MarketBeat Podcast: Options Trading As Easy As Trading Stocks

In this episode The MarketBeat Podcast, Kate talks about options with CC Lagator, co-founder of options trading platform Options AI. CC explains what’s wrong with the options-trading industry when it comes to helping individual investors, who tend to trade differently from the big institutions. 

Kate and CC discuss: 

Why CC and his co-founders saw the need for a new options trading platform for retail traders

How retail options trading can be riskier than the way institutions trade options

Why do investors need a plan to set themselves up for the probable 

How to use options to position against an event happening 

How even investors without interest in speculative options positions could use options to add income 

If you’re a long-term holder in a stock you can use put spreads to help you avoid bad trading decisions at lows

On the upside, instead of making a decision to sell because a stock is extended, you could sell calls and call spreads against the holdings to help you gain income as positioning against an event happening

One of the greatest skills you can have as a professional trader or investor is your own cognitive biases: Options give you a way to have a plan to gain income

Hedging strategies allow you to ask the question of how you can sleep at night in a volatile market

How should people approach the current market? 

Why CC believes it’s best to play for singles and doubles right now, rather than a home run with options right now. 

How CC and Options AI train new options traders to succeed

7 Outdoor Living Stocks to Buy Before Investors Go Away For the Summer

Outdoor living is one of the largest sectors of the stock market. The United States spends over $800 billion every year on outdoor entertainment. To put that in context that spending number is on par with the financial services and insurance sector. And, it's almost double the spending in the pharmaceutical industry.

Stocks that focused on outdoor living surged during the pandemic because many Americans understood that being outside (albeit in a socially distanced fashion) was paramount to their physical and mental health. However, the sector didn't see a slowdown in 2021. And it looks like it will continue to be a strong sector in 2022. One reason for that is inflation. It's likely that travel budgets may be affected. But sunshine and fresh air are free.

But isn't this a lousy time to buy stocks? It could be. But it really comes down to being picky. Quality still matters and there are many quality names in this sector. And in this MarketBeat exclusive, we offer seven outdoor living stocks that are good buying opportunities because they lean into the larger macroeconomic picture.
