Naked Puts… Potentially A Most Profitable Options Strategy Yet Most Frequently Abused…
The naked puts charlatans come in waves. As soon as one generation forgets about the last attempt at selling a ‘no lose naked put’ strategy, a new schmuck arises with a similar ‘new strategy’ leading the desperate masses, desperate for 110% winning rates to buy into the program.
Remember 1999? The good old days… Well back then ‘stocks always went up’ and if they pulled back ‘they’d go up later’ – right? So therefore if we solid naked puts and the stock went against us we would simply ‘roll it out’ to the next month until we won! Aha! Genius! Brilliant! And since we ‘can’t lose’ why not sell a bunch of naked puts taking advantage or the margin our brokers so generously offered to us. Wow what genius though of this!
Then in late 2000, during the Bush/Gore ballot recount, the markets cracked, a very long term trend broke. Naked put sellers kept rolling out, and rolling out and rolling out – ‘hey wait, when is this going to turn around?’.
There would finally be some relief as the markets retraced, but that would be short lived and the markets continued down, and down, and down. The margin calls started coming in, accounts got wiped out. Poof. It was all over. In a flash.
Their (hair brained) naked put strategy failed them. The childish, desire to only win, and win every time (even if it makes only a tiny amount of money) doomed them from the start.
Fortunately by that time I had much experience in the markets. That strategy ‘smelled funny’ from the start. It just didn’t add up because stocks didn’t ‘always go up’. They just didn’t want to believe that this is a high risk, or unlimited risk and Limited we ward strategy. Yes there was an advantage with premium decay but speed of the market easily offset that advantage. And once you’re naked puts start going against you they hit 100% deltas AGAINST you just about right away.
With all of this said, we don’t need to sell naked puts in a stupid way. We can use other smarter strategies that can put the power of selling that fine juicy premium to our advantage. And we can actually turn selling naked puts into a net worth building strategy that could yield us superior returns, While putting the risk risks to reward ratio more on our side.
