The economic and market uncertainty over the past few years have made traditional buy-and-hold investing a challenge. Despite that, there’s still a sweet spot in the market that’s delivering profits day in and day out.
What’s the sweet spot? Trading options. This is hands down still one of the most effective money-making tools out there right now.
Just check out how a $10,000 ‘bet’ in this handful of trades could have fattened your wallet over the past 7 weeks alone:
A $6,364 profit on Verizon Calls (VZ) — in 4 trading days
A $4,400 profit on Walgreens Calls (WAG) — in 3 trading days
A $4,207 profit on United Technologies Calls (UTX) — in 4 trading days
A $4,085 profit on Constellation Brands Calls (STZ) — in 3 trading days
A $3,534 profit on Proctor & Gamble Calls (PG) — in 6 trading days
A $2,976 profit on Altera Puts (ALTR) — in 24 HOURS ONLY!
A $2,679 profit on Johnson & Johnson Calls (JNJ) — in 24 HOURS ONLY!
A $2,387 profit on Qualcomm Puts (QCOM) — in 3 trading days
A $2,351 profit on Proctor & Gamble Calls (PG) AGAIN — in 3 trading days
A $2,258 profit on Abercrombie & Fitch Puts (ANF) — in 24 HOURS ONLY!
Imagine, if all you did was invest in this handful of trades, you’d be $35,241 RICHER in the past 7 weeks alone!
Think this is by chance, not at all. The key to our performance is two-fold: 1) my flexible trading strategy allows us to move into trades where individual catalysts are strong, rather than investing based on macro-economic factors, and 2) our eagle-eye approach to taking quick profits as soon as a trade shows signs of vulnerability (recently that has meant holding trades for a matter of hours to a few days as you can see).
My research has uncovered another wave of strong catalysts shaping up to match — and hopefully exceed — these big winners.
Please Note: You don’t have to be a professional trader to successful trade options. I’m don’t use complex options strategies that require extensive experience to execute because I just don’t need them. I use simple puts and calls to help you manage volatility and downside risk.
Guess Who's Got a Hot Hand?
Before I reveal more about why the next 90 days could be my most lucrative session yet, allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Hilary Kramer. Maybe you’ve heard of me.
I have an MBA from Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania… launched my Wall Street career more than two decades ago at Lehman Brothers and Morgan Stanley… and was a successful investment banker and hedge fund manager.
I’ve contributed to the Wall Street Journal, New York Post, and Bloomberg. I’m a regular on CNBC, CNN, and Fox News — providing stock market insights.
But forget all that.
I want you to focus on exactly where I stand — TODAY. Let me ask you a sensitive question…
How have your Top 10 stocks performed since June 2011 — the month I officially launched my High Octane Trader advisory?
OK, I’ll go first. My publisher just handed me my Top 10 so far:
TPX April $90 Puts
EBAY May $34 Calls
GOOG Aug 500 calls
REGN March $90 Calls
RAX May $55 Puts
GS Feb. $95 calls
CMG Jan. $350 puts
REGN May $130 Calls
IBM Nov. $195 puts
BRCM March $34 calls
Top 10 Average Return: Your PROFIT if you invested $10,000 in each Trade:
See that last line? If you were lucky enough to plunk down $10,000 on each, your portfolio balance would be $127,000 BIGGER right now.
I don’t know about you. But most hard-pressed Americans can only dream about a payday this size.
Especially when I was in — and OUT — of the lion’s share within 5-10 trading days.
Hold on, it gets better. Amazingly, I’ve banked 8 out of 10 of my top-ten trades in 2012. Since January 1, 2013, I’ve closed out 66 winning trades for an average gain of 29.6%!
And that’s before my options trading strategy begins uncovering a BRAND NEW round of killer trades.
Now let me tell you about another factor that has the potential to really fuel our performance this year.
The BIGGEST Corporate “War Chest” the World Has Ever Seen!
M&A activity is of particular interest to low-priced stock investors like me (and you, I presume) now that we’re in one of the strongest seasons for takeover activity.
Let me explain why.
Companies have stockpiles of cash that they put toward business expansions, stock buy-backs, dividend increases, or, you guessed it — M&A activity. In an economic environment that makes it difficult to grow organically, many companies will use their piles of cash to go out and buy growth.
It would not surprise me at all if a few of our High Octane trades benefit from takeover offers in the coming months.
“Mega-Mergers See Comeback as Uncertainty of Crisis Fades” … New York Times
This is the Exact Moment I’ve Been Waiting For
The time is finally right for cash-rich companies to start spending, with mergers and acquisitions a likely target.
Just look at some of the big (but awfully quiet) deals that closed out 2012: WellPoint buying Amerigroup for $4.46 billion, Campbell Soup acquiring Bolthouse Farms for $1.55 billion, and Intel spending more than $4 billion to buy up to 15% of ASML.
I expect mega-merger activity to continue right through the end of the year and into 2014 now that the gloves are off. Valuations are especially reasonable right now … interest rates are low… and corporations have a MOUNTAIN OF CASH sitting on the sidelines.
No wonder the Wall Street Journal reported on a growing phenomenon…
U.S. companies are holding more cash in the bank than at any point on record.
And as Reuters’ David Cay Johnston recently pointed out, American companies may be hoarding more cash than most of us had previously realized … about $5 trillion worth.
That’s bigger than the GDP of Germany!
How about Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL), the greatest cash-generating company the world has ever seen. They saw their cash pile grow from $98 billion in the first quarter of 2012… to $110 billion in the second, and finally a whopping $117 billion in its latest quarterly report.
Other companies with billions of spare cash?
They include Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT), Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO), Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG), Oracle Corp. (Nasdaq: ORCL), International Business Machines Corp.(NYSE: IBM), Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE), Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX), Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE: XOM) and Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.B).
