    @roman2012,

    There is a typographical error in his original article. acpipa also picked up on this. Based on the author's reply, he meant buy the January 2014 Put with a strike price of $30, not the January 2012 put.

    Nice article. I will have to do more research on the stocks mentioned.

    @Petrach,
    I am not so sure about NUS. I am rather cautious about MLM companies.

  • Retired Investors - How Do You Manage Risk?  [View article]
    Actually there are 2 ways to trade options:
    1. As a speculation tool
    2. As a hedging tool

    Using options as a speculative tool is a gamble but using them as a hedging tool is a fine way to spread your risk. You just have to know the advantages and disadvantages of the various methods. (There is no such thing as a free lunch.)

    In my own portfolio, I have various stocks. I use options as a hedging tool to protect my position in case of a sudden drop as in what happened to YUM earlier this month.

    Interesting comment. There is a typographical error in your first sentence. It should be "If you SELL covered calls", not "If you BUY covered calls".

    As for the strategy itself,there is no free lunch so there is the risk of the stock being called away from you if the price rises. Then you either have the choice of either lertting the stock be called away from you or of buying back the sold option. at a higher price than what you sold it for.

    Yes, I like this comment. Too many traders trade without knowing themselves. Vital for any investor/trader.

    Antonio,
    The McDouble is what is called a loss leader. You sell something at a loss so as to bring in more customers into your store with the expectation that they will then buy other goods ( a large Coke, fries and/or a hot fudge sundae) which will more than offset the loss on the loss leader.

    Can you please cite your source for the obesity rates for South Korea? I was in South Korea in July this year. Based on my personal observation, there did not seem to be too many fat people there. Again, based on my personal observation and not on any specified source, the percentage of obese Asians in the US seems to be less than that for the general population.

    OK guys, let's keep this discussion civil. No name calling and that applies to both the longs and the shorts.

    @Georgi Dimitrov,
    Nice article. You have obviously done a lot of research and it shows.
    Keep up the good work.
