HI Financial Services Commentary 01-17-2017

What are my choices in the stock market because everything I look at seems to be the same and now it is 2017?

This is the question I’ve gotten since November of last year.  What do you think is the correct response?

Of course, I’m going to do the same thing. Because I have experience and know how well it works

There better way to create wealth than by picking up shares as stocks fall in value. 

Basis collar trade structure is

BTO Stock @ $100

BTO ATM Long puts 60 days after earnings (45 – 75 days range)

STO 3 -4 strike higher short calls (45-90 days)

Thought less than 3.5% Total invested capital risk for the earnings play

I don’t like to cap the upside

Looking for 4 rewards per 1 risk


If we have really bad earnings = I run out to a leap short call for a huge credit because I want a negative delta effect

Looking to adjust the short call and long put around a support level willing to add long puts again immediately if support doesn’t hold

Trading is a process You get just as excited to see stocks fall as you do to see them go up
