We Give You Options
The U.S. stock market is bumping against its all-time highs, while corporate profits shrink. We’re almost certain to see interest rates rise in the coming months, and no one – including us – would be surprised to see a market correction.
So, what’s a smart investor to do? Hunker down and brace for a big drop? Wait for months as the market continues to waffle sideways?
Or do you profit from the situation? Starting tomorrow?
You can make big money in a down or sideways market—in other words, in this market—with options. And at Investing Daily, we give you options. Two of our publications are dedicated to options trading, and several others leverage the expertise of their analysts to bring you rich option plays.
You may think options are too risky or require too much specialized knowledge. Options, as many small investors have found out the hard way, are a case where a little bit of knowledge can lose you lots of money. The temptation of options is big gains for a small investment, because options can give you control over big blocks of stock for a small price.
The flip side is if you don’t hedge your bets, or make bad options plays, you can lose your shirt quickly.
But a smart options play, well, that’s a beautiful thing. That’s a case where some profound knowledge can make you lots of money. Consider how our options master Jim Fink of our Options for Income and Velocity Trader services, made 100% for his Velocity Trader subscribers.
On May 10 Jim recommended buying puts (an options play that profits when a security drops in price) on iShares U.S. Real Estate ETF (IYR). His rationale was three-fold: The real estate market was softening; market makers had a vested interest in the ETF not rising in price; and a history of that security falling, on average, around that time of year.
Sure enough, just 10 days later the value of the puts doubled from $1.02 to $2.04.
Jim lands big scores like that often, but on average his options plays yield more than 8% each. That’s not 8% annually, that’s 8% on average for each play.
Jim’s Options for Income service makes you money instantly by selling his recommended covered calls and put options.
Starting tomorrow, Jim Fink will contribute two options picks per month to Investing Daily’s flagship publication, Personal Finance. This is a great way for novice options traders to get a taste of options, as one year of Personal Finance is just $39.95.
This ain’t Jim’s first rodeo. He has traded options for more than 20 years, generating personal profits of more than $5 million. A former telecom lawyer – good training for the arcane world of options! – Jim holds degrees from Yale, Harvard, Columbia and the University of Virginia.
