Hubris? I Suppose Not.
Good that you just “remind” readers of your outstanding [and free!] prognostications.
This helps construct confidence in these which are nonetheless “feeling you out” — and, subsequently, could result in extra of the success you’re employed so arduous to guide your readership towards.
— Ken B.
Thanks for writing in, Ken! You could have earned this week’s “Confuse the hell out of Mr. Nice Stuff” award!
Critically … I’m nonetheless debating whether or not you’re critical or simply sarcastic on a degree that goes proper over my head.
I imply, did you have to place “remind” in quotes?
Sure, Nice Stuff is free. Sure, my prognostications are usually fairly good.
The Nice Stuff Picks portfolio isn’t sitting on a complete common achieve of 97%, with an total win charge of 95% for nothing.
Sure, I like tooting my very own horn … who else is gonna do it? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I’ve a larger accountability than you possibly can presumably fathom.
Sorry … I by accident channeled Col. Jessup there for a minute.
However, as I simply advised Willi, your success is extra essential than my ego. Nice Stuff is free as a result of I would like my no-frills, layman’s phrases investing analysis to be out there to everybody. If that helps to construct confidence in Nice Stuff, so be it.
Then once more … my editor tells me that I’m simply too sarcastic and that: “It seems like Ken is extra on the appreciative facet to me.”
True. Thanks, Ken. Really, thanks.
Extra Sarcasm? SuuUUuure, Simply What I Wanted
From the sarcasm capital of Jap Winter Seaside — why doesn’t my TV maintain me up to date on Tulip futures? — John S.
Most likely for a similar motive why we will’t have onion futures anymore: as a result of somebody … someplace ruined it for the remainder of us. Ain’t that the way it all the time goes?
I simply wanna know once I can commerce my tulips for wooden … err… lumber, that’s. Anybody else assume Wall Avenue is an excessive amount of like Catan these days?
Thanks for writing in, John!
Choices Time? Say No Extra
Nonetheless promoting places on PLUG and lovin’ it. — Lee S.
Super, Lee! Now we have quite a lot of of you put-selling sluggers on the market, and each time I hear from y’all, you’re making out like bandits on this market. Granted, I don’t know what number of of you’d write in to brag about your losses, so…
Now, if Lee’s message learn like gobbledygook, you got here to the precise place!
Put promoting is the Swiss Military knife of choices buying and selling. While you promote a put, you pocket the choice premium so long as the inventory stays above the choice’s strike — i.e., the inventory stays put or rises.
That makes this an effective way to generate income on a inventory you need to personal — reminiscent of Nice Stuff Decide’s suggestion for Plug Energy (Nasdaq: PLUG) — however don’t essentially wish to pay present market costs for.
You may both nab the inventory at a greater value when shares dip … or earn earnings steadily if the inventory rises. (And sure, I vastly oversimplified this. For those who’re trying to promote places, learn extra due diligence earlier than you commerce, yada yada yada.)
Clearly, some merchants crank out these put-selling trades simply to generate income. In any other case, Lee would personal the inventory by now. With Plug’s current volatility, promoting deep out-of-the-money places could be the one manner you wouldn’t personal the inventory by this level. General, this can be a very legitimate strat — maintain kicking that mule, Lee!
Though, in some unspecified time in the future … you would possibly’ve been capable of make much more cash simply by shopping for PLUG shares outright or shopping for calls. Like with every little thing to do with choices, all of it is determined by your danger tolerance and your particular person investing targets.
I’ll get off my soapbox in a second … however in the event you don’t imagine how easy choices buying and selling will be, you’re in for a deal with: Click on right here to study extra.
