  • VIX Short-Term Futures ETNs Present Rare Opportunities [View article]
    Been selling VXX put spreads. Returns on the trades have been very good. This week though my put spreads went ITM. On Wed it appeared overdone. Bought VXX calls (kept my spreads) then sold the calls on Thursday. Cha-Ching. Sold more VXX OTM put spreads today.

    I prefer VTI over SPY as well but wish that it was available for trading after hours.

  • 10 Stocks With High P/E Ratios That Insiders Are Selling [View article]
    NUAN is overvalued. The leap in prices today were on low volume for this kind of a move. The only upside is that it cleared an ascending triangle pattern. When that stock falls it will fall like a rock.

  • Canadian Income Stocks: An Attractive Alternative for U.S. Energy Investors [View article]
    The trusts have paid some high dividends. Too bad it is coming to an end. Another way to generate more income is to sell covered calls on high yield stocks, but start from the aspect of first finding covered calls that have a high ROI on a database of high yielding stocks.

  • Not All Dividends Are the Same, Even When They Are [View article]
    I enjoyed the article.

    One way to enhance the dividend yield is to sell covered calls against the stocks you own.

    Starting from the point of looking for options with a high ROI on top yielding stocks I ran a searching using the Covered Call search on MTRIG.com.

    For the expiration month of November Covered Calls that yield over 2% for 33 days on the top yielding stocks included (FRO) 10.71% Yield + 2.18% on a Covered Call. Then (ENP) 10% yield with 1.88% for a covered call. Of course the goal would be to sell a covered call to make additional income and still hold on to the stock to earn yield.

  • Five High Dividend Stocks Insiders Are Buying [View article]
    After reading this article I ran an expert option search for stocks with a 5% or greater div yield for options that expire in 38 days.

    I pulled a list of 108 options. Those options had an ROI for Covered Calls for 38 days of 5.38% Now compound that each expiration and tie in the dividend and you are making a good return.

    Some of the stocks of the expert option search included VSH,BKE,GRMN and more.

  • Three High-Probability Large Cap Put-Sale Ideas [View article]
    I would have to agree with RickSteph $10 fur the WMT options has no ROI based on the funds that have to be set aside for the trade.

    I have made $10 naked put trades many times where the ROI is 2% or better and the probability of assignment is close to nothing.

    This was the case with a recent GCI trade since the stock was trading around $12.40 the $12.00 puts were going for .20 and the ROI was over 2% for two weeks.

    This trade was found using the naked put and covered call screener on MTRIG.
