  • Supercharge Blue Chip Investing With LEAPS [View instapost]
    Camille, thanks for the article. Have you considered selling nearer term OTM calls covered by the ITM LEAPS? I haven't done this but it would seem to be a way to generate income (a synthetic dividend if you will).

  • 6 Guidelines For Covered Call Writing [View instapost]
    "It makes no sense to pick a strike below basis". From the narrow perspective of avoiding a capital loss I would tend to agree. But there might be strategies where one might pick a strike below the current cost (basis) of a stock where the premium collected is greater than the capital loss, especially if there was an upcoming dividend, yes?

    Just need to avoid early assignment. I have been stripping dividends (and reinvesting them) for a number of months successfully using this strategy. Of course, a bull market makes geniuses.......

    There is the risk that assignment could occur earlier then Jan and at a price less then 55 because of the dividend, yes?

  • Battle Of The Heavyweight Gold Diggers; Who Comes Out On Top? [View article]
    I would conclude just the opposite re "the price of good to continue to plummet" for the reasons mentioned. Further, "continue to plummet" mischaracterizes price action of gold IMHO.
