    i've currently been selling puts and calls within a 30% range of the market on cash heavy stocks which are great long term plays ie. mcd, jnj, bax, kbh, eth, acn, mos.  collecting premiums right now pays the bills.  if you have to take down some stock, no biggie...your in luck the VIX is at 40 and you get paid to sell a call on your stock you bought and can lock in a gain today buy selling out dated calls.  that's the beauty of a 40 VIX reading.  with the money you raise buy some cheap ass corp's at 10-12% or if you understand mortgage backed securities get invvolved in that arena, stupid cheap assets out there.
