Around six months ago, we launched Cash Builder Opportunities. We've made many successful trades since that time. Now that we are more established. We are looking for more members to join us by offering a 20% discount for new members! Before signing up, consider giving us a free 2-week trial to see if we are a great fit.

At Cash Builder Opportunities, we offer the Core Income Builder Portfolio and the Satellite Income Builder Portfolio. These portfolios are designed to build up an investor's income over time by selecting leading dividend growth stocks across various sectors for diversification. Our Core Portfolio is designed to be less active by letting them work over time. On the other hand, the Satellite Portfolio can be a bit more active when opportunities present themselves.

Where we are the most active is in our options writing strategy. We utilize a "wheel option strategy." In this approach, we prefer to write puts and then, if assigned, turn around and sell calls. This is a fairly common strategy. It is known as the "wheel option strategy," as you go around and around in a circular pattern.

Here is more about our strategy for investing.

Dividend Growth Stocks

Dividend stocks can be a great addition to any portfolio. That's whether an investor is just getting started out with investing or an investor that might already be in retirement that needs the income to live off of. This opens up the option for any investor to participate and experience income growth for themselves. As inflation rises, a stagnant cash flow can eat away at your buying power. Dividend growth stocks help mitigate this from happening - leaving you wealthier in the process.

Even further, dividend growth stocks can provide more stability and reliability over time. This is because they're typically the larger, more established names in the investing world. Not only are they providing income for investors, but they can give upside as well - not only through income growth but also through share price appreciation, which results in an even further wealthier shareholder.

Despite whatever market volatility, there might be, the income keeps flowing in with the right companies. The average dividend growth of the portfolio from 2019 to 2020 was 8.24%, even during a year that saw a lot of economic pressure due to lockdowns induced by COVID. The average yield as of typing (12/13/2021) also comes to an attractive 3.24%. That works out to being 149%-plus higher than the S&P 500's 1.30% yield (as of the end of November 30th, 2021).

Options Writing

Writing options is a way to generate additional income through portfolio holdings or through positions not held. This can be done through cash-secured puts or naked puts. We focus on cash-secured puts, which results in an additional way that cash sitting on the sidelines can potentially earn a very attractive return. That's especially true with the current interest rate environment.

While the enhanced income is a primary driver, writing puts also can be used to achieve better entry prices relative to what a stock is trading at today. This is because if you are put the shares at expiration, you're essentially buying them for cheaper than when you originally wrote the contract.

As an additional point similar to dividend growth stocks, if writing options, the income can keep flowing in no matter the market environment. In fact, premium income can be even higher during times of increased volatility. This is because investors are more willing to pay up for "insurance" against their positions.

There are two categories to look at when writing options. There's a conservative category and an aggressive category. Successful options written recently include companies such as AbbVie (ABBV), Realty Income (O), and AT&T (T). Those fall into the conservative category.

For the aggressive option writer out there, we've had success with companies such as Humanigen (OTC:HGEN), Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI), and Palantir Technologies (PLTR). The aggressive category would be defined as those that we wouldn't necessarily want to hold over the long term, rather those that we would take advantage of over the shorter term to juice up an income-building strategy.

Though not always, some of these can be positions we want to add to. Sometimes these trades are just for more cyclical stocks in nature or have other unique risks that make them more aggressive style trades. These are riskier trades and not for everyone.
