Hi everyone, I am a brand new irregular, very much impressed by the rich content of this site, Travis’ contributions and the lively discussions in the community. This is my first post. I consider myself a long-term investor, not a trader, who is using options to build-up stock positions and manage risk. Fifteen years ago, […]

I don’t know what’s going to happen to interest rates, taxes, GDP growth or the stock market, all of which are intertwined, but right now the sentiment expressed by the market seems still to be vaccine-driven optimism about economic recovery from the pandemic, which implies that the renewed push to speed up vaccinations will lead […]

Dear Irregulars, I currently have the DOCU Jan 15 ’21 $75 Call options in my portfolio. I noticed that the options value has reamianed unchanged since 09/17 even though the underlying value of the stock value has moved quite a bit. Is there a technical reason for this? I have been scouring the internet and […]

Today I thought I’d explain what’s being teased in ads for Andy Crowder’s High-Yield Trader Inner Circle service from Wyatt Investment Research… it’s a relatively expensive service, $1,495/year, and does not offer refunds (the guarantee has lots of stipulations, and the reward for complaining and demanding a refund is “you get an extra year” — […]

I enrolled in Stock Gumshoe after reading lot of review comments. I have from my friends about Option trading . Travis , can you please let me know how to do Option trade and some stock which I can use for the same.Any help is much appriciated.

I am looking for one or more trading partners. Trading is a lonely business. I trade options spreads to reduce my cost, reduce my risk, increase my potential rewards. Anybody interested, please email me at hanksterr@gmail.com. Thanks.

I’d like to know if anyone has any experience working with Bryan Perry and his Quick Income Trader advisory service. His pitch comes in the form of the ”500% Profit Summit”. It consists of guided covered calls and naked puts against blue chip stocks. Gains are claimed to be anywhere from 40% to 100%, with […]

I notice in Travis real money portfolio there is not much weight on energy related stocks, and corresponding speculation (ie. call). I wonder – if my statement is correct or just an impression, and what are readers thoughts. – what is the main reason of that, if there is any. – and last, if Travis […]

I’ve gotten quite a few questions recently about “income” and “buy stocks cheap” letters that are clearly veiled hints about put option selling… so I thought I’d take a look at one of them. The ad in question today is from Karim Rahemtulla, who calls himself “The Frugal Millionaire” in this spiel and has been […]

Options trading service from Karim Rahemtulla, recommends “collect income now and buy stocks at a discount” trades that are based on selling put options. Rahemtulla previously recommended options trades at times for Xcelerated Profits Report and has helmed several other newsletters in the past for the Oxford Club and other Agora affiliates.

I’m separating my comments here about hedging out from the rest of my ongoing Annual Review commentary, just for the sake of clarity (the latest missive, on my natural resources-related holdings, is here). I’ve written about hedging before — it tends to be expensive, if it’s effective at all, and it needs to be thoroughly […]

I’m always interested to see what kind of big-growth ideas are being teased, particularly in a market that already feels so expensive, so a Cabot pitch caught my eye again this week — this time it’s from Mike Cintolo for Cabot Growth Investor, and this is what grabbed my attention: “My Expectation: A 25% Jump […]

The purpose of this thread is to develop an energetic discussion of options trading that is particularly applicable to small biotech stocks as well as other similar small developing companies that have explosive potential. Concurrently I will provide a series of option trading instructional posts, commencing with the basics of options and proceeding through more […]

I’m sure a number of you have seen the email ad for Karim Rahemtulla’s Strategic Income newsletter … here’s what he promises in exchange for your subscription fee of $1,250: “‘Gibraltar Strategy’ Cranks Out 10-Times More Cash From Stocks Than Dividends” Sounds good, no? It gets better! “On October 16, a handful of income-seekers had […]
