Trading vs. Investing

There’s an important difference between the two — and knowing when to use each approach can help you build a bigger, better portfolio.

Ian King, Chief Investment Strategist, Banyan Hill

Hi, Ian here.

And welcome to today’s special VIP content.

Just as a reminder...

In yesterday’s VIP video, I went through the basics of options trading.

So, if you haven’t had the chance to watch that video...

I suggest you go and see it, right after you finish reading this article.

Just click the unlocked icon above now — that says “Basic Options Trades,” and you’ll be taken directly to the video.

Now, onto today’s VIP content.

Trading vs. Investing.

It’s easy to make the mistake of using the words “trading” and “investing” interchangeably, thinking they mean the same thing.

But knowing the difference between the two — and when to use them — can have a powerful impact on your portfolio.

Because trading ... and investing ... are two totally different approaches to the market ... with totally different goals in mind.

If you hold a stock for 12 months or more – it’s an investment, not a trade.

If you’re in and out of a position in less than 12 months — it’s a trade, not an investment.

Investing Is a Long-Term Strategy

Investing is a traditional approach to the market.

It’s designed to build wealth slowly.

For example...

Apple is an excellent stock – and the ultimate example of a good, old-fashioned investment...

It has a long history of solid capital appreciation. 

In just the past 10 years, shares of Apple are up over 1,000%.

It’s a classic buy-and-hold stock — your greatest rewards come over holding shares over the long haul.

Trading Is Different

With any trading strategy, you’re looking to take advantage of short-term trends, with the goal of producing quick profits from specific price movements.

Investing and Trading Both Deserve a Place in Any Portfolio

Investing for the long-term ... combined with short-term trades ... can have a powerful impact on total returns.

See, most stocks are simply not built for trading.

Stocks are an investment. You’re buying a piece of a company.

To make money in stocks – you need a lot of other investors who also think that the company is a good investment to push the share price higher.

That can take some time.

That’s why — if you’re going to trade — I recommend trading with options.

Options Are Designed to Trade

They’re used by professionals to hedge risk and collect consistent profits... without needing to own any of the stocks they’re trading.

And unlike most stock dividends...

Options trading can be one of the most effective ways to generate income.

Which is exactly what my “Profit Framing” is designed to do.

Options for Income vs. Investing for Income.

Many people who invest in stocks are also looking to generate income from dividend payments.

It’s a great strategy, but again, it’s a LONG term way to build wealth.

Understanding the difference between trading and investing...

And knowing how each one can fit into your personal portfolio...

Will set you apart from the majority of people out there — whether they’re “investors” or “traders.”

That’s it for today’s exclusive VIP content.

Tomorrow, I have another video for you that I think you’re really going to enjoy.

It may be a little different from anything you may have seen before...

Because in tomorrow’s video...

I’m going to show you how Profit Framing lets you take advantage of the way the market really works...

Hint: It’s actually the opposite of how most people think it works.

That’s in tomorrow’s video — so watch your inbox closely.

I’m Ian King.

Thank you for being one of my VIPs.

And I’ll “see” you tomorrow.

The dividend yield is around 1.27% or 1.25%

As for the "At that rate, double the money in 36 years" claim. Well, that assumes 0 price change in 36 years for the S&P.

I suppose if he stated "if there is no price change in the S&P, it would take over 55 years (that is the correct # assuming 1.27%) to double your money" that would be OK.

As for the 7, 2, 18% and 3 weeks claims, were those #s in the promo? If so there are OK. If not, we need to see where this is coming from.

If the 18% was in the promo, you can even boost the "9 times better" to 18 / 1.27% = "14 times better".

But before you do that, we need to make sure the 7, 2, 18% and 3 weeks are in the promo or get the proof.

As for 17 times faster that would be OK if everything else checks out.
