    A long wait for the second half to see if BP's speculation is correct. All bets on oil prices if we/the world slips into a recession as Citi is predicting.

    "BP believes that global oil demand and supply will achieve balance this year in the second quarter on the back of aggressive demand growth and declining rig counts." "believes" is the key word which is pure speculation.
    T. Boone Pickens has been predicting increasing demand since the middle of last year however I see that he sold all of his oil holdings so I guess that prediction isn't going well for him.

  • High-Dividend Stock Yields Over 9%, Goes Ex-Dividend This Week, Has Future 25% Hike  [View article]
    Maybe so David but I am glad I didn't "back up the truck". Of course I suppose one could say that now is the time to double down with such an attractive yield. I think I will watch from the bleachers.

    Mark I was looking at Z scores given at PowerOptions for ZION. PowerOptions gives a Z score and a Z" which is much like the Z2 score mentioned in the linked article, both scores has ZION near bankruptcy. Of course as mentioned in the Z score article the Z and Z2 scores don't take a lot of things in consideration however if I were long a stock I wouldn't like to see a Z score deep in the red.

    NewbietoG......this is a very well written article and I enjoy the fact that there are more than one strategies discussed. I would suggest you also read the articles (or the whole series) written by Mark Bern on hedging.

  • General Electric: We Are Liking This Trade  [View article]
    Here is how I would play this if I liked GE as a long term hold. I would buy a multiple of 100 shares and for each hundred shares I would sell a 17-January 25 call. Owning the stock allows you to collect 4 dividends over the life of the call. If GE is below 25 in January then your effective cost per share is about $24.4 not counting the .92+/- per share dividend received. Of course if GE stock is more than 25 you lose the stock but keep the 4.40 premium and dividends.
    Annualized yield = about 7.3%

  • Dividend Aristocrat Beating The Market, Just Reported Strong EPS Growth, Estimates Rising  [View article]
    Fcfrag In-N-Out may have the best burger in the world but when one is on a road trip how many freeway food signs around the US have an In-N-Out burger joint listed? I cant remember the last time I saw one that didn't have a MCD listed and sometime the only listing. McDonalds is everywhere, you don't have to drive around wasting time and gas when you are looking for something to eat as they are usually the first burger joint off the freeway exit. The food may not be great but its better than most fast food eateries, you don't have to feel like your experimenting when you eat there.
    Personally I wont buy MCD now just pennies off its 52 week high but I think MCD will be around longer than most.

    HanYOLO I'm not sure what you mean when you dismiss this article with "that's all that really needs to be said"? The article is about one options play. Other people might have ideas (strategies) to bring to the table for profit so I think there is more that really needs to be said.

    Another way to play it is to buy the stock, sell the Jan(2017) 60 call, you get at least three of the dividends and if the stock drops below 60 your effective cost is about 53.55.
