Not only do these investments offer excellent returns but most can withstand 25% declines and STILL return the above percentages. Those that cannot quite sustain 25% declines such as PFE and TEVA should nevertheless be safe enough as volatility is quite low on these names.
These returns are ONLY available for trades done at TD Ameritrade and using strictly CASH. Very very few investors engage in investments such as these and the few that do transact business at brokerages with much higher margin requirements. I consider myself to be one of the very best experts in the nation in options investment such as the above with such wonderful reward/risk ratios. I will almost always outperform almost all others with the exception of all-out crash markets.
