  • Blue Chip Mortgage REIT American Capital Agency May Be One Of The Best Ports In This Storm  [View article]
    I have been out of AGNC for couple years now. Sold out at/near the top and have watched it suffer ever since. I'll take a closer look at it again to see If it warrants further consideration at this time. As of late not much good news to be found anywhere in Market-City.

  • AT&T: A Potentially Groundbreaking Development  [View article]
    Thank you for your perspectives on AT&T. It should be an interesting year for them. Just Yesterday they hit a New 52 week High cracking that $37 barrier. In the face of an otherwise nasty marketplace. Stocks down again today. T falling off a tad early. Personally, I want them back below $36, though an elevated but continuing narrow new range would be welcome. Say $34 - $37 in the year ahead with the occasional foray up to the mid $37 range.

    Think it is good that AT&T is actively and publicly facing the challenge of 5G as this does bode well for the future. Much testing and evaluation work needs to be done by all parties involved to ensure that the best equipment and best Freq. ranges are chosen and that the Final FTC guidelines, Rules and Regs make for a fair and even playing field and will accommodate a smooth transitioning from the old to the new Formats and Bandwidths. that should prove to be an interesting proposition and will eventually involve testing on and with other DataCom Players like Vz and even Foreign Players.

  • AT&T Did Not Disappoint  [View article]
    Thank you for your efforts and information. Can't say I disagree with you at this point.
    Playing both a very near term and slightly longer term position in some Options.
    Looking for T to Peak and then fall back within the next 2 months prior to the run-up before the next Divy. Looking to continue to make an extra 1 to 1.5% extra Dividend each Qtr This year via Options trading. If it all pans out I'll net more than 12% on T this year. With minimum effort. Worst case I only make the 6% I all ready have booked.

  • Calling Out AT&T Management  [View article]
    Author fails to mention the impact of the 2014 Writedowns and adjustments made by ATT. Nothing wrong with T other than being range bound. Though I think that range will creep up slowly over the course of the year.Meanwhile selling out of the money covered calls an days When T spikes up makes it additionally Profitable. I even bought some $34 calls prior to the earnings report and sold out on Weds for a tidy and Quick less than 10 days Gain of 1 and 1/2 of an additional Qtrly Divy Profit. Collecting the actual Divy on Monday the 1st.
    Have a great day on Monday counting that Dividend Cash and deciding what you'll be doing with it all.

  • Another Dividend Aristocrat Beating The Market, With Estimates Rising, Reports This Week  [View article]
    Sir, I am trying to learn the ropes of Option trading, outside the safe realm of selling CCs. Primarily with 'T'. I have been doing my best to get a good grasp on these things, Buying/Selling; Calls/Puts and have made some progress and profits. I have sold CCs and Bought them back to maintain a slim to mid-level profit, I have then rolled over the CCs to further increase my profits and the Profits of being Called at a Price I would accept for my Shares of 'T' (cost just over $32, CC exercise price at $37 Plus 2 soon to be 3 Divys and The CC Premiums, less the modest transaction costs.).
    There is nothing wrong with your basic approach. As for myself, I can stand to have the additional income that trading these Options brings to the table. It does come with the cost of Time and fees and vigilance. If that isn't your cup of tea. God Bless.
    Each of us has to assess our own risk tolerance and the time and effort we're willing to invest in upping our ROR or ROI. I have the time to do this so I do.
    Hope you continue to be a successful Investor and live well within your comfort zone. That is not to say that those who disagree with you or are looking for additional income are wrong or even against your POV. It just says they have the desire. the time, and are willing to make the Effort to try and increase their own personal Incomes and New Worth.
    Have a great Investing Year.

  • The Problem With AT&T  [View article]
    Given the crime rate in St Louis and the nature of the shifty clientele this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Let someone else take on the risky client base and deal with the collections problems. just my worthless opinion.

    Now I do agree that installation of Upgraded MANs with WAN/LAN Business Connectivity would be a good thing.

  • Another Dividend Aristocrat Beating The Market, With Estimates Rising, Reports This Week  [View article]
    I Did take the Money and ran. Made 100%+ on my little investment. So to still have a little skin in the game coming into Tues PMs Earnings report I spent a little under $200 and bought some Feb 5 16 $37 T Calls (before T fell back Mon PM) 50 Calls average cost $.03. If T has a good earnings report and Pops afterhours and on Weds. I hope to make a little bit extra w/ minimum risk.
    So far have the divy coming in next week, Have the proceeds from the two call transactions and without the divy factored in I have made almost 3Qtrs worth of return within one month's time. (still have 50 $37 02/05/16 options out there)

  • AT&T: The 'Direct' Impact  [View article]
    Looking forward to a good earnings report and a "Pop" in PPS near-term. then likely yo settle into a higher trading range in the mid term. Bought some in the money $34 calls a week+ ago in anticipation of an Earns. 'pop' and cashed them today for a 117% profit after fees.
    bought some out of the money Calls @ $37 and will wait and see what happens in the next couple weeks. Little to risk but plenty to gain. Plus that Dividend is due to be paid next Monday. Long T and liking it. Already made an extra Divy and a half in a week's+ time.
    Good Luck to All.

  • Another Dividend Aristocrat Beating The Market, With Estimates Rising, Reports This Week  [View article]
    A couple weeks back I bought back my 01/29/16 Covered calls options for a small profit. I then proceeded to Buy T 01/29/16, $34 call options in anticipation of T's Earnings report being Higher.
    As of Friday the 22nd's close, I've doubled my money. Come Monday I'm wondering what should I do. I'm thinking if T opens higher on Monday to sell-off 1/2 of my Calls and take my seed money off the table and then wait and see Tues. Night/Weds. AM bring. In any case I have to sell-off this week. Since I'm new to options Trading I was wondering what Author and other more experienced traders think about this. Thanks and regards in Advance.
