Use Gorilla Fighting Tactics to Win the Options Game!

To be a successful option buyer you must use gorilla trading tactics!

The Put and Call Tactician uses gorilla trading tactics to give you the edge.

Options are a depreciating asset. They are a melting ice cube. The longer you hold them the more value you lose. Therefore, a short term trading strategy is needed.. With gorilla trading tactics you must attack quickly when a stock has strong upside or downside momentum. And then you must take profits quickly or exit quickly if the stock price moves the wrong way.

The Put and Call Tactician uses these gorilla tactics. The Put and Call Tactician uses a detailed game plan that guides you to stay in a position for a maximum of 3 weeks and sets a tight stop-loss to get you out of trouble quickly.

In our age of technology and information, a very special and intensive tool for the options investor is needed, and it is
The Put and Call Tactician, an on-line weekly advisory report.

We are bombarded by facts, and we have the technical advances that give us access to all these facts, but what facts are important, what do the facts mean, where do you go to get the valuable facts. Too much information, too many places to look can be very frustrating.

No more frustration is necessary. Using the technology to sort it all out and the information, carefully and swiftly sorted, Ken Trester's The Put and Call Tactician makes sense of the confusing world of stocks and options, and it does this for you week after week.

This invaluable tool is shaped for you by Ken Trester's very successful strategies for profiting from stock options. When you subscribe to The Put and Call Tactician, you invest in strategies that do not depend on a bull or bear market or on predicting a bull or bear market, strategies that can produce profits of 50% to 1000%, strategies that need little investment and thus have little risk, strategies good for the seasoned and serious player or the curious and cautious novice.


Experience and Success!

Ken Trester for 31 years has been helping thousands of investors profit from investing in stock options; both in the very successful newsletters, The Trester Complete Option Report, first published in 1983 and The Put and Call Tactician, first published in 1977.In fact, Ken Trester has been trading options since the options exchanges first opened in 1973 and is recognized as a leading international options advisor.

Among the variety of books he has written on this subject is the classic and comprehensive best selling The Complete Option Player that after numerous printings is in its 4th edition. Jeff Little, author of Understanding Wall Street said, "This book stands heads and shoulders above the others." Barry Vaniel, author of A Guide to Valuing Stock Options said. "You will not be able to put this book down. The thoughts and concepts presented will stick in your mind and you will find yourself referring to and rereading portions of the book again and again."


Ken Trester and the Nobel Prize Winning Theory

In 1973, Ken Trester, then a college professor of computer science, was in a position to learn of a new pricing theory created by two other professors, Fischer Black and Myron Scholes. This theory priced the true value of options. Ken at once knew the pricing model's importance and that it, with its accuracy and mathematical approach, presented exciting new opportunities in option trading. So, since 1973, using this theory, plus other strategies Ken had formulated, Ken Trester has been assisting investors in the challenging world of options.

In 1997 (Yes, 1997), this pricing theory was awarded a Nobel Prize in Economics. The Nobel Prize Committee, like many in the investment community, was a little slow on the uptake. It took decades for them to catch up with Ken Trester's assessment of this trading model.

This isn't unusual. Ken Trester has always been ahead of the pack, the pioneer in option trading, and he will be working for you when you can call up The Put and Call Tactician on your computer.

Unique Opportunities and Success!

Here is your chance to join the unique rodeo that is the options market! First, you have the choice of betting on the market going up or betting on the market going down. Being able to win when others are despairing because its a bear market make options unique.

Second, controlling a large share of stock for a pittance of the value of the stock and yet gaining enormous rewards if it is a "winning" stock makes options unique. In one instance, Ken's recommendations would have had you controlling 400 shares of 4 different companies (stock which would have cost $19,300 to buy) for just $1,600. Profit for that investment was $8,000, a 433% profit gain.

Third, the versatility of options, the incredible variety of ways they can be used to suit your tastes and needs, is unique. Buy them to reap a quick and stunning victory, buy them for a long term investment, buy them for insurance, buy them if your investment budget is limited, or buy them if you are nervous and don't know what yu'll encounter, bear or bull.

Buy a ticket cheap for the unique rodeo and get your expertise on the bull and bear from The Put and Call Tactician.

Put & Call Tactician Theorectical Track Record

Our 2000 Track Record!

The results from all the Profit Box positions recommended in The Put & Call Tactician for the year 2000 are listed below . This track record is theoretical and assumes that you were able to take profits at the profit goal or exit at the stop-loss option price when the stock hit the profit goal or closed below the stop-loss price. or were able to get the corresponding option pirce in the Option Box at the end of the 3-week hold period. There were three exceptions where the stock price gapped up or down.

As with any track record, you cannot assume that present or future recommendations will equal past performance. Commissions are not included in these track rccord results.

A summary of the results shows that we recommended 188 positions. 49% were profitable. If you would have purchased one of each of the options, you would have invested $43,700 . Your profit before commissions would have been $13,700 or a 31% return for holding the position a maximum of three weeks. Here the annualized return would be over a 600% return. -----Ken Trester

Our 2001 Track Record!

The results from all the Profit Box positions recommended in The Put & Call Tactician for the year 2001 are listed below . This track record is theoretical and assumes that you were able to take profits at the profit goal or exit at the stop-loss option price when the stock hit the profit goal or closed below the stop-loss price. or were able to get the corresponding option price in the Option Box at the end of the 3-week hold period.

As with any track record, you cannot assume that present or future recommendations will equal past performance. Commissions are not included in these track rccord results.

A summary of the results shows that we recommended 169 positions. 44% were profitable. If you would have purchased one of each of the options, you would have invested $32,480 . Your profit before commissions would have been $5,700 or a 17.5% return for holding the position a maximum of three weeks. Here the annualized return would be a 251% return. Over 10 option positions almost hit their profit goal but eventually were stopped out. Therefore, be aggressive about taking profits on half of your position even if it does not hit the profit goal.-----Ken Trester

Our 2002 Track Record!


The results from all the Profit Box positions recommended in The Put & Call Tactician for the year 2002 are listed below . This track record is theoretical and assumes that you were able to take profits at the profit goal option price or exit at the stop-loss option price when the stock hit the profit goal or closed below the stop-loss stock price. or were able to get the corresponding option price in the Option Box at the end of the 3-week hold period. These option prices were determine by their implied volatility at the start of the strategy.


. Commissions are not included in these track record results. There is high risk in option trading. You can lose your whole investment. Our past results are theoretical no actual positions are taken. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve a profit. In fact, there are sharp differences between hypothetical performance and actual results. We advise all investors that it should not be assumed that present or future recommendations will be profitable or equal past performance.

A summary of the results shows that we recommended 149 positions. 47% were profitable(the stock hit profit goal or was positive after the hold period). If you would have purchased one of each of the options, you would have invested $22,756 . Your profit before commissions would have been $2,935 or a 12.8% return for holding the position a maximum of three weeks. Here the annualized return would be a 221% return. As in previous years several positions almost hit their profit goal but eventually were stopped out. Therefore, be aggressive about taking profits on half of your position even if it does not hit the profit goal. Several stocks gapped into the money showing much bigger gains than those reflected in the track record and several stocks moved much further beyond the profit goal. That is why it is important to let half of your position ride when you take profits with a trailing stop, even beyond the 3-week time period. .-----Ken Trester


Our 2003 Track Record!


The results from all the Profit Box short term positions and Long Term option positions recommended in The Put & Call Tactician for the year 2003 are listed below . This track record is theoretical and assumes that you were able to take profits at the profit goal option price or exit at the stop-loss option price when the stock hit the profit goal or closed below the stop-loss stock price. or were able to get the corresponding option price in the Option Box at the end of the 3-week hold period or parameters of the long term option plays. These option prices were determine by their implied volatility at the start of the strategy.

Long Term Options


A summary of the results for the long term options shows that we recommended 47 positions(13 are still active and not included in the record but did show an overall profit at the end of the year). 62.8% were profitable(the stock hit the profit goal ). If you would have purchased one of each of the options, you would have invested $7245. Your profit before commissions would have been $5025 or a 69.9% return . This is not an annualized return. That return would be much higher. Also much bigger profits would have been made if you held part of your position after the profit goal was hit.


Short Term Options


A summary of the results for our short term option plays shows that we recommended 113 positions. 52.2% were profitable(the stock hit profit goal or was positive after the hold period). If you would have purchased one of each of the options, you would have invested $14,370. Your profit before commissions would have been $3090 or a 21.5% return for holding the position a maximum of three weeks. Here the annualized return would be at least a 372% return. As in previous years several positions almost hit their profit goal but eventually were stopped out. Therefore, be aggressive about taking profits on half of your position even if it does not hit the profit goal. Several stocks went much further beyond the profit goal. That is why it is important to let half of your position ride when you take profits with a trailing stop, even beyond the 3-week time period.
This year we introduced long term options and they generated much better returns than the short term positions. Such long term options have the big advantage of needing less trading and less attention.-----Ken Trester
