Stocks for Option Selling

Dear Reader,

Thank you for your purchase of High Income Retirement – my step-by-step instruction guide on how to make safe, profitable trades to supercharge your retirement income using options.

We believe blue-chip companies are the best, most stable businesses in the world. They share common traits like consistent profit margins, top name brands, global reaches, cash-rich balance sheets, and steady dividend payments.

Selling options on blue chips is one of the safest, steadiest ways to generate income – as you read in your book – High Income Retirement.

Below is our current list of the top 25 blue chips I encourage my readers to consider when investing. We look at several metrics when choosing these companies. We've included a peek at some of these in the table.

Here's to our health, wealth, and a great retirement,
