Patient, like to be real sure of my buys. I like to buy dividend paying stocks for the long haul that even my wife won't have to do anything but collect the dividends when I am gone. I hold a max of 12 stocks. I have been investing in stocks for 35 years. I also buy just a few options. But only at or in the money, and usually hold for a year, but only on stocks I am well convinced will rise. I have done real good using this method. Upon my death my wife knows to call the broker and have all options closed.
