Control 100 Shares for Pennies on the Dollar

30 total views

Want to control 100 shares of stock for pennies on the dollar?

In this week’s episode of State of the Market, Chief Income Strategist Marc Lichtenfeld explains how you can do just that by trading options.

Options contracts give an investor the right to buy or sell a stock at a certain price point by a certain date.

If you’ve never heard of options, don’t worry…

As Marc recalls in this week’s episode, he, too, was once a novice options trader.

And if you’ve heard that options are risky investments, know that they don’t have to be.

Yes, an investor should take extra care in doing their homework before making an options play. Most importantly, they should never invest more than they can afford to lose.

But investors often forget the strength of options trades – why options exist in the first place.

Options allow investors to control more shares with less principal. That means they can soar in value like stocks… but with less capital at risk.

And by putting less capital at risk and hedging your bets, you can use options trades to make a fortune on the cheap.

See how for yourself in this week’s State of the Market.

Good investing,

Rachel
