Another low-volume week, so a good time to review.
Last Tuesday, we went over our Top Trade Ideas from Q1 of last year and we had one loser and 15 winners with a net of $271,087 in profits over the past 18 months (or less). A few of them are even good for new trades – even now – like Viacom (VIAC), which had another 100% left to gain as of last Tuesday at net $10,100 and now it's $13,800 so up $3,700 (37%) in a week is not bad for a leftover, is it?
Again, you don't need to make short-term trades in dangerous momentum stocks to make fantastic short-term money. Using our system, it's just as exciting when a value stock pops – even when we have long-term contracts on them.
The difference is we aren't taking those huge short-term risks that can damage your portfolio. When something unforseen happens, we can ride it out. Remember, Top Trade Alerts are trades we feel have a very strong chance of success. Generally we pick them because they have both a long-term macro trend in their favor as well as upcoming catalysts and, as alwasy – first and foremost we're looking for VALUE.
For the LTP:
- Sell 5 CMCSA 2022 $30 puts for $5 ($2,500)
- Buy 15 CMCSA 2022 $30 calls for $8.25 ($12,375)
