    Susan...Maybe Jack should just buy ARR (yield 22.8%)...that way he will get more dividend than having both SFL (yield 7.6%) and VLCCF (yield 11.3%)....18.9% (SFL & VLCCF) vs 22.8% (ARR)...Jack can own one stock (ARR) and get 3.9% more yield than having two different stocks (with the same amount of money)...! That would make more sense that buying options that he may not understand...! Disclosure...history has showed that I am right better than 70% of the time...!

    • about 30% of the time, right? A very good reason to use options to collect a premium and then wait for the stock to come to a price you feel is reasonable...even if you are wrong by a small percentage you can still make nice money using this method.

      good luck to you.


    • stagg, looks to me that arr has only paid out two divys. Hardly looks like a place to jump to with such a short record. JKP

    • Susan (aka-sid66, fasstcarman, marymary999, heartbreaker101 and etc.)...Have you notice that VLCCF is down 2.6% at this time today...? And have you notice that ARR is up about 2% at this time today...? Gosh, are we having fun yet...? That said, Jack...please, listen to Bayman667 (he is a very sharp investor)...!

      • having fun right now....started replacing my naked puts which I covered the day before ex-div about 2 weeks ago...

        sold some $17.50's for 2.25 today and will keep selling either $15 or $17.50 strike price. This is a far better stock than SFL which is only holding up this week because of ex-div around the corner. Still keeping my naked puts with $15 strike price though...that is a reasonable price for this stock.
