I did well in 2007-2008 buying puts on homebuilders and financials. But those days are gone. Plus the market seems obviously manipulated and gamed now, especially in financials.
So, I’m going to try something new (and maybe go back to more long-term investing too.) First off, Ford and Microsoft look good long-term, and their LEAPS are cheap. So I’ll probably be buying Jan 2010 LEAPS in both soon.
Then ramp up my already existing interests in cleantech and renewable energy, and look for long-term trades there too.
