"For years, academics and investors have been aware of the limitations of so-called Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT). Absent an obvious alternative, many continue to apply MPT, presumably unaware of a superior alternative. In an ambitious effort, Michael Lovelady demonstrates a better way to minimize downside portfolio risk while achieving higher risk-adjusted yields. Lovelady does not dismiss MPT but blends it with quantitative investing to fill the void between theory and reality through his skillful development of synthetic annuity strategies. While there are no panaceas in life, synthetic annuities seem to offer a significant improvement over conventional wisdom." -- Donald M. DePamphilis , Ph.D, Clinical Professor of Finance, Loyola Marymount University; and author of Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities, Sixth Edition "The author brings together the best of both the options and stock worlds in this very practical book. Smarter than most hedge funds, he spells out specific strategies and how to deal with inevitable problems. Unlike most fluff trading books, you'll know what you are doing and why you are doing it. By the time you are done, you will definitely reevaluate the strategy behind your own portfolio. What more can you ask for in any book?" -- Michael Benklifa , author of Profiting with Iron Condor Options , President of Othello Consulting "Michael Lovelady explains a range of options strategies in a concise and clear manner to help you rethink your approach to risk and timing, and to the overall market as well. Michael shows why options should not be relegated to trading accounts, or the 5% to 10% normally allocated to alternative investments, but have an important role to play across all aspects of the portfolio. A creative new take on investing presented in a series of visuals accessible to anyone interested in new ideas: Excellent!" -- Michael C. Thomsett , author of Options Trading for the Conservative Investor Options-based "synth
