  • Should the Rich Be Taxed at All? [View article]
    America certainly does tax wealth! Property taxes not only diminish wealth, but they cumulatively tax the gains from each previous year again. Also, unless the estate tax is removed altogether, America will continue to exhibit that it steals wealth from the dead.

  • 4 Good Value Stocks Nearing Buy Territory [View article]
    I concur with three of the four. No need to own VZ. Actually, it is better not to own any of them. Instead, consider selling/writing/shorting the out-of-the-put options. Historically favorable spreads to the strike prices out to Aug/Sept period on Aapl, GS, and Xom.

  • Is It Worth Investing in the Merck / Schering Merger Now? [View article]
    Pick your poison... but a clear winning position would be to sell the out-of-the-money puts on either, and you won't have to worry about the return. Instead, you will be pretty well assured that you will pocket the put premiums without risking assignment. Much better alternative, and the % return = incalculable, since you have not put-up any risk capital. My take on both stocks = they both are fairly priced now.

  • Cash for Clunkers a Losing Proposition [View article]
    Let the program expire: Why should I be penalized by supporting a program which has rewarded individuals who were not smart enough with their automobile investment dollars in the first place?

  • Why Selling Puts Is Not Collecting Free Money [View article]
    Good. I enjoy reading the ignorance that someone spouts about options. It gives me a better advantage. This author obviously has had very little experience in puts, and does not understand value vs. time premiums or how to roll out and down. Good, good, good: Ignorance is bliss.
