About Jeff Carter

Jeff Carter is the Senior Editor of Maximum Options. Carter began as an investment advisor in 1986, and has edited several financial newsletters. He holds an economics degree from the University of California. Jeff Carter and has worked with Ken Trester for more than 12 years, having been a guest speaker at Ken Trester's investment seminars.

Jeff Carter has a three-pronged options investment strategy. First, he identifies stocks that are undervalued and have little downside risk. Then Carter uses timing indicators that tell him when the market is reawakening to the stocks, and the odds of a prolonged uptrend have increased. Next, Jeff Carter looks for LEAP options on stocks that are undervalued according to Ken Trester's pricing models. He also looks for fundamental undervaluation by comparing the LEAP's breakeven price with future price estimates for the stock. Finally, to reduce risk even more and magnify return, Jeff Carter recommends shorter-term "covered calls" to sell against the Leap positions. In the past, Carter has been able to reduce a LEAP's purchase price down to zero using this tactic, ending up with what amounted to a "free" investment.

Manage Your Portfolio with the Position Manager

There are quite a variety of investment newsletter services available to investors today, which achieve a decent track record. In reality, however, many newsletters have not translated well for most investors that subscribe to them. The reason? Money management. Without the proper position sizing using the right money management tool, you are only dealing with half the formula for success.

Let's face it: if there was one consistently successful investment newsletter, then the word would spread rapidly, and that one investment newsletter would have more customers than the population of China. The reality is that there has never been such a success. Why? Because in the final analysis, 8 out of 10 investors fail due to one simple reason: position sizing.

The majority of investors who subscribe to investment newsletters think that the process is as simple as "Just give me your recommendations and let me become as successful as you are". Unfortunately, as money managers know, entry points account for very little in the overall success of a portfolio. Find out why! is not affiliated with, or endorsed by, Ken Trester, Jeff Carter, or
