Why Buy and Hold Investing Doesn’t Work for All

If you are starting your investing journey than you should consider the best methodology to achieve your objectives. Some popular theories include John Bogle suggesting to buy 50% in a stock index and 50% in a bond index. This is a set and forget move that only requires periodic rebalancing. I am sure this works for many investors. Then, there is the buy stocks for the long haul like Warren Buffett and others to let them appreciate in value and grow dividends over the lifetime of your portfolio.  Most investors subscribe to this theory for managing their investments. I prefer to more actively manage my portfolio and focus on multiple steams of income.

You may have heard the old adage that the best way to make a small fortune is to invest a large fortune. Another one is that the most difficult time to invest is always now. Mark Twain famously considered every month of the year was peculiarly dangerous for investing in stocks. And there is the wall is a thoroughfare that begins in a graveyard and ends in a river.

Sometimes Wall Street analysts urge the public to buy stocks they know are poor investments as they are probably selling in private deals. Insiders can play games using their superior information because they hold insurmountable advantages. Even Jim Cramer has acknowledged how easily stocks are manipulated by big-time money managers.

To some, this theory is referred to as buy and hope.

As you learned from the past two decades, stocks don’t always go up. Remember the market downturn not so many years ago. Some people buy stocks at the end of a bull market after listening to the crowd full of bull market stories for years only to watch their stocks for years through a bear market. If you are in your 30’s this may not be a concern. But if you are approaching middle age or retirement, do you have time to wait out a secular bear market?

The market went up an average of 8-9% in the last century but the key word here is this is an average. There have been periods of time when stocks turned in negative returns for several years. I know retirees who had their portfolio cut in half by market corrections. At that age, you no longer have the wherewithal to make earnings via working. A history lesson in it toke 20 years for the market to make gains after 1966. The latest bull market is being fueled by those prepping for retirement but eventually they will spend those dollars during retirement. You know what this means for the market.

Picking stocks that will last a lifetime to grow in value and appreciate in price is tough. We had debacles such as Enron and others and today bell weathers such as GE are in trouble. Yet to get rich in these stocks the security must perform well in all areas. Most of these stock picks are based on the fundamentals of the stock. However, there are many factors that affect long-term success such as changes in technology and markets. I am thinking of Amazon, Google, Facebook, Netflix and others. Where have all the books stores gone? Who was the major search engine before Google? Why are brick and mortar retailors going away because we shop on Amazon?

In general, buy and hold does not produce income. Stocks just lying around the portfolio doesn’t produce any cash flow unless they pay dividends. Growth stocks that are likely your home run stocks usually don’t pay dividends. If you asked a successful entrepreneur their opinion of tying up precious cash in a non-producing investment for years with the risk of a bear market, what will they say? They will probably tell you it is all about the cash flow. When income is not being produced, you are hoping stocks will increase enough over time to produce wealth.

The buy and hold investing ties up your capital without producing income to use in your life. If stocks are higher, then you can sell them, take gains and access the money. But if stocks are down, you are digging into your capital in order to get your hands on some cash. And it is all because stocks are not producing income.

Then there is the value investors. You know them, they buy low and sell high to capture the true value of the stock. Generally, the market moves all boats and your value investment will likely flow with the tide. Value is a relative term based on the perception of the assets as all do not agree on the correct value. Therefore, you had better be right if you are a value investor. Some stocks may be value plays for years!

Wall Street tends to be traders so they don’t do buy and hold investing but you are listening to their recommendations. Odd that Wall Street would tout a strategy they don’t follow themselves. There no mystery that Wall Street needs buyers for stocks. They turn their money generating cash flow all the time. Shouldn’t you?

Remember seeing two market crashes with one in 2000 and the next in 2007 with a span of 10 years. Some investors were ruined twice within a decade. With stocks at all-time highs, when will the next crash happen? Are you prepared to protect your capital?

The smartest strategy would be to buy stocks that pay dividends at the market bottom in 2009. You get the market rebound and cash flow from income. You may have picked up yields of 5% or more during this period.

Then, the best approach would be writing calls on your portfolio stocks to generate more income. A declining market is a perfect time to write calls on a long-term holding. The stocks are declining anyway so why not produce income out of them?

Instead of buy and hope investing, you should try income investing using a conservative approach that can produce an average monthly return of 3-5% which builds wealth quickly using dividend stocks. Think about it, you get dividends from the stock and premium income from writing covered calls.

Imagine that: you can force a stock to generate excellent income – paying you rent – while defining and limiting risk at the outset. And you can choose how much risk to undertake.

How to Sell Put Options for Income

Let’s walk through an example of how to sell a put. After careful selection of the right stock, you decide you would like to create a monthly income stream by selling puts each month on this stock. Let’s say the stock is currently trading at $70 in the market. After reviewing the option chain, you decide to sell the 67.5 put option on this stock that expires in one month. The 67.5 strike price is out of the money and will obligate you to buy the stock at $67.50 only if the put buyer decides to exercise the option on or before the expiration date. The put buyer will only exercise the option if they make money or if the stock price is below $67.50.

As the put seller (writer), you get to collect the cash premium for the option. In this case, let’s assume it is $200 per option contract or 100 shares of stock. The investor now has a risk of $67.50 – $200 = $65.50 per option contract sold. If this amount of $6550 per contract is in the investors brokerage account, this is a cash-secured put. The potential return is $200 which the put seller will keep regardless of the trade outcome.

The investors return is calculated as $200/$6550 or 3.05%. This is a nice return on a one month put option. On an annual basis, this is a return of 36.6%! This is why I sell put options for monthly income.

Here are the details of the trade:

1 Option = 100 Shares of Stock: In this example, we sold 1 put option. In other words, we sold someone the right, but not the obligation, to sell 100 shares of stock to us for $67.50 on or before the option’s one-month expiration date (usually the 3rd Friday of the month).

$ 2 = Our Options Premium: In exchange for giving someone (the put buyer) the right to sell us 100 shares of stock at $67.50, we get paid in cold-hard cash! In options lingo, we get paid in the form of a premium. In this example, our premium is $ 2 per share. Because each options contract equals 100 shares of stock, here our premium is $ 200. This $ 200 is deposited in our account at the time of the transactions. It is ours to keep no matter what transpires before expiration (the end of the contract).

There are 2 potential trade outcomes:

  1. The stock prices stays above the 67.5 option strike price so the put option expires worthless. Put yourself in the position of the options holder (the person that buys the put option from us). The put holder purchased the right, but not the obligation, to sell 100 shares of stock at $67.50 per share. Assume this put option expires in one month. If, at the end of that one-month expiration time period, the stock is trading at a price above $67.50, why would the put holder exercise his right to sell the stock at $67.50 when he can sell at a price above $67.50? They would not exercise the put option! The investor keeps the $200 premium and has a 3.05% return in one month.
  2. The stock declines in price and is below the 67.5 option strike price. The option will be exercised and the shares of stock will be sold to us at the strike price ($ 72.50 per share). Again, put yourself in the position of the put holder for a moment. If, at the time the put option is set to expire, the stock is trading at $65, and the put holder has the right to sell shares of stock at $67.50, why wouldn’t the put holder exercise his right to sell the stock at $67.50 per share? They would. So in this scenario, the cash we previously deposited into our brokerage account ($6750) is used to purchase the underlying shares that were “put” or sold to us. Our break-even point, also referred to as our “cost basis,” is now $65.50 ($67.50 per share we paid for the stock less the $ 2 per share put premium we received from the original sale of the put option). At this point, we own 100 shares of stock and can sell them or write a covered call trade.

This is a simple example of how to sell (write) a put option for monthly income. Once we do this each month we create a stream of cash flow to help us achieve financial independence.

Last month, we were successful on all put trades and averaged 3.5% return for the month.  Imagine making $3000 or more in income each month!   Start making more income each month by subscribing to the Monthly Income Plan.

How To Make Money On Stagnate Stocks

After bottoming out in October, the equities market bounced back with an impressive march higher. But faster than you can say “Happy birthday, bull market,” government shutdowns and other items loom in the horizon.

So, if you’re like most U.S. investors, you’ve probably got quite a few stocks in your portfolio that are now trading below freshly tagged multi-year highs. Since previous price peaks can act as areas of technical resistance, it’s only natural to be concerned about a forthcoming period of consolidation. Or, to be brutally honest — stagnation.

Fortunately, there’s a simple option strategy any investor can use to generate immediate income on his equity investments — even during those frustrating times when the market is grinding sideways.

A covered call is an option that you sell (or write) on a stock that you’re holding in your portfolio. By selling to open one call option, you’re accepting the obligation to deliver 100 shares of the underlying equity at the strike price of the option, should the stock price surpass the strike price, prior to the contract’s expiration date (in other words, should the option go “in the money”).

To build your cash-collecting call trade, take a look at a price chart of the security in question. You’ll need to pinpoint where you expect the shares to find resistance, because the strike price of your sold call(s) should generally correlate with this price zone.

In the best-case scenario, you want your sold call to expire worthless — or “out of the money” — so that you can (a) retain the entire premium received as pure profit; and (b) avoid taking any further action to close out the trade, which would rack up additional brokerage costs.

On the other hand, a call that’s too far away from the stock’s current price will barely be worth the effort. To see what we mean, simply check out the option chain of any given stock. As your eye travels over higher and higher strike prices, you’ll see the premiums begin to vanish.

Luckily, in the age of 1-point and 2.50-point strike prices for many popular stocks, it’s much easier than ever before to find a happy medium for your focus strike.

Once you’ve selected your ideal strike price, you’ll want to narrow your focus to shorter-term options. The comparatively richer option premiums of longer-dated contracts may be tempting, but trust us — the covered call strategy is best conducted over a relatively narrow window of time.

Put simply: The shorter the time frame of your trade, the less opportunity the shares have to rally above your focus strike. Plus, the effects of time decay are more pronounced on options that are closer to expiration — and in an option-writing strategy, time decay is your best friend. As the contracts shed their time value at an accelerating pace, they’ll naturally decline in price. This means the calls will be cheaper to buy back in the event that you should decide to liquidate your position ahead of expiration.

Investors should also be aware of the stock’s historical volatility, particularly as it relates to the option’s implied volatility. Equities with relatively low historical volatility (that is, slow-moving stocks) are attractive covered call candidates, because it suggests a relatively low probability of drastic price swings that could put you at risk of assignment. When implied volatility is inflated relative to historical volatility, it points to prime premium-selling opportunities.

On that same note, though, don’t forget to check the corporate calendar. A looming event, such as an earnings report or product launch, could be the underlying cause of inflated volatility. These events can often translate to significant price changes in the underlying stock, which raises the risk profile of a sold call position.

So, having selected an appropriate strike price and expiration month, your next responsibility is to place the trade with your broker. In order to make sure this is a covered call, be sure you sell no more than one option contract for every 100 shares of stock you own. Pocket your premium, and then sit back and wait for the options to expire worthless, as you predicted.

However, following a two-year rise in the broader equities market, it’s quite possible that you’re holding a few stocks in your portfolio that have delivered healthy returns. If you’re satisfied with the gains you’ve collected and are ready to move your investing capital elsewhere, writing covered calls is a savvy way to “get paid to get out.”

HFC pays 8th Special Dividend and Boosts Regular Dividend by 50%

Investors looking for a regular helping of special dividends should consider HollyFrontier Corporation (NYSE: HFC). The company just announced its 8th special dividend since August 2011.  In addition, HFC just juiced its regular dividend by 50%.

Subscribers to my Get Rich Monthly Income Plan received $31.00 per share in dividends in 2012 with a yield on cost of 12.5% in one year.  In addition, subscribers received $1,690 in call premiums on each 100 shares of HFC stock in 2012.  The covered call premiums accounts for a yield of 68% as subscribers utilized a special income technique called the perpetual covered call.  In total, Monthly income Plan subscribers booked a total return of 219% on HFC in 2012 alone!

HollyFrontier Corporation (HFC) announced today that its Board of Directors approved a 50% increase in the Company’s regular quarterly cash dividend to $0.30 per share from the current rate of $0.20 per share. This is the fifth increase in the regular dividend since the merger in July of 2011, representing a total increase of 300%. The regular dividend will be paid on April 2, 2013 to holders of record of common stock on March 15, 2013.

The Company also announced today a special cash dividend in the amount of $0.50 per share. The special dividend will be paid on March 19, 2013 to holders of record of common stock on March 5, 2013. This is the 8th special dividend declared by HollyFrontier since August 2011.

HFC’s stock price is up 70% in the past year but still trades at a low PE of 7.5 which is a 60% discount to the industry average PE ratio.  HFC has an equity summary score of 9.8 out of 10 for a VERY Bullish outlook.

Mike Jennings, CEO and President of HollyFrontier, said, “Our Board of Directors remains committed to delivering value to our shareholders through both a growing regular dividend as well as special dividends. After today’s 50% dividend increase, our current regular dividend yield is 2.2%, and our trailing twelve month cash dividend yield stands at 6.1% relative to today’s closing price of $53.72. Including today’s announcement, HollyFrontier has returned almost $1.3 billion in capital to shareholders through regular dividends, special dividends and buybacks since the July 2011 merger.”

Chevron Is Right For This Option Strategy

Chevron Corporation, through its subsidiaries, engages in petroleum, chemicals, mining, power generation, and energy operations worldwide. It operates in two segments, Upstream and Downstream.  CVX has an equity score of 9.6 (VERY BULLISH) out of a 10.  This is a covered call position on Chevron Corp (CVX),

OPTION STRATEGY:

Look at the June 95 covered call. For each 100 shares of Chevron Corporation (CVX) stock you buy, sell one June 95 covered call option for an 96.70 (100.30 – 3.60) debit or better. That’s potentially a 3.4% assigned return.

STOCK TREND:

The technicals for CVX are bullish with a weak downward trend.  The stock is under distribution with support at 101.95.  S&P rates this stock 5 STARS (out of five) – strong buy.

RESEARCH NOTES:

S&P maintains strong buy recommendation on shares of Chevron Corp. (CVX) . CVX sees ’12 capex at $32.7B, up from $28B, before acquisition, expected in ’11.  Upstream is slated at $28B (87%), with major capex at LNG and deepwater projects.  We think it will comfortably fund this plan, and possibly boost dividends and buybacks via projected cash flow.  We see CVX thriving from a smaller refining footprint, where Asian exposure will help future results.  About 69% of production is higher-margin oil.  Shares have outperformed peers and benchmarks in ’11, but discounted valuations and solid near/long-term growth visibility remain highly attractive, in our view.

Covered Write on American Tower (AMT)

American Tower Corporation (AMT) is a holding company. It is a wireless and broadcast communications infrastructure company that owns, operates and develops  communications sites. Its primary business includes leasing antenna space on multi-tenant communications sites to wireless service providers and radio and  television broadcast companies. This business is its rental and management operations. The Company also offers tower-related services domestically,  including site acquisition, zoning and permitting services and structural analysis services, which primarily support its site leasing business and the addition of new tenants and equipment on its sites. On August 6, 2010, the Company’s, Transcend Infrastructure Limited, acquired Essar Telecom Infrastructure Private  Limited (ETIPL). On June 29, 2010, it acquired 113 towers from Telefonica Chile S.A. As of December 31, 2010, the Company acquired 475 towers from  Telefonica del Peru S.A.A.

This is a covered call trade for monthly income using AMT as the underlying stock.  AMT has a neutral equity score of 5.8 in a 10 point scalle by analyst covering the stock.

OPTION STRATEGY:

Look at the January 2012 59.65 covered call. For each 100 shares of American Tower Corp (AMT) stock you buy, sell one January 59.65 covered call option for a 57.19 (58.69 – 1.50) debit or better.  That’s potentially a 4.3% assigned return.

STOCK TECHNICALS:

The technicals for AMT are bullish with a weak upward trend.  The stock is under accumulation with support at 57.67.  S&P rates this stock 5 STARS (out of five) – strong buy.

RESEARCH NOTES:
S&P maintains strong buy opinion on shares of American Tower (AMT) .  AMT announced it plans to acquire roughly 2,500 towers from Telefonica’s (TEF) subsidiary inMexico, Pegasos PCS, for roughly $500M.  We view the planned deal as a positive as it roughly doubles AMT’s exposure to Mexico and these towers should benefit from the recent spectrum auctions and the launch of new technologies.  We believe this also demonstrates AMT’s desire to remain in a growth mode while also looking to achieve REIT status. We maintain our 12-month target price of $74, based on 24X our ’12 free cash flow estimate, a slight premium to peers.

 

Covered Call Write on Advanced Auto Parts

Covered Call trade on Advanced Auto Parts (AAP).

OPTIONS STRATEGY:

Look at the December 2011 70 covered call.  For each 100 shares of Advance Auto Parts (AAP) stock you buy, sell one December 2011 70 covered call option for a 67.06 (69.31 – 2.25) debit or better. That’s potentially a 4.38% assigned return.  This stock also pays a dividend which may add another 0.1% to the return. The stocks last ex-dividend date was 9/21/2011.

TECHNICALs:

The technicals for AAP are bullish with a possible trend reversal.   The stock is under distribution with support at 64.38. S&P rates this stock 5 STARS (out of five) – strong buy.

RISK:

For those wanting downside protection, buy the March 2012 65 put for 3.50.  Sell the put when you exit the covered call.  This is optional for the covered call to protect the downside of AAP at 65.

RESEARCH NOTES:
S&P reiterates strong buy recommendation on shares of Advance Auto Parts (AAP) .   For the 12-weeks ended October 8, EPS of $1.41, vs. $1.03, is $0.22 above our estimate.   While comp-store sales rose just 2.2%, this quarter lapped an exceptional 9.9% increase in the year-ago period, providing a challenging hurdle.   We continue to favor industry fundamentals, and expect global sourcing efforts and supply chain investments to drive improved gross margins over the medium term.  As a result, we are increasing our ’11 and ’12 EPS estimates to $4.96 and $5.71 from $4.72 and $5.47, and are also raising our DCF-based target price by $5 to $85.
EARNINGS HIGHLIGHTS:
  • On 11/09/11, the company announced quarterly earnings of 1.41 per share, a positive surprise of 19.4% above the consensus 1.18.  Over the past 4 quarters, the company has reported 3 positive (>2%), 1 negative(<-2%), and 0 in-line (within 2%) surprises.  The average surprise for this time period has been 5.0%.
  • AAP’s current quarter consensus estimate has remained relatively unchanged over the past 90 days at 0.68.  Estimates within its Subsector have moved an average of 0.0% during the same time period.
  • During the past four weeks, analysts covering AAP have made 1 upward and 0 downward EPS estimate revisions for the current quarter.

Calendar Spread Trade on Noble Corp (NE)

A CALENDAR SPREAD that involves selling the January ’12 37 call and buying the January  ’13 33 call should cost $32.59 less per share than the covered call and potentially yield a 100% return if the stock stays above $37 through expiration

TRADE:  Noble (NYSE: NE) ended the last trading session at $37.79.  So far the stock has hit a 52-week low of $27.33 and 52-week high of $46.72.  NE has had an S&P 4 STARS (out of 5) ranking since 6/8/2010.  On 7/21/2011 S&P equity analysts set a 12-Month price target of $47.00 for the stock.   Noble stock has been showing support around $36.76 and resistance in the $38.52 range.  NE is part of the S&P 4 STARS stock list.  One way to play this stock would be with a calendar spread that substitutes a longer term call option in place of the covered call stock purchase.  To use this strategy consider going long the NE Jan ’13 33 Call and selling the Jan ’12 37 call for a $2.00 debit.  The strategy has a 75 day life and would provide 7.38% downside protection and a 100.00% assigned return rate for a 486.67% annualized return rate (for comparison purposes only).

RISK: The Calendar spread strategy will normally carry more risk than a covered call strategy, but the rate of return is generally higher, since there is a lower capital outlay.  At a 3 Key risk ranking this strategy is considered to have moderate relative risk.  If the stock price at expiration is below $37 this strategy will not generate the potential returns shown. Another risk for this strategy is related to the bought Call Option price.   If the stock drops in price between now and
expiration date, there is a possibility that the Jan ’13 33.00 call could drop quickly.
