Dividends & Income

I have been investing for over 35 years. I have developed my own investing strategies for selling naked puts and covered calls. My naked put strategies remain my favorite choice. While many people do not see options as an investing strategy, after 35 years of being involved with some of the greatest companies in the world, I have found that I can generate annual double digit returns in good and bad markets. My trades are posted to my website fullyinformed.com
While options is a strategy that often involves small gains, they are regular and consistent small gains which over a period of time add up to large returns. On my entire stock portfolio I have consistently managed annual returns of 12% or better every year
in up an down markets. These are not averages but annual which when totalled up over a 35 years period show the real power of options in both generating income while also offer some protection against declines.
My strategy is a split of 40% in stocks, 30% in bonds and 30% in cash which is available at all time to take advantage of investing opportunities such as when stocks go on sale during periods of panic or large declines. I believe investors need to treat their investing like a business. This means setting realistic goals and using solid back tested strategies. I sleep nights knowing that in any market my portfolio is performing as it should.

After 35 years of investing I am pretty well decided that no one truly can judge what direction the market is heading. Many mutual fund returns show how even professionals have trouble making consistent returns. I concentrate on quality blue chip companies through a strategy of slling covered calls, selling
naked puts and averaging into stocks. I set realistic goals of 12% a year and have found that in good and bad I am able to reach my goal. I run my investing just like a business with clear goals and objectives. Through using a wide variety of naked put and covered call strategies I have been able to take advantage of market plunges as well as roaring market recoveries to consistently stay the course and earn my returns. I tend to paper trade until I find a strategy that can consistently provide me with income potential while providing me with the level of comfort I need to be able to sleep nights. I then put that strategy into play using my capital. The goal is to stay invested with about 40% of my capital, through bull and bear markets in order to augment my gains. The rest of my capital I divide up between cash and bonds.
