Chart Information:

Positive or Negative refers to the stock price today relative to the stock price on the date recommendation was made. This does not take into account the changes in option prices as there are many variables affecting the option price (including: time deterioration, change in volatility, relationship to strike price, etc...).

For CALLS, if the stock price is above the stock price on the date recommended, then it would be POS.

For PUTS, if the stock price is below the stock price on the date recommended, then it would be POS.

Each new recommendation will start as a NEG as the price is NOT above the price recommended (this also reflects the reality that there is a difference between Bid and ASK prices that must be overcome on each purchase before a trade becomes profitable).

History Reported Here

For this history, I have only included those recommendations made through the HubPages blog (so only those from March 28, 2015, forward).

Table limit is 100 Rows, so history is reported in multiple tables.

Selection Strategy - Expiration

In general, most selections are for an option contract that does not expire for at least 4 weeks. By choosing an expiration at least 4 weeks out, you will pay more for the option than if you select an expiration that is closer in time. However, by choosing an expiration a little further out, you can reduce your risk and you can overcome not getting the exact right entry point.


Selection Strategy - Strike Price

Generally recommendations will be for a strike price that is AT THE MONEY, or just OUT OF THE MONEY. By choosing a strike price close to the current stock price, you begin to see movement of your option price sooner than if you select an option price further out of the money.
