Before I answer your statement I'd like to make one point, answers in forums
like this have a way of being misconstrued as arrogant or confrontational,
so i want to make this clear...making money in the market is never easy,
especially over the last few years. However if you exercise discipline by
keeping your losses small and remain patient with your winners, you can
certainly average 25% returns in a year. I've averaged better than a 25%
return over the years by running a concentrated portfolio. I limit my
downside when I'm wrong and ride my winners when I'm right. I've been
fortunate enough to catch huge gains in GMCR, NFLX, AKAM and RAX to name
just a few.

Over half of my trades end up being stopped out for a loss.

My average loss is less than 8%, compared to my average gain being around 42%.
Now obviously, that doesn't mean we book 42% profits on all of our trades,
but as I'm sure you know, all it takes is one 500% or 600% winner to skew
the average in your favor.

I also use a small percentage of my portfolio trading options on companies coming out with earnings.

Many of my options plays result in a 100% loss, but some hit and when they do, it's big. Just
this evening GOOG proved this point and tomorrow its July $565 call option
will likely result in better than a 1000% gain. This is just one of many
options plays that work out to my advantage. But as my subscribers are
aware, very rarely do I put more than even 1 percent of my portfolio into an
options play due to the elevated risk of losing it all when I'm wrong.

If you really want to see what I do on a daily basis, why don't you take a free
trial and see for yourself.

    • Let's see... how many things can you do on a golf course?  Uh, fling golf, foot golf, regular golf, sled in the winter, ice skate on the ponds, cross-country ski, have keggers, have parties, have sex... the list goes on.  Mary Queen of Scots is turning over in her grave.
    • Tiger’s driving could be more erratic than Jack’s.    Driving: Jack (I think they were equal in distance relative to the equipment they were  playing, but Jack stayed out of the shit) Approach (75-250 yards): Wash. Jack takes the longer end (mainly because of some amazing 1 and 2 iron shots). Tiger takes the shorter end. Short Game: Tiger not close. Putting: Wash. Both of them in pressure situations.    Recovery: Tiger Mental: That’s a wash. Performance under pressure: Both How much better than everyone else was Tiger in his prime vs Jack on his prime? Tiger set the bar so high when he was in his prime that most guys behind him weren’t even in the same time zone let alone, the same tour. Jack was pretty damn good but he wasn’t as dominant as Tiger and that’s where Tiger is so much greater than Jack and that’s what makes him the GOAT.  
    • It seems it would be difficult to get the ball to stop on the green. Bump and run can be judged. But let’s say a 150-170yd…it’d be hard to hurl the ball far enough to get there but with a high enough trajectory to stay on the green. Seems like every shot outside 100yds would have to be a bump and run.
    • For those who have tried golf a few times and find it too frustrating(like my wife), I can see where this might be fun for some. Consider me open minded. But that is coming from a snow boarder and someone who also enjoys disc golf as well.  🙂
    • They probably have to pay the same rates so it won’t hurt the course in that aspect.
