Stock Options Tutorials

An Options Tutorial Should be Free:  There are many websites promoting an Options Tutorial which costs big bucks.  You should be able to find a good Options Tutorial for free.  In fact, you have already landed on a FREE Options Tutorial site.  All you have to is read what we have for you.  It should be a good start.

Stock is to Checkers As Options are to Chess:  Investing in stock is a whole lot easier than investing in options.  Investing in stocks is simple.  Just pick a horse and place your bet.  It is a simple game like playing checkers.  Investing in options is a whole lot more complicated – it is more like playing chess.  Options investing can be a life-long learning experience.  

For those of us who love the extra challenge of option investing, it is worth every minute of time you spend.  The rewards of options investing can be far greater than the possible gains of buying or selling stock, but the risks are also greater.  Options are leveraged investments.  Leverage works both ways – it can provide extraordinary gains as well as extraordinary losses.

Obviously, learning all you can about options is essential before you ever invest with real money.  So, where do you start?

Getting Started with your Free Options Tutorial:  We believe that you best bet would be to read every topic listed at Stock Options 101, beginning at the top.  Once you have an understanding of the basic definitions and concepts, your next step might be to sign up for our free weekly newsletter.

In addition to a new options idea sent to you each week you will get a free options report that puts many of the basic options concepts to work in the real world.

Another Interesting Short-Term Play on Aetna (AET)

Ten days ago, I sent you a note showing how you could make 23% on an options spread on Aetna (AET) if the stock closed at any price above $118 today. Back then, it was trading at $122.67. The day is not yet over right now, but AET is trading at $122 with an hour to go until closing, so it seems safe to say that the 23% will be enjoyed by everyone who placed the trade.

Today, I would like to suggest another trade on AET that will end two weeks from today. It will make 40% on . . .

How to Make 30% on 5 Blue-Chip Companies in 2017 Even if They Fall by 10%

Today, we set up a new portfolio at Terry's Tips that I would like to tell you about. It is our most conservative of 9 portfolios. It consists of selecting 5 blue-chip companies which pay a dividend between 2% and 3.6% and which appear on at least two top analysts’ “top 10” lists for 2017. This portfolio is designed to gain 30% for the year, and we can know in advance exactly what each of the 5 spreads will make in advance. For most of these companies, they can fall by 10% over the course of the year and we will still make our 30% gain.

We are also repeating our best-ever offer to come on board before January 11 rolls around.
