picks Revealed)
Ho Hum, another big drop for SUNE. Another 40 puts (Jan 22 expiration) for $3.00 @ .37 for a return of $1,455.00. If this one happens to fill, I will own 4000 shares @ a total cost of $5,700.00, or a cost per share of $1.43 if you take into account the O[...]
On "The Greatest Leap of Mankind... Unlimited FREE Energy" (Dr. Kent Moors' Picks Revealed)
SUNE has been a very profitable stock for me because of the volatility it has exhibited. I have sold puts (40) twice at $3.00, and once at $2.50 in the past 3 months, and all have expired worthless, giving me a net profit of $4,845.00. I will continue th[...]
