    "I think I could make you 50% a year on $1 million...."

    Collars I think I could do it with collars and some leverage. The best part is that I am to the point where I can do it and lock in gains. Little gains compounded are better than big gains with the occasional loss. I have tracked my own data to verify this. Hence, Warren Buffett's rule...

    HOT TOPIC Stock Collars

    Time for Another Update This will probably be a brief update since it is getting late and I don't feel like writing a lot. GG--Basis is now 27.58 with an outstanding call at 40. I have puts with a strike at 36. Clearly I have locked in my profits. I am simply trading up and down adding cash...

    HOT TOPIC Stock Collars

    Well, it has again been awhile since I updated this thread. That doesn't mean, however, that I have given up on collars. It simply means that I have been pretty busy this summer. I think I might finally be getting the hang of investing with the collars and knowing what adjustments to make. I...

    HOT TOPIC Stock Collars

    Thanks, MJ. Again, it has been quite some time since I updated the collar results. I am still trading them, rolling up calls, rolling down calls, buying new puts, etc. I thought I would provide a quick update while I am taking a break from some other things. Retirement Accounts-- GG...

    HOT TOPIC Dow poised for a big drop?

    Hakrjak, Jonleehacker is absolutely correct. Do NOT trade on emotion. Develop a system with rules and stick with it. That system may involve dollar-cost-averaging, value-averaging, index funds, diversification, asset allocation, options, etc. Regardless, figure something logical out and...

    HOT TOPIC Dow poised for a big drop?

    Thursday's action is why I like and use collars in my retirement account. I prefer to hold puts and not stops. I only saw the action after-the-fact since I was travelling with family. I took a small hit in value but that is because I do not have calls sold on everything. In the account...

    HOT TOPIC Stock Collars

    I will post another update a little later since I am still working with and refining my collar strategy. In the meantime, I would like to answer and respond to a question that was posed to me. Here is the question: First of all, let me say that this question is very insightful. I have...

    HOT TOPIC Silver, the Poor Man's Gold

    So, anyone end up buying more? Silver spot is over $17 now and gold spot is over $1140. I have been trading SLW, GG, and AUY using collars. Doing well with GG and SLW. Missed some timing on AUY.

    WEB/DIGITAL Building Virtual Real Estate

    Just a quick update. I am getting a little more traffic gradually on the blog and starting to think about niche sites. I am almost to the point of being able to self fund it so I will likely get started just after the first part of the year. I have a huge work project that I need to get done...

    Sam40, Just click on the "My Blog" link in the signature of this forum. I post every few days at most. I plan on doing an earnings report on a quarterly basis.

    I agree with crystite as well. The next step will be to work on my own niche site in a topic about which I have a passion. The earnings from HubPages, eHow and Xomba will fund that site. I am almost (0.88 away) to my first Google payout. That means I should get a $100 check by the end of...

    WEB/DIGITAL Building Virtual Real Estate

    I thought it would time for a quick update on progress thus far: My tentative income goal for September was $60 for the month (or $2/day). It doesn't look like I will make it, but I have already earned more than last month. I will post my first 4 months of earnings on my blog after...

    55k to invest

    mftps, I would reconsider the market but educate and use puts and collars. You are right that you can't control what a stock will do, but you can control risk.

    Cheap dollars are sowing the seeds of the next world crisis

    agree with you completely, randall I am not "betting the farm" but own a fair amount of CHK which will benefit such a scenario.

    Cheap dollars are sowing the seeds of the next world crisis

    Best to invest in tangible assets now...gold, oil, copper, etc. Have you seen natural gas lately?

    HOT TOPIC Stock Collars

    It's been awhile since I updated this thread so I thought I should do that with the little bit of time I have. GG--Enjoying the run in gold. I have been making adjustments. Sold some shares this week at $43.14. Selling calls and buying back as necessary. Bottom line is that I am holding...

    WEB/DIGITAL Building Virtual Real Estate

    Absolutely, that would be the next step. I do have a plan in early "ether" form. It will probably be awhile still since I am learning and want to build up the income first. But, yes, that is the tentative plan.
