Trades for 9.01.15. Let’s keep the $SEGN trade “open” below:

The markets are down 2% in pre-market. I will want to trade our protective puts – for the portfolio – down to lock in profits. There isn’t any sense holding an in-the-money put by $20 when we can buy at ATM put in case stocks rebound like last week. TJ

Hi Folks –

I’ve been writing through the morning . I wanted to see what China/Asia markets were doing. .I couldn’t get this to Alex in time. I wasn’t able to get ahold of Alex, and am sneding the trades.I want to buy some beat up closed end fund securities trading at high discount to CEF.  TJ 08.31.15


In this issue I will highlight adding some various stocks. The market is down for 2015. The market was volatile last week. The stocks I highlight are dividend growth: 1) Exxon-Mobil (XOM) and 2) Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (FCX). I will have updates on new positions and some sell orders. TJ

My Thoughts

I want to buy some down and out stocks. If Buffett, et al, are buying 10% of a stock, then I want to dig deeper.


Fed Minutes:

From last week: “In the past week the Federal Research minutes were released. The minutes indicated a dovish view. This differed from the Wall Street perception. This caused, for example, the 3-Month Treasury Bill to drop in yield from 11-basis points to 2-basis points. The 10-Year Bond yield dropped from 2.25% to 2.05%.”

The Fed is a mess. They can’t raise rates per the last Fed meeting.
