  • 1. All About Stock Options

    1. All About Stock Options

    My goal is to give you a basic understanding of what stock options are all about without hopelessly confusing you with unnecessary details. I have read dozens of books on stock options, and even my eyes start glazing over shortly into most of them.

  • 2. Check Out Auto-Trade

    2. Check Out Auto-Trade

    Auto-Trade is a service offered by several on-line brokers. Auto-Trade makes it possible for an investor to carry out an options strategy in his own account without becoming an options guru or making all the trades on his or her own.

  • 3. Never Buy a Mutual Fund

    3. Never Buy a Mutual Fund

    Never buy a mutual fund unless it is a no-load index fund with the lowest cost structure. (I will tell you where to find it later.)

  • 4. Turbocharge Your IRA

    4. Turbocharge Your IRA

    Most smart people have set up a Roth IRA, 401(k), or other qualified retirement program. For some of them, it may be the only stock market investment they own.

  • 5. Double Your Money the Lazy Way

    5. Double Your Money the Lazy Way

    In spite of the odds against winning, many people seem to like to invest in individual stocks – sort of like picking horses at the race track.

  • 6. The 10K Strategy

    6. The 10K Strategy

    The 10K Strategy is my favorite investment strategy. I have used it to make an average of over 50% a year for three out of four consecutive years. I have now added a twist to the strategy so that annual returns might be less than those years but there should be a much higher likelihood of its succeeding.

  • 7. Trading ETF Options

    7. Trading ETF Options

    Exchange-Traded Funds, or ETFs, are index funds that trade just like stocks on major stock exchanges. All the major stock indexes have ETFs based on them, including: Dow Jones Industrial Average (DIA), Standard & Poor's 500 Index (SPX), and Nasdaq 100 Composite (QQQQ).

Floor & Decor Holdings (FND) Is Set To Grow

This week we are featuring another of the Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) Top 50 List companies. We use this list in one of our portfolios to spot outperforming stocks and place spreads that take advantage of the momentum. The 10 actual option portfolios carried out by Terry's Tips for its paying subscribers have gained an average of 108% for 2017. This is down a little from a few weeks ago because many of the tech stocks that we trade options on have fallen over the past few weeks. We are still pleased with the composite results, however. (One of our newest portfolios adds the Trading Idea of the Week that we send out to you each week to its holdings).

Facebook (FB): Time to Buy The Dip?

This week we are looking at another of the Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) Top 50 List companies. We use this list in one of our portfolios to spot outperforming stocks and place spreads that profit if the momentum continues, at least a little.

The last 12 ideas which we have published here which have expired resulted in 11 gains averaging 39% (including the loss which was only 10% on one of the spreads). If you had invested the same amount in each of the 12 ideas, you would have made 468% on that amount. Of course, we can’t promise that future results will be this great.

Facebook (FB): Time to Buy The Dip?
