Let's trade trade trade, and then trade some more! Love the ladies on FOX business, and Fidelity loves me. I think that's enough. No book, No blog, No company - dammit. I'm such a failure.

    Some of you might be interested in how a covered call position works out IRL - This is one I initiated earlier in the month (the older ones have too many entries to be replicated here)

    So here's one way you can take $38K and make it $80K in 6 months. (position initiated July 8)

    Best case: ~$65,000 profit (as yield @ 6% average per week)

    Worst case: ~$38,000 profit (as yield @ 2% average per week)

    if the stock goes up $1 by January 1 (to $10.59) add $10K unrealized gain to the pile. If it goes to $0.00 I could still make ~$27,000.00 net in yield. ($65K total profit less the loss of my $38K investment) and get my money back.

    This is not rocket science. I think if more of the SA people spent less time arguing about who's OPINION is more right and more time looking at their "options" - they'd make more "MONY" as someone once said.


    PS: If I can edit this after it is published I will update it every weekend.
