From the Desk of
Celebrate Your Independence!
While none of us were alive 241 years ago we all get to celebrate Independence Day in the greatest country on earth. We gather together with friends and family and probably grill some hamburgers and hotdogs, play games and maybe even take in a fireworks show. We sometimes forget that American's died securing our freedom and many more have died preserving that freedom over the last two centuries. We salute the men and women in the armed forces today and wish them all a safe return home.
In the financial markets we have plenty to be thankful about. Most of us do not live in the UK so the actual Brexit is not going to be the end of the world as we know it. This has been worsened by the outcome of the recent snap election.
We have had a fantastic last 8 months. The major indexes are up double digits and setting new highs. Q1 earnings grew 15.4% for S&P companies and are expected to grow double digits for each of the next three quarters. The Q1 GDP was only 1.2% growth but the Q2 GDP forecast is for a rebound of 3.4% and rising. The worst should be behind us.
The Fed is raising rates slowly and plans on starting the process to reduce their balance sheet. The market has taken the changes in stride and continued higher.
The election provided a monster boost to the market on economic optimism about tax reform, infrastructure and the end to Obamacare. The president is struggling to get his agenda into motion but consumers seem to be maintaining their optimist outlook.
While nobody can accurately predict market direction, the long term trend is normally up. Obviously, you cannot benefit from the next market rally if you are not in the market. If you are in the market we hope you will be reading the Option Investor Newsletter for market guidance and winning option plays.
We at Option Investor would like to celebrate Independence Day by giving everyone a special subscription offer. Every December we offer a package of four newsletters for the bargain price of $495 per year. That is well off the more than $1,500 you would spend if you subscribed to each one individually.
For the Independence Day special we are going to make that same offer but at half price for $249 for a six-month subscription. That pays you up on all four newsletters until the end of December and just in time for the End of Year special. This insures you are paying the absolute lowest cost for your subscription for the next six months. Nobody gets them any cheaper.
We have no advertising on the website or in the emails. The newsletters are entirely subscription supported.
I want to thank everyone for continuing to support the Option Investor family of newsletters. Everyone at Option Investor could not do what we do without your loyalty, support and feedback.
||The Independence Day Special provides our core newsletter products at absolutely the BEST PRICE AVAILABLE to our most valued subscribers. No one gets a better deal!
Nearly 50% of our readers take advantage of the annual renewal special each year. The reason is simple we offer our best package of newsletters at the best possible price for the entire year.

An Added bonus this year!
As an added bonus this year I am including a copy of Jason Zweig's "The Devil's Financial Dictionary." I recently bought this book and loved it. I immediately decided to reward every subscriber with their own copy on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. This is 256 pages of irreverent definitions to all the terms you hear in the market every day.
"Open this wonderful book to any page. Try not to laugh. I dare you." —James Grant, Grant’s Interest Rate Observer
"Laugh, cry, and learn as you enjoy the sparkling Devil’s Financial Dictionary." —John C. Bogle, founder of The Vanguard Group
"This is the most amusing presentation of the principles of finance that I have ever seen." —Robert J. Shiller, author of Irrational Exuberance
"The Devil's Financial Dictionary is witty, irreverent, skeptical and humorous—making it an entertaining read for those within and outside the financial industry." —Manhattan Book Review
A Second Way to Save

You get to build your own holiday special and subscribe to your favorite newsletters at the best price of the year.
All Option Strategies Used, Longer Hold Time Using Special Situation Stocks - In today's volatile market a buy and hold investor is more accurately described as a buy and hope investor. Volatility can be a bad thing for some option traders but it can also present some spectacular opportunities. Volatility can knock you out of carefully crafted positions and produce expensive losses. However, buying certain stocks after a volatility event sometimes produces an outstanding trade. Volatility can come from an earnings miss, a guidance warning, broker downgrade, etc or it can come from a sector event where some other stock in the sector falls off the cliff and drags the sector down with it. Buyouts in the sector, rumors of buyouts or even failed buyouts all produce volatility events that can be used to our advantage. More Info
Are you ready to start trading smart? Have you been trading directionally and losing money? What are you trying to prove? You can generate a healthy cash-flow using our non-directional option strategies and I can teach you how. In the last two years we've more than doubled our money in our posted portfolio -- using these same conservative "hands-off" non-directional strategies. We minimize our risk and put percentages in our favor. More Info
The OilSlick.com newsletter focuses on plays in the energy sector with both short and long term portfolios. With crude oil playing such an important part in our lives and such a big impact on the market any investor should have an energy component in their portfolio. Peak Oil is not mentioned much in the press today because the decline in the global economy has slowed the growth of oil demand. This will change in the coming months as China and Europe rebound out of their economic weakness and oil demand accelerates. Be prepared for the next move in oil prices with the OilSlick newsletter.
