Options can be used in many ways and with this versatility comes the complexity of multiple conflicting parameters and criteria. With 8+ years experience trading options and 20 years trading stock, I've learned how to manage this complexity. However, the multiple conflicting parameters of options remains a significant challenge for the average options trader.

I am a retiree interested in increasing my monthly income. I currently have both ss and pension income, but sometimes find myself at the end of my money before the end of the month.
As I am a private investor, I am always learning about different investments and am not "married" to any one stock or methodology.
My first bad experience was in Oct 1987, whenI lost my shirt but kept my pants. Every day I learn. Like to give a shout out to Apple for an unpleasant relearning of the importance of margins.
Some trading is based on dividend ex-dates and valuations. Also do a fair amount of trading in energy stocks. Always have a sense of the macro investment environment and look for stocks in the sectors with an advantage.
I like open minded investors, who will buy a stock based on the valuation.
Follow SEC form 4 fillings and keep watch lists based on insider buying - like to see a cluster of insider buying or a lot of insider purchases over a long term. Like lots of cash and no debt on balance sheet.
Will buy almost anything if it is cheap enough and there seems to be a catalyst.
Look at the financial statements very carefully.
