            THE POLITICAL SEESAW:

Political uncertainty has roiled the markets as of late with initial predictions pricing-in a Clinton victory. As election night unfolded and a Trump victory was evident, the markets responded negatively in pre-market trading with the Dow dropping over 700 points. Upon the realization that Trump was in fact the president-elect, the markets bounced back and the Dow ended the day up ~300 points. In particular, healthcare related stocks from pharmaceutical companies...

The staggering costs of higher education are creating a financial barrier to entry for many families. These financial hurdles are at the forefront of parents with young children. Contending with these high costs are challenging for many families that believe paying for these higher education costs is a shared responsibility between the parents and their future college student. Devising a long-term strategy is essential in mitigating the impact of these future higher education costs and subsequent student loan debt. One of the most popular means for earmarking and investing money for future college expenses is in the form of a 529 college savings account. 52...

Introduction:

As corporate America continues to search for creative ways to streamline costs and reduce expenditures pertaining to medical expenses, more companies than ever are offering High Deductible Health Plans (HDHPs) with a companion Health Savings Account (HSA) option. Two-thirds of companies with 1,000 employees or more are offering this HDHP/HSA option. The popularity of the HDHP/HSA combination has increased substantially over the past decade. As of 2014, 17.4 million people were enrolled in HDHP/HSA compared to a mere 3.2 million in 2006, a five-fold increase in just 8 years. In short, a HDHP is a pre-tax medical plan that requires the employee to absorb the cost of medical expenses up front to a defined dollar amount to sat...

Overview:

McKesson recently reported Q2 2017 numbers that missed analysts’ expectations on both EPS and revenue, missing by $0.11 per share and $1.25 billion, respectively. This was the fourth consecutive quarter in which McKesson has missed revenue targets. As a result of the most recent miss, shares of McKesson sank by ~$40 per share or 23% beginning in after-hours trading and through the next trading day (Figure 1). In February I wrote a piece on McKesson stating that I felt McKesson presented a buying opportunity when the stock sank to a 52-week low of $148 per share. As that call began to come to fruition, I wrote a series of follow-up articles voicing caution as the share price appreciated. On March 21st I framed my thesis as bein...

I'm Noah Kiedrowski, founder of Stock Options Dad LLC. Where it's my goal to simplify options trading. Demonstrating how high probability options trading for consistent income thrives in both bear and bull markets. Options enable investors to mitigate risk and circumvent drastic market moves while generating consistent income in a high probability manner.

All of my trades are risk-defined in order to leverage a minimal amount of capital and maximize return on investment. All performance metrics can be found on the PERFORMANCE tab. For any given trade I target an ROI of 7-15% at an ~85% probability of winning the trade at expiration. In doing so, I typically hold ~50% of my portfolio in cash.

I always strive to trade in high implied volatility environments across a wide array of tickers to maximize sector diversity. Trading across uncorrelated tickers and maximizing the number of trades, as part of the 10 OPTIONS TRADING RULES, is essential for long-term success in options trading.

Did you know that a staggering 92% of actively managed funds do not outperform their benchmark over 5, 10 and 15 year time horizons? Interestingly, over a ~25 year time period from 1983-2006, 39% of stocks in the Russell 3000, comprising the largest 3000 companies in the U.S., were unprofitable investments while 64% of stocks underperformed the index. Shockingly, only 25% of stocks were responsible for all the market’s gains from this ~25 year period! Taken together, investors only have a 36% chance of picking a winning stock that may or may not outperform the broader index. Options trading provides a statistical edge in trading that individual stock investing simply can't offer.

To this end, stockoptionsdad.com is a venue I created to share investing ideas and strategies with an emphasis on options trading. My aim is to empower investors and traders alike to leverage options trading as part of an overall investment strategy. I offer many tutorials, ideas, strategies, timely trades and actionable updates for the retail investor. I also offer TRADE SERVICES for those that want to take their options trading to the next level. My goal is to provide real-life examples of options trading from a peer investor in an effort to demonstrate meaningful portfolio returns while mitigating risk and accentuating returns.
