A rarely heard of investment strategy; The Collar

Many people own or trade stocks.  Investors use fundamental analysis to choose a stock to purchase in hopes that it will go up in value.  Some purchase a stock for the income it may provide via dividends.  Traders purchase or sell stocks based on technical analysis buying and selling often on movement or volatility in the stock price.  These are all very basic and your 401K and IRA’s do the same thing depending on which one you chose your broker to invest in.

     A more advanced and even more conservative stragety however is to “write a covered call”.  This means to sell a contract on the stock that you already own.  This will produce an income even if the stock price stays the same, or even goes down in value that month.  It also helps to hedge, or offset the downside numbers in your account if the stock price does go down that month because although your stock went down in value by say 2%, you may have received 1% in income from selling the covered call.  

     This is how it works;  lets say you own 100 shares of xyz stock.  You bought it a while ago at $50/ share.  The price is now $60/ share.  Instead of selling the stock to actually realize a profit, because it may continue to go up in price as the years or months go on, you choose to write a covered call.  This means that you sell a contract to a person, they pay you an agreed upon price to purchase the stock at any time they choose in the next month (or longer if you wish, for a higher premium of course).  So you bought the stock at $50, its already at $60, and you sell a contract to sell it to someone at $65.  For this they premium they pay you for that privilege (contract) may be $.25.  These are all multiplied by 100 so you would recieve $25 income to agree to sell your stock to them at $65 in the next month.  

     So, if the price does reach $65 or higher the buyer of your contract will “exercise” or buy it from you at the agreed upon price of $65.  That means you made a profit of $15/per share plus $25 for the agreement (options contract).  Pretty good deal right.  You locked in a price to sell it at a profit and got money (income) to do it.  If the price never reaches $65 then you keep your stock and the $25 and do it again month after month.  And the great part is that if your stock keeps climbint every month, you simply move your agreed upon selling price up, guaranteeing you more profit and still get the income.   

     An example would be, you did exactly the above for this month.  Your xyz stock price did go up, but it only went up to $62.50.  This means the purchaser of your contract will certainly not buy yours at $65 when they can buy it on the open market at $62.50  So you keep his money, and the contract expires on the third friday of every month.  Now that your stock price has moved up, this month you sell the contract for the same price ($25), but this time you agree to sell your stock at $67.50 instead of $65!  Sound pretty good eh?  It is.  Its a smart and more conservative way to own a stock rather than to just buy it and hold it.  

     Now we get to the more advanced move.  We create what is called a Collar.  This means we own the stock, sell the covered call as above, but instead of pocketing the $25 premium for the contract we put it to work opening another position (opportunity) for us.  We already own the stock, the $25 was free, so we take that money and we buy a call option.  This means that if the stock price goes up, we not only sell our stock at a profit, but we also sell our options contract at an option, and we bought this option with the money we sold the contract to sell for.  So lets look at what happens.

     If the stock price goes up, but doesnt reach $67.50 then we keep your stock, and we sell our call option that we bought at a profit, and it was paid for by the selling of the other option contract.  

     If the price of our stock doesnt change, we keep our stock, and both options contracts expire costing us nothing.

     If the stock price rises above $67.50/ share;  We sell our stock at a nice profit, and we also sell our call option we purchased at a profit as well, getting to profits off of one stock position.

     If the stock falls in price this month;  we keep our stock, and both of our options contracts expire without any money plus or minus.

AFECT= Alwood Field Expedient Character Test

How to evaluate peoples character traits, and yours!

What do people know about you that you dont realize about yourself?  How do they use that to influence you without you even knowing?

Below is the chapter from my book Behavioral Programming.  This is how you can quickly determine a persons character type anywhere and anytime!

 

 

Now below is a short video of a TAT test I did, you can listen and think about how YOU would answer these, and what people think about you when you talk about seeminly mundane things every day!

 

 

 

2 words that will change how people respond to a sentence

 

These two common words can really make a difference!  They will make a difference in how people react to your statement or point.  Using just one or the other will tell their brain what thought you are really trying to convey to them. 

The word “And” consolidates and minimizes a point or fact.  You can use this when making a list that you want to minimize the effect.  Say if you were to be telling your boss about a project and there was a bad piece in there, to minimize the significance of the list you use “And”.

An example would be; Our sales of Widget A,B And C were down but……

The word “Or” multiplies and exaggerates a list. So if you want to make something look better or larger, use the word Or in your sentence.

This product works in cold or humid or hot climates.  When your brain hears this it hears 3 different things.  cold;hot;humid.  Compare that to:

This product works in the cold and hot and humid climates.

Hot and humid are lumped together as one.  Your brain counts 2 different characteristics, when there are really 3!

When speaking we can use voice tones to emphasize or deemphasize words, we can also use voice volume and speed to make those effects as well.  However, when typing a text or email, the use of these words in Imperative to the person seeing things your way.

Try being conscious of this in all of your texts this week and watch the difference!  It may seem small, but the human subconscious is strong.

A Wealth of Ignorance

A Wealth of Ignorance;  Why the rich get richer

 

 

“Ignorance is Not bliss, in finances ignorance causes poverty!”  Tony Robbins

 

There isnt a one of us out here that haven’t received money advice from a friend, co-worker, book, boss, etc.  The amount information or misinformation thrown at us about money is astonishing!  

     One of the top 3 peices of advice I have received in my life came while I was in Malaysia.  I was there with a good friend of mine, a self made Millionaire.  We were driving in his car through the capital of Kuala Lumpur on the way to a business meeting near KLCC (the Twin Towers).  I was young and excited to be around him and his colleagues.  In an attempt to participate in his circle I told him about a great business idea an aquantence of mine had, it was a Million dollar idea!  As I was giving him the overview, he stopped me in mid-sentence.  He interrupted and asked me a question; “how much money does your friend make” he asked.  I replied that he made over $150,000 a year.  He then looked at me and said, if your friend knew how to make a Million dollars, he would be a Millionaire.  He then went on to explain to me about advice and mentors.  He told me that if I wanted to make $150K/year that my friend could certainly tell me how to do that, but he doesnt know how to make a Million dollars a year.  He then cautioned me about taking advice from people who have not done it already, and people who are not where you want to be.  He advised me to seek out counsil and advice from educated, experienced, and proven men.  

     This conversation drastically changed my life forever.  From that point onward I saught out advice from those who have already accomplished what I am trying to do.  Talk about a shortcut.  A surefire way to the top as fast as you can go.   Learn from the mistakes of others, and follow the proven formulas for success in whatever category of your life that is.  Of course this is not to say that common people in our lives have nothing to offer.  They may indeed have some great ideas; however actual implimentation of those ideas into monetary success are two different things.

     I have said this for years:  “Wall Street University is the most expensive education that you can buy”.  

The sheer percentage of people who lose money in the markets is astounding!  Your odds of actually making a profit trading securities to any mesure of real useable equity growth is extremely low.  By this I am saying that most people will lose money trading securities.  Those who do manage to make money do not make an amount that could make them a living or provide for a secure future.  There ARE people who make money in investments as a living.  They are very few in comparison.  If you wish to enter the world of investments and securities, do not waste your money paying Wall Street University tuition, learn from those who actually make enough money to produce the same results you are looking for.  

     Much of the “investment” and advice we get on money is stemmed from our Great Depression.  People still dont trust banks, how many times have you heard saying such as “rich people are greedy” “save your money” “the rich keep getting richer and we just get poorer” “start a savings” and the plethora of other sayings that we have heard from childhood?  These sayings are all stated by people in our lives that really dont have money.  “Money is the root of all evil”.  “money cant buy happiness”.

     The world is full of accomplishers.  People who have realized their goals and dreams.  Those who have found the path to success.  We Do Not need to reinvent the wheel.  Invention is wonderful and that is how progress is made.  But most of us are not at that point in our lives.  We are not going to change the world with our innovative ideas until we have gotten our lives and fincances to a point where we can actually impliment those ideas and make them reality.  

     Focus on gaining wealth first.  Do this by following the patterns and practices of those who have gone before you and found the way.  If a trader isnt making money in real time, dont follow his advice.  If an investor isn’t performing at the top of his game dont mimic him.  

     “it takes money to make money”.  How many times have we heard that.  I have another write up on this, but sufice it to say for now that that is what poor people say.  The truth is investing is about making your money work.  The majority of people in this world work for their money.  Sell their time for an hourly rate.  The wealthy make their money work for them.  And they do that through proper investments and strategies.
