Description - Put Options by Jeffrey M. Cohen
Often ignored by investors who see them as complex, aggressive, and risky, options actually are versatile investment tools that provide risk-hedging qualities available in no other investment vehicle. Put options provide investors with an even less risky alternative. A put option contract gives the owner the right to sell a stock at a specified price by a specified date. A put option seller receives a premium from the buyer - on top of any gain the seller makes on the contract. While selling put options isn't a new concept, few people realize the benefits of using put options as an overall investing strategy. And yet, put options can tremendously limit downside risk while providing solid returns. Investors who use a put options strategy can find themselves in positive territory much more often than investors who stick solely to stocks. Put Options outlines a complete framework for using put options to the best advantage. Author Jeffrey Cohen argues that investors could forsake equities all together and rely solely on put options and still beat major indices.
In fact, backtesting reveals that over the past 10 years, Cohen's put options strategy has beat both the DJIA and the S&P 500. This strategy, which Cohen terms the "SafetyNet" strategy, is designed to provide reasonable annual returns of 15 percent to 25 percent regardless of the market - whether it's flat, down, or up. For investors who suffer sleepless nights from the extreme volatility seen in markets today, the SafetyNet strategy is the perfect antidote. Inside of sidestepping the minefields of volatility, this approach takes advantage of it. Put Options shows investors how to increase the probability of making winning trades, protect themselves from major market corrections, reduce overall risk, and significantly increase the likelihood of making money, even when the market is flat. Put Options offers investors another alternative. For readers looking for solid returns year after year, the SafetyNet put options strategy is the perfect method. Put Options will show readers how to: Increase your odds of successful trading; Make the most of leverage; Use the support level to place the put position; American investors have lost more than USD 5 trillion in the post-boom years.
Put Options provides them with a perfect alternative to that downside risk.
