This past week my post on selling puts was picked up in Forbes.com. You can view it here. I received a ton of email on it from readers and will probably do a follow up piece soon. I seem to have people thinking about them and it did spur a bunch of additional questions the original piece may have not answered totally.
They have been featuring articles by various bloggers lately and the site is full of great info. Please visit them here.
A Good Read:
Since I am laid-up recuperating from a torn quad tendon and patella bone repair and will be for the next 6-8 weeks (If I was a horse I would have been Barbaroed' by now), I now have a bunch of time to catch up on some reading. This weekend I read through a little known Benjamin Graham book, "The Interpretation of Financial Statements". It is a short book , only 88 pages plus 31 pages of financial terms defined at the end. I highly advise this book to anyone who decides to take stock picking into their own hands (which you should do if you currently own mutual funds). It is written for investors of all experience levels and provides examples for each "Lesson". Please click on the link below and pick up a copy for yourself.

Oh yea............. "Who was Ben Graham"? You may be asking. None other than Warren Buffet's teacher and mentor. Read it and you will be keeping good company!!
