How does options expiration effect dividend stocks? Options expiration is one of the "Known Events" that cause stocks to move either or down depending on the trend of coarse. Known Events can make or break a trend also. Quarterly earnings reports are the most used of these known events in many trading strategies. Stock splits, special dividends and even some seasonal influences can be entered into the same category of the "Known Events" that cause stock fluctuations.
Does options expiration have a direct effect on dividend stocks? For the most part dividend stocks have a tendency to follow a trend. A year after year steady, repeating patterns. From my years of investing I have found that options do have an effect but not directly related to increasing its value.
Adding some stock options into your trading strategy may turn out to be very profitable for you.
Just out of high school I decided to be self employed, after running a successful manufacturing business I had a problem of making more money than I knew what to do with. I started investing, after 23 years of investing I now want to share my strategy with a select few that want an extra edge in their own investing.
