5-5-17 Dr Krider Performance

Dr. Krider’s managed portfolio YTD performance is 16.51% compared to the S&P 500’s 7.86%. These results are calculated and reported by Interactive Brokers using Dr. Krider’s own account.

Dr. James Krider creates monthly stock lists consisting of quality momentum stocks with associated weekly options. For each stock a stop loss and maximum position size is calculated. Stocks are entered and managed with options. For stocks we wish to own or control we purchase a call at or near the stop loss with an expiration of 3 months. Our excess cash is put to work selling PUTs for income on a one to two-week basis with a minimum annualized gain of 20%. To view the current portfolios, go to Dr. Krider’s momentum stock universe.

Technical analysis is neutral for short-term and bullish for intermediate- and long-term.

Overall: The market is flat and near its highs. There is resistance at 240 (not shown on the chart) and we have a triple top. If we break above 240 the market could march much higher or it may fail falling back to resistance. We will play the market cautiously neutral.


I do not plan on doing anything different next week. I have several written calls in June and July and sold puts on May 12. I will reinvest my expired May 5 puts to sell new puts one to two weeks out.
