former newspaper reporter and editor, now a part-time college prof -- didn't know much about this stock stuff when I started in December '13, but I have been learning fast in the school of experience. Small portfolio of ~$15K
Invest in stocks that have high earnings beat or miss and hold them for a short term to several months using call or put options. Also use covered calls to make income on my current holdings. I also invest in biotech stocks.
I'm focused primarily on undervalued Bio stocks trading @ <$10 with promising pipelines & novel therapies. My strategy employs obsessively thorough DD which helps me stay above the noise of the Street. PS: Did you know that I'm utterly insane?
