Stocks and ETFs are most likely the cornerstone of your investing portfolio, but did you know that you can employ long-term and short-term strategies in tandem to achieve your investment goals?
Long term passive holdings are what most investors think of when it comes to owning stocks or ETFs.
- These holdings can be simple, such as indexing with ETFs or index funds to track long term market returns
- Investors can also select specific sectors, or bet on companies they believe in.
- One of the key elements is that these assets can be held for over a year to gain favorable tax treatment as long-term capital gains.
Active trading foregoes the simplicity of the passive approach to try to time buys and sells around fluctuations in price
- There are significant opportunities for additional returns for those who can buy when the price is low and sell when the price is high
- Being able to tell the difference is not easy, but if done correctly, can result in far greater returns, especially on a risk adjusted basis.
- That means equal or greater returns, for enduring equal or less volatility.
Options Strategies can be a way to achieve many specific investment goals.
- Options can be used to hedge risk on positions, as in the case of buying puts (like insurance against on your stock holdings).
- Investors can also buy options straight up (without the stock position) to gain leveraged stock exposure
- Since most options expire worthless, many investors sell options to collect premium against their stock holdings.
- There are many options strategies, but the exposure can be summarized as being more or less bullish/bearish. Buying options outright is more directional, and using spreads is less directional.
