  • Dividend Investors Should Take Cover [View article]
    Actually, I think you can easily aim for 2x the annual dividend using covered calls. Half my portfolio is always in stocks and write calls against. Between dividend, capital appreciation, call premium, rollovers, you should be able to average 3% plus monthly.

    hahaha48, my fees are 4.31% of net profit. Parsimony's method would be considered a conservative covered call method in my opinion. I don't know where you got the bid ask spread is high. You usually can get the order filled at midpoint between the bid ask.

  • Goldman updates list of hedge funds most-shorted stocks [View news story]
    Maybe I should just fill out my portfolio with the stocks on the list I don't own. Solid companies for the most part.

  • One Man's Self-Deceit Is Another Man's Rationalization [View article]
    OK, I can't stop.

    Because S&P upgraded JBLU to B+, I did a buy/write on Jul 17 22's for $1.07. This is 4.9% unassigned or 5.2% assigned for two months.

    I like to have a ladder of plays and JUL needed another player.

    George, I've got enough oars in the water anyways and give them time to work. I wouldn't doubt the market goes higher. But that doesn't mean my stocks go higher. LOL.

    I just don't want to get sucker punched and be low on cash.

  • Why I Am Leaning Negative - S&P 500 VS. INDEX [View instapost]
    Stocktrader, that's the problem I have too. I don't like buying when the stocks are bumping along at the top of the range. I also see what I think is churning of stocks to pull money out. But, what do I know. Shrugs shoulders.

    Sitting on cash from assignments this past weekend. I'll let the cash take a break for now and wait for good setups. I'd like to see the volatility higher for better premiums anyways.

    I don't see any good setups, so I'm going to let my cash get some rest. With Algos trading baskets of stocks long and short milking the money out of the market, I can wait for great deal.

    Gel, I use the weekly chart on 1 to 2 year basis and like to buy when the stock is bouncing on support, usually well below the 60 day VMA.

    There is no way I would have bought TWTR @ $51 area which was well above the 60 day VMA.

    Got $1.27 for the 37.50 June calls which is 3.4%.

    Mark, we can rationalize anything, but some of us have critical thinking issues. I think the Who had a song titled 'Won't get fooled again'.

    Gel,

    TWTR missed expectations, but earnings really didn't seem out of line with previous quarters. Took a nice 27% hit on the price and is in the price range I'm comfortable with.

    7/29/14 -.24
    10/27/14 -.29
    2/5/15 -.20
    4/28/15 -.25

    TWTR needs to monetize their product better, but tweeter is widely used and not going away.

    I'm in the Twin Cities too and have been getting a ton of calls with positions available. Not interested. Unemployment rate in this area is really low. Plus tax revenues continue to exceed estimates by quite a bit.

    TLT down 1.7% today. Maybe bond money coming into the market? GS is recommending buying their portfolio of dividend stocks as they don't see upside in the S&P. Expect dividends to be main source of ROI.

    The higher we go, the bigger the correction. $20 dollar oil like GS is thinking will screw up a lot of businesses.

    Gel, eight of the last ten weeks for CSCO has been positive. Might open another lot later this week.

    TWTR is one of those bi-polar stocks. Cheap enough now for the day traders to take a gamble and support the price. Decent premium too.

    Gotta love CBI and GILD.

    Strong move by IWM today. Bulls 7, Bears 0.
