Trading Thesis

Technical analysis and indicator based trading tend to use past price performance in order to predict important price levels today.

This analysis is based on the current option open interest. With that option open interest, it calculates portfolio-level greeks--notably Delta and Gamma. More importantly, once the portfolio level greeks are established, I can now simulate the change in greeks at different price points. From there, I can find the price levels where portfolio-level gamma is the highest, and the portfolio-level delta is close to 0.

For some tickers, the underlying price reacts strongly off of delta neutral, gamma max, and sometimes both.

It's the reaction off of these price levels in the past that is being used to drive trading signals.

The plays and target entry prices given are calculated using a binomial option pricing model that reflect the expected size and duration of the reaction from gamma max or delta neutral. A lot of these plays are profitable by underlying moves in stock. The best plays benefit from the directional move as well as the increase in IV.

Notes

  • If the price has moved past the entry price, exercise caution. Someone knows something that I don't know.
  • Look to sell half your position on a double, and freeroll the rest to exit at your discretion.
  • I tend to risk up to 1% of my total capital on any trades I take. If my conviction is lower, I'll only allocate 0.5% or even 0.25% of my capital to the trade, and dollar cost average in.
  • The trades were calculated before market open, and so are based on information up to yesterday. Keep that in mind when deciding to enter well after the fact.

FAQ

  • These plays are mostly puts. Are you a gay bear?
    • No. It so happens that the companies have had some recent run-up which implies they are overextended. These trades are primarily some form of mean-reversion either toward or away from an important price level.
  • Are you entering all these plays?
    • No. There have been a dearth of plays in the WSB morning talks, and so I opened up my bag of tools slightly wider to point out more plays with a probable edge to help lead apes to more gain porn.

This is terrible cherry-picked advice that takes absolutely nothing into consideration about the winners that you would have also bought given a wide breadth of market drawdowns. Spreading your bets amongst things that were beaten down collectively: Nortel, RIM, AMZN, WM, IBM, CSCO, XOM, AAPL, MSFT, MMM, HON, MRK, MO results in an entirely different outcome. Heck, $1k in AAPL in 2001 is worth over $600k today. Exxon Mobil? That same 1k is worth 4.3k today; Honeywell? $6.9k; 3M? $3.6k; MSFT? $20k; AMZN? Well over $160k on your $1k investment.

Your example of a person picking 2 stocks that failed is illogical. A person who's picking stocks would also have picked some of the "hot names" which is what I included in the list above (3M, Cisco, IBM, Honeywell, etc. were all popular back in 2000). Likely what would have happened is that you would have lost on Nortel, RIM, Webvan, and stuff like that. You would have also gained on a few of the other companies you invested in.

In times of sweeping drawdowns, picking good companies with strong balance sheets is usually an OK position to be in, especially if your horizon is measured in a 10 year window.

I'd rather TMO, ABBV, DHR or LLY than MRK. Apple and Google are fine - I'd rather MSFT than Google - but I don't know if I'd call these "slow." Ad-focused Google is also quite sensitive to the economy as ad spend is going to head South into any recession. ASML I like but again, it becomes what is your definition of "slow growth" - I don't think ASML is aggressive growth, but it's not slow. V is fine, but you are going to have periods of uproar and regulatory risk and you're seeing that again lately with calls to new regulations and retailers once again trying to press for alternatives.

From healthcare, I do really like JNJ, MRK, and LLY. And yeah I had a bunch of KO that I sold earlier in the year (same reasoning of getting too overvalued). Do think COST is closer to a real entry point compared to the others.

I would think this would literally "spin off." Look up on google how this sometimes happens. Usually shares of the new company are created and they divide the existing stock by some factor to make up for it, and you find new tickers in your portfolio. This happened to me when Merck spun-off Organon in 2021. The spin-off ratio was 1:10, implying each MRK shareholder received one share of Organon common stock for every ten shares of MRK's common stock.

The best companies in the SP500 are a good place to start. AAPL, MSFT, AMZN, GOOGL, TSLA, BRK.B, UNH, JNJ, JPM, PG, V, MA, HD, LLY, ABBV, BAC, COST, TMO, MRK, AVGO, ORCL, AMD, INTU, BLK, NOW, CB, WM, EQIX, ICE…Some people say that’s redundant I’d you hold SP500 index funds. But the top companies in the SP500 provide an outsized portion of the gains compared to other companies. So, in theory, you increase your odds of beating the market by holding the best individual stocks.

Thanks for the reply. He didn’t specify that he was chasing top performers though.

Outperformance with individual securities can be continual over an extended period of time. Costco, for example has a 13% CAGR for the past 36 years. UNH runs at a 24% CAGR year over year (30 years and counting).

Using your idea to buy the large companies as a standalone thing carries quite a bit of risk but has also generally outperform (eg MCD, WMT, BMY, KO, HAL, GE, PG, MRK, DIS, TXN, IBM in an equally weighted basket); of course you’re going to capture some duds in there too (I’ve explored this with the Nifty 50 stocks as well, and including bankruptcies you still end up ahead with monthly contributions vs simply buying the index). Commissions wouldn’t have made buying 50 assets at a time viable previously, so the mentioned strategy would never have been executed in practice.

One basket that I actually run which has outperformed for the past 28 years is simply: MSFT, INTU, and WM.

We will see how it does in the future.

Good luck with your investments too!

If you are from the US and haven't done so, then maxing out i-bonds first seems like a good option.

> I don’t think I’ve made a ton of good choices lately

One option would always be to stop playing the stock picking game and choosing to go with a broad market index fund. hard to (risk adjusted) beat the market long term.

> Trying to diversify > Should I continue just putting cash into these stocks or is there something else I should be doing? > NVDA PXD APPL MRK RBLX SOFI

What have you been doing so far? If those are your current choices, then putting more money into them would not be diversifying.

To me the first questions would always be what are your goals and time horizon. Then decide on asset allocation and how much risk you want to take. Make a core investment based on a broad market index fund or at least safer stock choices like Brk.b appl msft goog and so on. And after that decide what percentage you want to invest in riskier choices with the hope to outperform.

Stock selection, diversification, not being greedy collecting premiums, and position sizing is key for this strategy to work. 8-12% is achievable, and not out of the ordinary. Blue chips like KO and BX I'm able to sometimes get 20-30%, but it takes good timing. Stick with blue chips, indexes, KO, NVDA, MSFT, MRK,AAPL, BX, SPY, QQQ, XLE. Avoid the high premiums that will trap you with money losing, no revenues, long duration, speculative stocks.

When you are taking about great companies, PE, EPS, PB mean much less. Those number, in the long run, were immaterial to GOOGL, MSFT, AAPL, CB, UNP, WM, UNH, AMZN, LLY, MRK, BRB.B, and many others. We don’t know what’s going to happen in the future, but I’m going to guess they’ll still be around and their stock prices will go up long term. If you pick great company, it makes everything a lot easier.

I feel like a lot of people are probably smart enough but the lack the patience and fortitude....

2020 tested me as I went into it and was down over 1M$ when covid started... But I had just sold 8 rentals in December, so we bought a new primary residence that doubled from march 2020, and that year and rolled it all into stocks that are paying healthy dividends... Costco, ITW, ABBV, MRK, NOC etc. This year I will pass 80K in income that takes almost no work. I don't freak out when they tick down 10% or tick up 10%. I don't have dead beats calling me at 2AM about the hot water heater not working. I also have a portfolio with a .88 beta so it doesn't swing wildly.

Individua stocks aren't necessarily bad, but speculating on money losing start ups isn't the way to go.

As a retiree, you should be looking at (1) capital preservation, and (2) income. This means that any stock investments should be concentrated in sectors like regulated utilities (like FE, AEP, DUK, etc), consumer staples (PEP, PG, CAG, KHC), medical (CVS, PFE, MRK), big name financiias (C, JPM, PRU, MET), maybe some energy (XOM, CVX, EOG), and maybe some big cap tech for a little bit of growth (GOOGL, AMZN, QCOM).

Being in stable, mostly dividend paying, companies like these will give you a much less volatile portfolio, and give you a consistent stream of dividends that you can live off of.

I’m not going to sugar coat it like others here have, your behind. The more you save while you’re young, the more years of compounding interest you have ahead of you.

Since you mentioned you don’t know what people have saved around your age, I’ll share. I am 28 years old, with over $300k saved. I have a short term goal of hitting $500k by 30.

I learned several years ago, after many bad choices on my post, to save as much as possible while I was still young. As a general rule, your investments should return 9-10% a year (S&P 500/tot stock mrk fund), accounting for inflation, you should see at least a 7% real return. So $200k @30 years old will be 400k @ 40, 800k @ 50, 1.6m @ 60… this is all in 2022 dollars.

So if you’re looking for a goal, or trying to go above and beyond, as I have…shoot for $200k @ 30. You’ll completely fund your retirement and you can focus on other things or working towards an earlier retirement after meeting this initial goal.

And to be far, you aren’t behind exactly in terms of the general population, but you’re behind in becoming a PAW. I won’t tell you what that means, but I will recommend you read The Millionaire Next Door.

I asked my stockbroker about this, because I own 3M, too. 3M ($MMM) shareholders will receive shares of Neogen ($NEOG). It doesn't sound like anything has to be requested. I didn't ask him about the other details, but the stock price of other companies I've held hasn't changed much after spinoffs ($MRK & $OGN). The applicable segment of 3M is something like 2% or less of sales, as I recall.

If it's only 9%, and investment-grade bonds to boot, a pension for that portion might make sense, although I don't know anything about pensiosn. Your stock allocation is pretty good. Merck ($MRK) is my third largest holding (3.81%) and I don't think they're going bankrupt.

I am wondering if I should just focus on ETFs or individuals stocks. Also what would be hard to manage in terms of # of stocks in my portfolio.

I plan to invest 20k now and then 2k per month.

Big fan of dividends here. ABT lacks in that category. In terms of medicinal companies, ABT is lacking compared to the likes of jnj, MRK. I’ve considered adding ABT for the reasons you’ve mentioned, but I have finite cash (lol) and I determined it was better deployed elsewhere overall.

First, I have to let you know that I only started investing in 2019 so I haven’t been around in 2008, 2000, etc.

I’ll do each stock in order of how much I own.

GOOGL- Wide moat, historic low P/E, only thing I don’t like is the P/S ratio on this stock.

WIRE- does exactly what it sounds like, has 0 debt, has a historically low P/E

RS- Aluminum and steel

AMD- Semiconductors, I like how they have very low debt, also their CEO has been doing a great job. I have to say that QCOM and TSM may be even better picks

PFE- Healthcare, they have a good dividend and a good P/E ratio. MRK is another good healthcare stock.

85% equities, 10% Bonds, 5% Cash.

The simple answer is the cash is used to send myself a "paycheck" every month to my checking account which I use to pay bills and don't have to think about the market. The much longer answer is below.

I try to never get below 18 months cash (at full spending level), thats 24 months cash you cut out travel/eating out and 2.5+ years if you stop Roth conversions which would increase ACA subsidy and cut the tax bill to basically zero.

Cash is manually added to at the beginning of each year once I have figured out my budget and tax plan for the year. I look ahead for any big items in the next 2 years, so I need to replace the car next year, so I 'll start taking extra out now.

Cash is automatically replenished during the year with dividends/cap gains, CDs maturing, etc. I do have a pension that pays a whopping $170/month no COLA for life and I usually make $2-5k/yr pet sitting and other short term, minimal commitment type odd jobs.

Between tax planning and re-allocating I figure out what I will sell to replenish the cash. Plus I do quarterly reviews for any re-allocation mid year.

I do most of the selling around jan 15th of each year, but I will leave wiggle room in the tax plan just in case there is exceptionally high cap gains in a fund and will do final sales at the end of the year once those area all known to max optimize the 12% bracket.

As I do hold individual stock, even in bad times, there are always winners. LLY is 20% YTD, MRK is up 18% YTD. LLY went over 5% of my brokerage account so during last quarterly review I had to trim her back. With recession looming i just left it in cash rather than re-investing.

Ehhhhh.....

AAPL is carrying the SPY and QQQ, but energy, defensives, and medicals are the ones actually lifting the index up.

JNJ up 3%. MRK up 22%. XOM up 35%. CVX up 16%. LMT 13%. NOC 19%.

There is a lot of valuable discussion at /dividends.

Note, just because a stock pays and grows their dividends does not mean it doesn't grow.

Should I take some profit by selling ABBV (4% of my portfolio, +60% unrealized gain) and MRK (3% of my portfolio, +45% unrealized gain)? I would still keep VTRS (1% of portfolio) as my only pharmaceutical play. The rest of my portfolio kinda sucks, I would use the cash from abbv and mrk to begin s shift towards more etfs

That’s a long time for a thesis to hold up. But if I were picking stocks for that long of a timeframe, I’d probably pick MA, B, AXP, WM, HD, COST,
ORCL, GOOGL, MSFT, MRK, LLY, CB, UNH, ANTM, NVDA, AMD, ASML, among others.

As I mentioned I recently bot 13 and 26 wk maturity T-bills. But I buy safety names (not ETFs) on weeks like this, so defense contractors like LMT (US gov is a good customer lol), staples like ADM, KR, HSY, PG, WMT, energy (bought BOIL yesterday, sold today lol), and lots of healthcare names like UNH, BMY, ABBV, MRK. Bought MRNA yesterday, sold today lol. I always buy BRK/B as a pairs trade with SPY when it's underperforming, but I have had A shares for many years, so it's a small trade.

Also bought some SMH for a quick trade, but will be out by tomorrow going into next week's earnings.

You buying anything?

If you're looking for long term gains vs dividends, I'd go $2k each in:

GIS PFE AMZN CVS JPM MRK MSFT DIS

All decently valued with reasonable path to continued growth. Only one I'm not sure on is GIS, as it just shot up on an earnings surprise and maybe a tad overpriced atm, but still a good steady grower. This also gives you a reasonable mix of tech, CPG, health/pharma, finance, and media.

Don't listen to all the "index fund people". I don't understand why they even bother posting here if that is the only thing they have to offer over and over again. Index funds are fine, but nothing wrong with focusing on some stalwarts.

Trying to decide how to choose a final healthcare/pharma/bio stock to balance out my portfolio.

Healthcare makes up 18% of my portfolio.

Current holdings: (5%) UNH, (3%) JNJ, (2.5%) PFE, (2.5%) MRK, (2.5%) VRTX

Want to add 2.5% of either: AZN or REGN.

Both seem strong, but leaning towards REGN based on it being potentially undervalued by comparison. Any thoughts? Also any other suggestions besides these two? BMY also crossed my mind.

I am looking for growth at a reasonable price. Risk tolerance moderately low for this sector.

Thanks in advance.

MRK, CLF, QCOM puts all sold. Done for the day and sitting on a pretty nice chunk of cash.

I bought 10k worth of MRK & CRM calls based on volume/OI before close

I also have a bunch of August SPY puts and UVXY / SQQQ calls that are all -30% to -50% losses

Which one of these will go green first? Place your predictions without spending a single Unicorn!

When the % is over 100 for vol/oi, do you usually see these print? Is over 100 common? CRM is way above the next one which is MRK at like 40

As previously mention, S&P Index all the way.

I do like a few in your portfolio for the long term: GOOGL, AAPl, C.

I'd ditch CS, Coats, Boohoo and NFLX (IMO, it may go the route of Blockbuster).

I think there are some good sale prices like MSFT and some good values like MRK and PFE. Play the long game, reinvest your dividents.

>Has beat the market in every time frame and still does.

Has underperformed the index and many pharma companies from 2007 to 2013, so basically during and coming out of the GFC.

22% CAGR going back to 1990 is great, but it means nothing going forward.

​

>What does the largest healthcare company have going for itself?

Many mature/large companies don't go anywhere near beating the index. So yes, what has it got going for itself? And what has it got going for itself that puts it above PFE or MRK or JNJ?

Why all of them at 4% though? Surely some positions are riskier than others, or some you're not as confident in as in others.

What made you choose MRK over PFE?
