A fellow Sizzler wrote in yesterday asking, "You don't discuss a lot about investing in stocks, why?" There's a good reason why and remember, this is just my opinion. Very few probably know a high-level executive at a publicly traded company. However, let's pretend you lived next door to one. If you owned shares of the company and asked them any question related to the business that wasn't already made public, they'd tell you it's against the law. Now there are good reasons why this is, but that's the reason why firms and investors created things like P/E ratios and such to provide confidence on why a stock maybe a great buy. The truth is that no one knows because all the relevant information to run a business is unknown until everyone is told at the same time. And even then not all the details are released. There's no edge, and all you're doing is following everyone else. That is why I'm adamant about having control of risk and having an edge. People lie, but the options don't. There are times the options market doesn't get it right, but that is a less likely outcome. The way I trade options removes the fundamental and technical noise and allows me to just focuses on the probabilities. I can't say fundamental and technical analysis doesn't work. I just haven't seen it work, and my approach fits me. I approach investing into businesses the same way as I trade options. I like to invest in small private online businesses that have shown to be consistent cash-flow generators. With private companies, I can look through every detail necessary and create favorably structured deals. It provides more control and can sell them off when I make back the investment. I believe this is the perfect 1-2 combo for any portfolio that wants to creates diversification, cash flow and above-average returns. That is why I talk about other investment opportunities other than trading options.
