https://www.investopedia.com/terms/d/dividend.asp

Dividends have three key dates: declaration, record (related to ex-date), and payment. On the declaration, the company is announcing the amount of dividend they will be paying per share. For example, Realty Income Corp (O), declared a dividend of .2475 on 8/16. The record date will be 9/1/22 - this is the day that O will actually record all the shares due a dividend. Ex-dates are typically one business day before the record date, and if you purchase a stock on it's ex-date (or after), you will not get a dividend for the upcoming payment period. The payment date for O was listed as 9/15/22. This is the date you will actually get your dividend.

You can receive dividends in cash or have them reinvested through what is called a DRIP (dividend reinvestment plan) which will take your dividend and automatically reinvest it into the company that paid you at the current market price of the stock.

Dividends can be qualified or unqualified. This is tax implications - google for more information.

Dividends can be a good way to build passive income, but be mindful of how you got about it. A good strategy for dividends is to invest with them in something like a ROTH IRA where dividend contributions will be tax free.

Also, a dividend with a very high yield is typically a company that has a very high amount of risk. There are some legacy players like VZ, T, Altria, and oil companies that have very high yields, but consider the current economic environment as it relates to some of these companies.

Dividends are not guaranteed and in times of economic distress can be cut. If you're looking to invest in a company that has a dividend yield, I would look at their payout history and possibly just refer to the lists of dividend kings and aristocrats - companies that have increased their payout annually for like 50 years minimum. A lot of these are legacy corps like Pepsi, United Health, Coke, etc. but they are mature, stable, and very unlikely to lose all your principle relative to something like an mREIT that has a lot of risk relative to market conditions.

Most dividend stocks I invest in have yields of 2.5% to 4% (UL, KO, PEP, GPC, O, PFE, etc).

I think Ford may be a good choice given it’s ridiculously low P/E. I’m not gonna say that it will be seeing $20 again anytime soon but ~$14 is very reasonable.

Pfizer is another. Low P/E, shitloads in revenue (just signed a deal with the U.S. Army for $4 billion which might not hit the books until 2023), $30 billion in cash, new acquisitions for future growth, etc. Already seeing some recovery. Biggest problem with PFE is the super high float.

TSM - revenue continues to grow, basically a monopoly in Taiwan, plus they supply other companies like AMD and NVDA. No, China isn’t going to invade Taiwan, at least not for years especially now that they know Russia isn’t reliable for military assistance. Also has piles of cash. IMO, TSMC is the backbone of much of the semiconductor industry. Another company with a high float… i did just read an article from March 2020 that said TSM was a no brainer buy and it was at like $130.

Intel - 2 words: CHIPS Act. 2 more words: P/E ratio = 6. Fucking 6. I wouldn’t expect this to skyrocket but it seems impossible for it to not see another few dollars at least in the near future.

These are some of the plays I’m making with near the money Call options with exp dates ranging from Jan 2023 - Jan 2024. I’ve been losing money the last couple days on them but there is still plenty of time and premium to see a really nice return with minimal gains, assuming it doesn’t take a year to get there which I REALLY do not think will be the case.

20 years old, just got into stocks within the past two years, looking for help consolidating my portfolio

PFE - 4.02% AAPL - 4.68% MSFT - 4.11% GOOG - 3.83% AMZN - 4.10% DIS - 3.92% V - 4.51% BRK.B - 3.91% PG - 4.50% JNJ - 4.58% HD - 4.09% VTI - 4.38% NVDA - 2.91% AMD - 3.51% BA - 3.86% MCD - 5.30% PEP - 5.04% KO - 4.77% UNH - 5.02% WMT - 4.34% JPM - 4.23% GE - 3.38% NFLX - 3.34% META - 3.65%

realized the “one of everything” approach isn’t as efficient as I first thought, and would like advice on which ones to liquidate in favor of other, better long term investments. thank you!

It's interesting here. You state you WANT to buy it at $100. Joe Schmoe and his brothers (and sisters) then point out that it could go to 80, or 70, (based on THEIR forward looking prediction, which YOU didn't really ASK about). You want it at 100, cool. a CSP is a good idea while waiting for that price. Reap some cash if it doesn't get there. I can NOT imagine AMZN going much farther down. Perhaps I'm naive, but I don't get off by just owning PFE and F and GM and T. I own big cap tech, have ridden the roller coaster yes, but am selling CCs and CSPs on all of them and rolling as necessary. That's just me. I've been able to collect PLENTY of premium for income this year. Been assigned? Sure. Gone ITM for weeks and rolling till things improve? Been there. Shlt happens. Do your thing and learn from successes and mistakes.

Feel like the governments around the world are the ones who pushed it the hardest to be “Covid vaccine” instead of “Covid shot” cause the reality is it works like the flu shot not a vaccine. By all means get puts but I think PFE gonna trade in a very small range for the considerable future barring non Covid related news.

I'm long PFE. Also a big fan of their work. In April I noticed a news item that they were testing a Lyme disease vaccine and in phase two trials. My brief note said that it showed a response in kids over five. If this vaccine is successful it would be huge in the northeastern United States. And it might offer opportunities for other tick-borne illnesses.

INTC has an awful lot to prove. And, on the day the CHIPS act was announced, INTC both CUT their investment in the planned OH facility and increased their dividend. I think Gelsinger believed the stock would skyrocket on the OH and CHIPS act. I keep thinking they're gonna get bought. If not, they're gonna be the PFE of chips. So, No bueno.

Find the antibody critical threshold using the half life equation:

Nt = No × (0.5) ^ ( t / tHalf)

Nt = 100 × (0.5) ^ (90 / 27)

Nt = 10 (10% of antibodies provided by natural infection)

Find the vaccine lifetime, given 4x antibodies induced by vaccine:

10 = 400 × (0.5) ^ (t / 27)

t = 143 days

But the new vaccine is a 50/50 mix like it was crafted by a bearded 23 year old hipster bartender at applebees.

That means the new equation is this.

10 = 200 × (0.5) ^ (t / 27)

10 / 200 = (0.5) ^ (t / 27)

Ln(10/200) = (t/27) * ln(0.5)

(27 * ln(10/200))/ln(0.5) = t

t = 116 days

  • WMT 10/21 135C for $2.85 or less

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.

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. Go through this curated list of plays, pick the ones you like based on whatever additional analysis you use, and get that gain porn.

Interesting, I didn't realize MRNA is demanding compensation from PFE over this lawsuit, the headlines said they weren't. They are not in the 93 countries where vaccine access is still hard but they are in the US.

Everything is priced in.

Don't even ask the question. The answer is yes, it's priced in. Think Amazon will beat the next earnings? That's already been priced in. You work at the drive thru for Mickey D's and found out that the burgers are made of human meat? Priced in. You think insiders don't already know that? The market is an all powerful, all encompassing being that knows the very inner workings of your subconscious before you were even born. Your very existence was priced in decades ago when the market was valuing Standard Oil's expected future earnings based on population growth that would lead to your birth, what age you would get a car, how many times you would drive your car every week, how many times you take the bus/train, etc. Anything you can think of has already been priced in, even the things you aren't thinking of. You have no original thoughts. Your consciousness is just an illusion, a product of the omniscent market. Free will is a myth. The market sees all, knows all and will be there from the beginning of time until the end of the universe (the market has already priced in the heat death of the universe). So please, before you make a post on wsb asking whether PFE has priced in FDA approval or whatever, know that it has already been priced in and don't ask such a dumb fucking question again.

Very similar philosophy but need the options income, kids still on the payroll. Had some unfortunate assignments but in balance been able to Roll out of situations not to my liking. What other stocks are you holding that you believe are good value for the long run and have high sustainable dividends? I'm heavily in pharma with ABBV, GILD, GSK, PFE plus some interesting Energy (SHEL, VLO, MLPX) and some small cap (TRTN, APAM) finally basic Financials (BNS, C).

I agree with this. The only slight counter argument to that is some people truly want to hedge their existing gains and that's where I think potential money is with a bit of knowledge, the right temperament, and admittedly a bit of luck. Also some of these losers are actual market makers themselves(on any individual trade)

For example when VTI was just above 200 I sold a 200 strike VTI put JAN 2024 f or 2100 on around May 2-4th. I late used those funds to leverage myself in equities because I plan on that expiring worthless and due to having margin available don't have to put up capital in return; If it's not worthless I have plenty of room too roll it out another year and leverage those funds. I could kick this can down the road forever if I never wanted it to expire and never wanted it to be assigned.

However, buying options with the hopes of a profit is much more of a crap shoot. I almost entirely sell options on things I wouldn't mind owning if shit hits the fan. Premiums for puts are almost always more attractive than premiums from calls.

It's a zero sum game but the agility/lack of many liquidity constraints on even obscure options for the retail investor I think makes it possible to turn a profit, not month over moth, or even quarter from quarter, but year over year writing puts against <20% of your marginable securities with significant disposable income cash flow to cover the rare assignment t hat you want to keep and not immediately sell back for the difference between market price and strike price-premium if held to expiration.

I still agree with your underlying statements to focus on equities and fixed income, as it's not a zero sum game like options.

Some current puts I have written. I'll roll out anything if need be for as long as possible. I probably will thank my new job when I find it because they'll likely not allow a margin account- selling these cash secured changes this has to be an absolute dreadful tactic

PFE 47.50 DEC 2022 for 2.65 ------>44.75 assignment price

VZ 45 NOV 2022 for 2.74 ------> 42.25 assignement price

VTI 200 JAN 2024 for 20.50 -------> 179.50 assignment price

BAC 32 OCT 2022 for 1.25

BP SEP 23 28 put for 2.25

T 18 put NOV 2022 for .83 -----> 17.23 assignement price.

I know when I eventually have a significantly losing position the loss will be large and so I'm aware of the dangers; good education isn't cheap.

RSV is the next big one. It's a serious illness and affects a lot of kids. I'd be surprised if daycares don't mandate it once it is available. Will be the same 3 going after the market: PFE JNJ MRNA.

But there's no more edge on the technology -everyone big is going to be doing the same approach. So, it's likely they are shopping for companies to acquire with novel approaches that will augment business lines.

&#x200B;

With biotechs on sale, it's a good time for them to put the cash to work. That usually causes share price to dip as they spend, but if they pick the right ones, long term it could be huge for them. AZN does a high amount of acquisitions and they have an incredible drug pipeline because of it.

Yes then, The current price of PFE is also a bubble. This stock will soon drop to the price just before the pharmaceutical bubble. It will be below $30 by the end of the year.

Okay I guess I'm feeling this way since I was laid off. I'd like to note I have a margin account that I use to sell naked options on high div. large caps that are slightly out of the money 90 days to expiration like vz put 45 for 2.76 November 18, Pfe put 47.5 for 2.5, Pfe put 50 for 3, VTI put 200 for 2100 although its until january 2024(will close early for long term gain, currently +500 on it)

I just roll out anything that is significantly tested for more premium and apply it to only dividend stocks in favorable conditions based on yield on assignment. I've yet to be assigned anything, but may take on 200 shares of Altria around basis and just turn around and sell them for a roughly net wash, possibly keeping the shares I can pay for from premiums collected. This further complicates my idea of what I need for cash flow since I'm prepared to eventually jolf modest amounts of margin for assignments from time to time.

I am accredited through my FINRA licensing so I'm hoping my amplified gains are due to not only circumstance but partially due to knowledge as well.

I'll probably be required to reduce or eliminate all margin based trades with my next job. Currently have around 500 a week of unemployment and looking for jobs paying between 50 and 75k.

I'm just feeling uncertain right now dealing with my unemployment again after COVID, but selling a few naked puts on indexes and large, stable balance sheet dividend companies(3% or more) with the willingness to close immediately upon assignment for a loss if it happens can't be living life too on the edge given an opportunity to take risk?

I appreciate your insight. I'll keep more on the aggressive side and tread carefully with options, especially those with loss potential significantly in excess of premium(volatile stocks)

In USD I am 10.3% plus in my gambler portfolio and 4.02% plus on my DGI portfolio this year so far. XIRR return for the gambler portfolio since 2019 is 22.3%, for DGI since 2014 it is 10.41% (in USD).

Awesome post here!! Can you make more posts like this?!? I made 45% gain pumping/dumping PFE 50c’s today. Holding onto ABBV for 150 target. Bought puts in HPQ. NVDA and AAPL have already said laptop sales will be way down this year. Puts on Macy’s and BAC. There’s a chance Macy’s could have decent earnings but inflation could be eating into their margins or causing a slow down in sales.

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 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.
  • 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.

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.

U said PFE is doing awful and pinpoint the only other time in history where they were close to the share price not even looking at the 20 years in between seeing the decline then rise acknowledging you would still be positive

And for Moderna, 1 year is not a long-term time frame, this post is about long term smh

I'm going to be buying more BLUE. FDA decision on Beti-cel treatment on 8/19 with an FDA advisory panel unanimously recommending approval, FDA decision on 9/16 with another FDA panel unanimously recommending approval! Then, God willing, PFE or another pharma big boy will come in and buy out BLUE for like 20x the price!

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.

It is hard for me to give a definitive yes or no, as I do not know what % of your portfolio this will be, or your overall situation. How long would you plan to hold the stocks/ETF?

Look at something like the S&P 500. The current top 5 holdings are AAPL, MSFT, AMZN, FB, GOOG.

In the year 2000 the top 5 were GE, XOM, PFE, C, MSFT.

Only 1 company stayed in the 2 decades that have passed.

I wouldn't invest in stocks just because they are the top holding of an ETF currently. A lot can change in 2 decades, and the ETF will adapt to that change.

I don't invest in AAPL because it's the top company in the S&P 500, I invest because their financials are impressive and are likely to keep dominating.

So, I fall back to my original point. If you want to invest in the top companies of that ETF you will have to put in a lot of elbow grease and get to looking at some SEC filings. Full disclosure I have not looked at any of these companies financials so I can not speak on if any of them are overvalued or undervalued.

But again, if you don't want to do all of that, just pick the ETF and let it do all the thinking for you.

What am I manipulating? I bought in when I said I did and it ended where I said it did. Chech the FDA approval calendar and study results yourself. Or hell look at the 15-0 and 13-0 FDA panel recommendations saying their gene therapies are more beneficial than harmful. They've got two NDA results coming up, the first in two weeks and the next in September, which is what the panel recommendations are about. The company is in a very hard financial situation if they get CRLs, which has impacted stock price, but that is extremely unlikely based on the FDA panel recommendations and the great clinical trial results. This is a clear cut FDA approval play where it seems to me the shorts got ahead of themselves. The big move today I believe was about news of PFE being in talks to buy a similar company with a less promising gene editing process. So please call out a specific lie or manipulation in that or STFU.

Buddy, I’ve seen his response now which fills in the gaps. It’s perfectly reasonable ask where the 30k to 160k gain came from because all he said was “MRNA and PFE paid well” instead of “I profited over 130k from MRNA and PFE.” Now let’s address how far up your asshole your fist is at the moment for you be so cheerful

The biggest strat is to not put in more money than you’re willing to lose. After that it’s just about waiting for high volatility events in liquid option chains, ideally with contracts as close to 0 DTE as possible. Ultimately it’s just luck of the draw. The $300 to $30k I made on $AMC was practically all luck. The $30k to $160k via $MRNA and $PFE were still a lot of luck but also a bit of actual research on insider buys and overall flow. $PFE options in particular had insanely low IV before they ran up, and so the OTM calls were very lucrative if you timed it right.

I got really lucky last year rolling OTM weeklies on $AMC. Went from $300 to around $30k from that, then bought a ton of OTM calls on $MRNA and $PFE which paid well. Then lost most of it gambling on weeklies and low liquidity plays. Thankfully still walked out with +$20k but had to take like a year to get over the depression and refine my strategy lol.
