My colleague at StreetAuthority, Paul Tracy, has been finding
low-risk and profitableinvestments for more than a decade. Lately,
he has become concerned about the risks of thestock market in the
long term and believes "dividendswill account for all of the
market's return for the next decade."
If he is correct,stocks that have sustainable, growingearnings
and pay a safedividend .
I agree with Paul's long-term views, but I rarely buy these
kinds of stocks outright.
You see, I use a special strategy that allows me to buy
high-quality stocks at a discount and even earn extra income from
stocks I own. It's not for everyone, but I think it's one of the
smartest, highest-percentage strategies in the financial world.
I'm not going to beat around the bush. It involves options. But
hear me out, the strategies I use are safer and simpler than you
For example, with oneoption strategy I use, one of two things
1. You receive instant income and keep it as pureprofit --
without ever having to buy a stock.
2. You get the opportunity to buyshares of a company you want to
own anyway -- just at a discounted price. You'll even know the
price up front before you ever make the trade.
You're basically betting that a great company won't fall to
fire-sale prices in a short period of time. We'll be right in most
cases and book the income as 100% profit. Itputs you in control of
when (and how much) income is deposited into your account, even if
the market is flat for the next decade... or century for that
This strategy also allows you to generate income from blue-chip
stocks that don't pay dividends.
Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN)
, for example, is one of the most dominant retailers in the world.
Yet, it's completely out of most income investors' radar since it
has never paid a dividend. Using the strategy above, I was able to
collect $710 in income with a $4,400 "down payment." That's a 16%
return on a trade that will last less than four months. And unless
Amazon's stock falls 18% in the next five trading days, I'll never
have to buy one share.
Once in a while, however, we'll have to buy shares. That's not a
bad thing, because we're getting a great deal on a stock we'd want
to own anyway. Plus, we can then turn around and collect extra
income from the stock using a different options strategy.
Risks to Consider:
This might be the closest thing to a no-lose strategy you'll
find in the markets. This doesn't
mean there's zero risk or that these strategies are for
everyone. In fact, if you have less than $25,000 in your trading
account, then I don't recommend you try these kinds of

I'm putting the finishing touches on a report that details who
should (and shouldn't) try these strategies and answers nine other
commonly asked questions about boosting income with options.
