  • Why FPA Capital's Rodriguez Has 42% Of His Equity Positions In Energy Stocks [View article]
    "Lastly and most imperative, oil in the ground and assets used to produce it, should provide a store of value against potential future monetary inflation."
    Rogriguez gets it! If for no other reason you should be into oil and its' ancillary support industries. There's good money to be made NOW, but not for sissies who fret over sector allocations. Unless they come up with wind powered cars, oil is it for the next 50 years. and the US of A is gonna be swimming in it starting at a gas station near you. I practice what I preach and lovin' it. Cha-ching,cha-ching!

  • 3D Printing's Intersection Of Promise And Reality: An Interview With Terry Wohlers [View article]
    Ignoring my gut reaction,I fell for the hype and tucked some of these away for the long term ( the sound of choking, if you are sitting here). Non of these "monkeys" are 900 pound gorillas. These are not penny stocks on the cheap, with great potential. No real killer exclusive patent holders. Lots of imaginative potential yes! Then there is this market...Can we sit around holding, waiting long term watching the bubble as our primates grow by ounces? I think no.
    As enthralled as I am, this zoo keeper is opening the cage door tomorrow. Listen for the little "thumps". Ahh.. the air smells clean again. Try options where feasible.

  • This Undervalued High Dividend Stock Is Making A Comeback In 2013 [View article]
    Your July "Secured Put" ties up $2500 per contract as long as you maintain that position as well as extending your vulnerability to that time period. If you are "put to", lets say, if the stock falls to $21, during this period you will have to buy the stock at a cost of $2100 per option contract + the $1450 premium collected per contract + plus brokerage for a minimum of $3550 in "damage" to your account. This is not a good idea.

  • This Undervalued High Dividend Stock Is Making A Comeback In 2013 [View article]
    "Secured" short comment continued:
    Please read my bio and you will know that I specialize in short trading.

    Bob, you expose your readership to 6 months of vulnerability with a 6 month short. Yes, I know you can "bail" at any time,but that would mean the plane is going down and the premium collected has to be bought back at a higher price before the crash and burn. This should be added to your "Disadvantages" list.

    My suggestion:
    Sell to open the CMLP 13 Feb 25 Put for a .30 premium to be collected by you 3 days after execution. ( this is not a trade to die for.)
    Instead of your broker "holding back" $2500, the margin will be around $460 per contract and you will have about $29,more or less depending on the broker fee .Check to see if corp events are going to be in the way first.

    So here's the math: you are risking $460 for a $29 premium, as of this date, for 18 days. 29/460 = 6.3% for only 18 days with a target painted on your back. How's them apples? Now do this each month for a possible total of 36% or a 72% return annually. the is smaller premium, less exposure, less risk. BTW there are better stocks to do this with than the above.

  • Look To Hi-Crush For A 9% Yield With Limited Downside [View article]
    RIP-please talk to your tax advisor about MLPs in IRAs. You would have to own a large % of em in your IRA to cause problems. as usual due diligence is in play here.

  • This Apple High Cannot Last [View article]
    Markos!
    How dare you criticize AAPL?
    This is akin to going into a house of worship, yelling blasphemous things!

    There is a lot of emotion invested here. Careful with bursting that "bubble",especially when the micro fundamentals are in sync with the retail market. So ride it, for what it's worth.

    Also the macro market could turn on a dime pending US November election results.

    Keep up the good work.

    Full time trader 18 years.
    Fundamental and technical analyst... stocks, options, indices,etc..
    Trading a bracketed, naked short and long option system, as well as various other stratagems. Constant market studier and student: conferences, courses, computer programs. All a lot of crap if you don't sit back, take a breath and try to look at the world thru fresh eyes. This includes ignoring the talking heads and media in general.

    Mostly on the sidelines now because I don't trade when the market is confused or I am.
