What Others are Trading – May 2011

Posted by mounddweller on May 1, 2011

Fellow Traders,

Can you believe it?  I’m actually getting this message posted on the first day of the month!  Long time readers know this is a very rare occurrence.  Usually I forget until several days have passed.

Anyway, here’s your chance.  Tell us what is working for you, and what isn’t.

Regards,

Troy

What Others Are Trading – April 2011

Posted by mounddweller on April 15, 2011

Darn!  I messed up.  Here we are already half way through the month and I am just now posting my monthly message for y’all to tell me about what you’re trading.

Well, better late than never I suppose.  Anyone got any trades they want to brag about or lament on?

Fellow Traders,

Here’s your chance to brag about your winning strategies and trades or lament about your losses.  Rich, you didn’t even need to remind this month to start the new post.  Let’s see if I can make it two months in a row in April (ha ha).

Rich’s INTC Trade

Posted by mounddweller on December 4, 2010

All,

A first for The Money Tree blog.  I am posting a message on someone elses trade.  My investing buddy, Rich shared with me his INTC trade.   His results todate are superb.  Thus, I want to share them with you.

Rich’s strategy has been to sell OTM puts every month on INTC.  His objective is to use other people’s money to eventually buy INTC stock.  He started in January, buying 100 shares of INTC and then selling a CC against those shares.  From that point on Rich has been aggressively selling OTM puts, using the resulting cash flow to reduce his cost basis on his 100 shares.  As of today he has generated $1,867.25.  He only needs another $215.75 to own his 100 shares of INTC free and clear.  His rate of return on the average amount of invested capital used in selling the cash secured puts is 8.58%.  Below is a Rich’s complete INTC transaction history.

Way to go Rich!

Regards,

Troy

What Others Are Trading – December 2010

Posted by mounddweller on December 3, 2010

All,

Sorry for the delay in getting this message posted.  I see dealmakr posted a couple messages about his recent trades under my MYGN trade.  Any other trades out there folks want to share?  Here’s your opportunity.  Just post a comment to this message.

Regards,

Troy
