In the past two weeks Timour and I have published several articles which have been quite popular. We published two articles onspecialized option strategies. The first was about using an artificial buy/write position to create exceptional gains in “How to Capture Big Gains On the Next Spike in Oil With Limited Downside Risk.” We also published an article (the second of two parts) which explains how to roll option positions in conjunction with Timour’s other strategy: “Our Long-Term Investing For Increased Yield Strategy, Part 2.”
I also continued the series of articles discussing my Master List. The Master List series is about the process I use to identify quality companies. You are welcome to jump into the series at any place or any time as each articles is written to stand well and make sense on its own, but you also may find it helpful to read the first article in the series, “The Dividend Investors’ Guide to Successful Investing,” which includes a detailed outline of the process of filtering and eliminating companies to narrow the list down to a manageable level. It includes a discussion of each of my ten rules that I apply to rate each company that makes it through the full screening process.
This week’s articles in the series were
The last one was again designated as an Editor’s Pick on Seeking Alpha. These articles provide my current assessments of the each industry as mentioned in the title. I also discuss the more notable exceptions from my list and explain why each company failed to make the list.
Looking forward to the coming week I plan to continue my “Master List” series with detailed analysis and explanations of why each company survived my rigorous test. Timour and I will be including more articles with specific recommendations that we hope you will find interesting and containing exceptionally low risk / high reward potential. I hope you will join us and question our assessments. I always enjoy sharing and learning more from others about the companies I own or want to own. I truly believe that we all benefit from the process. We try to answer every question that is posed in the comments section following each article. Have a great week and hold onto your shorts! It’s starting out to be quite a ride.
