Gone Fishin Hottie Perfect

Here are today's Covered Call Picks for Wednesday 07-17-2013.

What's a Covered Call?

The covered call is a strategy where an investor writes a call option contract (sells an option) while at the same time owning an equivalent number of shares of the underlying stock.If this stock is purchased simultaneously with writing the call contract, the strategy is commonly referred to as a buy-write.

While you may have heard that trading options is risky business, covered calls are actually a very conservative strategy, and most brokerages even allow retirement IRA accounts to write covered calls.

Sling Blade Covered Calls

Here are today's Covered Call Picks for the July 2013 expiration.

What's a Covered Call?

Two Dollars - Better Off Dead

AMD reports late Tuesday, is it worth the gamble?

Last Friday Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) closed down 10% to $2.46.  The company reports earnings Tuesday (Jan 22nd) after the market closes and it's a scary bet.

Advanced Micro Devices in Free-fall

Batman - Worst Movie Version Ever with Clooney

If AMD could be one of the Batman movies, it would be the crappy one with Clooney.

Who knows what is really going on at Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)?  Are they up for sale, will they break-up, will they fold, will they fade like the bad memory of Batman & Robin from 1997.


AMD Gets Eaten Alive

Liam Neeson - The Grey (1)

Like a scene out of 'The Grey', AMD is getting devoured by wolves today.

Sorry Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) shareholders, you just lost even more money.  AMD hit a new 52-week low this morning of $2.86 a share -- ouch.


Goldman Sachs Skeletor Style

Last week we speculated AMD could bounce, thanks to Goldman Sachs it did.

Goldman Sachs (GS) raised its rating Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) to 'Neutral' from 'Sell' today.  Its the first time Goldman has upgraded AMD in more than 5 years.  Mastery believed AMD was ready for a bounce last week and we only had to wait a few trading sessions for it to happen.


MCA - Young Beastie Boys

MCA helps us review the stock picks of the week.

Quiet week except for silver and its silver mining companies. Besides SLV, SSRI there could be something left in AMD (AMD) but its a risky trade.  Nokia (NOK) jumped big time since we recommended it.  Let's review the week and relive the glory of MCA.

Orko AMD

AMD is as lame as Orko.  Its why we are looking at it.

Another day, another 52-week low for shares of Advanced Micro Devices (AMD).  Yesterday AMD shares sunk to $3.75, a price not seen since 2009.  Is there hope for a comeback?

Dumpster Diving for Stocks

A month later we go back in the trash, turns out NOK has bounced 70%.

Mastery goes back to the trash a month later and finds the big winner of our 'Dumpster Dive Stocks' is Nokia (NOK) up more than 70%.  Not doing well are shares of AMD (AMD) and Research in Motion (RIMM).  However AMD should not be left in the garbage but RIM is nothing but rubbish.
