Costco: a Follow Up

December 14, 2019

Why Oh Why, Unbalanced Flies I remember when Henry first started talking about the unbalanced fly — it went right over my head. I thought, “Well, that’s a great strategy for someone like Henry, who’s been doing this twice as long as I have, but it’s too complex for me!” Thankfully, he didn’t stop talking about it, teaching it, and encouraging our traders (and me!) to learn and use this more advanced options strategy.

What’s up with Costco Earnings?

December 12, 2019

Hey Five Star! I’m coming to you from New York City. Last night, I was on “Fast Money”, on the Options Action segment talking about what could potentially happen on Costco earnings today after the close.

December 4, 2019

The formula for success

December 1, 2019

Plus a super special deal As the end of the month draws to a close, I always like to reflect on what’s worked — so that I can do it all again next month.  Some of my biggest winners this month have been several of these names: WMT – 79% gain  TGT – 231% gain ROKU – 69% gain  I always hone in on how I got there, so I can continue to hone my rinse and repeat strategies.  It … Read more
