No room for my legs and I’m under 6 feet tall.

The only reason the airlines can continue to get away with this is due to the heavy traffic. It seems that everyone wants to travel somewhere.  On a recent trip across the midwest I noticed that people are willing to put up with crowds and crowds are wanting to fly. It seems that young people are not concerned about retirement but the experiences of life. So rather than opt to start a Roth IRA they are traveling the world. It is for these reasons we are playing BA two ways this week. As this Friday is the 13th we approach with caution. We are buying BA at the $350 to $352 level and selling the December 13, 350 calls for $4.50 to $5.00.  We are also selling the December $340 Puts.  The put will bring you $70 per 100 shares and is the more conservative play as we don’t see the stock drawing back down that far.

Best In Show, the bulldog.

When you are picking team members you want the best available at the time. Now no guarantee that if you draft the best player that they will perform, however the odds are usually in your favor. It is for this reason we are looking at JPM, selling the December 6, 129 PUTS. We have a slight pullback this morning and we believe in JPM long term. We are also seeing some movement in FB, still a major player in the acquisition of information, especially all the advertising over the holidays, so we are selling the December 6, 195 puts. We have seen BA come down some but we believe the holiday travels will add to many bottom lines, so we are also selling the December 6,  352.50 Puts. You may ask why all puts at the moment, well we want the stocks we like to come to us. Being up above 28,000 on the DOW we are patient investors. Keep abreast of any changes during the week. As numbers come in from the shopping holiday we will take advantage of big moves either way.

Winning is a process!

Learning to do the same thing over and over can seem boring, but not when you make money doing it. Learning to use options is a process and learning the process can increase your 401K balances throughout the year. Last week we again had a full week of winners. It is the process that tells us to stay with our winners. We are selling the SLB $35.50 11/29 PUTS. We are looking to get .20 to .25 cents per share this week.  If we are PUT the stock we’ll be in it below the $35.50 mark.  We believe the stock will continue to float and provide continued option income. As many are rushing online and to the mall we are aware of expectations, so we are looking to those firms that profit from the event itself, such as FB and its advertising.  We are buying FB here at $200 and selling the 11/29 $200 calls for $2.00. A 1% return for the week. This puts us in the stock at $198, however we expect that by the end of the week you’ll be called away.
