3 Doubles in 3 Weeks

Editor’s note: This week, The Rude welcomes special guest Mike Burnick.

Yesterday, Mike told you a little about himself and his Amplified Income system. Today, he’ll give you a behind-the-scenes look at some of his latest trades…

Mike Burnick
By the end of June, trade-war rhetoric was in full swing.

In the middle of a deepening trade war, I ignored the noise and entered three safe and defensive plays.

The first of these buys occurred on June 20 with Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE).

Trade tensions between China and the U.S. have been bad news for most stocks, causing the Dow to plummet.

Almost every sector was dragged down except for health care.

I issued an alert to buy PFE August 2018 $37 calls. Readers were able to enter at a $0.55 price per contract.

One week later, we got a signal to enter two more defensive positions.

Fear had set off alerts for the bond market on June 27, and we targeted iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (NASDAQ: TLT).

I issued an alert to buy TLT August 2018 $121 calls. Readers were able to enter at a price of $1.30 per contract.

The very next day, signals went off for another sector, this time for utility stocks.

We targeted SPDR Utility Sector ETF (NYSE: XLU), and I issued a buy alert to buy XLU August 2018 calls.

Readers were able to get in at a price of $0.80.

Then we waited… and the profits came rolling in.

On July 6, we sold our XLU contracts for $1.55 each, a 94% gain.

On July 9, we sold our TLT contracts for $2.00 each, a 54% gain.

On July 11, we sold our PFE contracts for $0.89 each, a 62% gain.

By taking advantage of market turmoil, we doubled three of our investments in just three weeks.

That’s the power of Amplified Income.
