  • Go Long Goodyear Tire & Rubber And Hedge With A Call Option [View instapost]
    Thanks for the comments. The posting comes from our "Covered Call Focus Blog" which we have been publishing for almost 2 years. In our blog we try to hit some of the points but as you pointed out we did not cover all of them. We try to keep it uncomplicated thus easy to read and not to long in the tooth. Not necessarily sure it's the right strategy but we consistently have over 7000 visits per month. Happy New Years!

    We error on the side of higher trading cost so that no one accuses us of pumping up the potential returns.

  • 4 Major Reasons Intel Is Too Cheap To Ignore [View article]
    I remember reading a story about the board members of Philco, laughing and all excited about how it won't be long before the transistor industry puts all of their competitor's out of business and they will end up with 100% of the tube business.
    PS: spell check didn't know what "Philco" was.

  • 4 Major Reasons Intel Is Too Cheap To Ignore [View article]
    We would recommend buying INTC and selling the Jan. 2014, 25 call for a premium of $.62 cents thus doubling the dividend. If the stock is not called away the annual return is 7.64%.

  • Why Value Investors Are Going To Cash [View article]
    Consider writing a covered call. An example would be buying KO @ $40.46 and selling the Jan. 2014 36.25 call. The option is trading @ $4.70 which only gives you a $.50 profit if called away in Jan. or earlier. What it does for you is give you a cost basis $35.76 and a dividend yield of approx. 3.11%. If the stock is called away earlier than Jan. you will make a return greater than money market from the dividend and if not your entry point will end up being at a price that should meet your "value screen" purchase price.

  • Billionaire Michael Hintze's New Stock Picks [View article]
    Simple, as started by "bmccle" beta has no correlation to performance, and not knowing that NEXEN was being bought out tells me that their is a disconnect with current information. As to your performance, how much risk was taken in the portfolio? Was the performance calculated as returns on the individual selections or was it a portfolio return? There is a big difference.

  • Just Energy Could Double Or Triple [View article]
    Great comments. I view this article as authors attempt to attract buyers in a stock that they have in their clients portfolios and in their own accounts. There is no reason to own this stock. In September 2012 the trading volume was 1/10th what it is today. Investors or insiders are selling (on down days the volume is 60% higher than on down days. It even looks like the company has a negative book value. Richard Kinder, CEO of KMI pays himself $1 a year and no executive at KMI earns more than $300,000 including all incentives.

    WLI was first published weekly in Business Week magazine starting in 1995 and has since made available to the public. As a subscriber of ECRI I have always known this. What is not public is the other 16 current and leading indicators for the US and the same array of indicators for the rest of the developed world.

  • Get Ready For The Stupid Recession [View article]
    Don't you think it;s about time we reduce the portion of GDP that is gov't influenced. We will not last long as a free market economy if the gov't continues to participate at a greater and greater %. Their role is to ?, I can't remember. What I do know is that I will have to pay 3.8% of rents received starting this year to pay for Obama-care. I also have to spend another $2,000 this year filing my registration due to Dodds-Frank. The more money I give to the every increasing in size gov't the less I have to donate to charities.

  • Get Ready For The Stupid Recession [View article]
    Are you saying that the recession I believe we are in "and will be proved correct once all the adjustments are made to the GDP" is actually Bush's fault? If so that is absurd. If you truly believe that than you know very little about business cycles. First (RECESSIONS) are a normal part of any free market economy. Therefore expansions do not last forever. After this recession is over and the next one develops, who will you blame it on? Don't tell me Bush.
