Veteran options-oriented value investor. Options can make you a riskier speculator - or they can make you a better value investor, a better dividend growth investor, or a better high yield income investor Incorporating customized and conservative value-oriented option strategies can significantly improve your performance while also helping you overcome the biggest drawbacks to value investing (rare bargain opportunities on truly world class businesses), dividend growth investing (takes too long), and current high yield income (high risk). For the last 7+ years, via the Great Option Trading Strategies website, I've been publicly advocating and teaching a customized options-oriented approach to acquiring ownership stakes in exceptional businesses at exceptional prices and to generate high yield income from low risk stocks. True investing works . . . and smart, conservative, customized option trades designed to systematically reduce risk and perpetually lower the cost basis on the long term investor's portfolio makes it work better and faster.
