Intelligent Option Investing: The Intersection of Options and Value

Value investors tend to be distrustful of options because of the way they are usually presented?either as short-term trading? tools or as complex mathematical puzzles that require a PhD in math to unravel.

In fact, options are simple, directional tools that are peerlessly flexible, and when used prudently, allow investors to boost growth, generate income, and protect gains. What?s more, for someone who understands what the option market is saying, investing in stocks becomes like playing cards with an opponent who always keeps his cards face up on the table.

Erik Kobayashi-Solomon, former hedge fund risk manager, market strategist at Morningstar, and author of The Framework Investing (2014, McGraw-Hill) will introduce the foundations of intelligent option investing:

  • What options are and how they work,
  • How to avoid behavioral pitfalls and structural traps to accurately assess the value of a stock, and
  • How to tilt the balance of risk and reward in your favor through a prudent use of options and stocks.

Join Erik for an unforgettable presentation?that will change?your outlook on?investing.
