The Big BAM Theory of Trading

How to Benefit from Big Audacious Moves!

An EXCITING way to make HUGE option profits is to start with the stocks that are most likely to go “BAM” – to make a BIG AUDACIOUS MOVE.

With your Schaeffer's Options Under $5 subscription, you will benefit from the following:

  • Four to Six Trades Every Month. You will get an average of four to six real-time trade recommendations a month! You’ll receive an email containing both an easy-to-understand trade recommendation and a trade commentary link. Just click the commentary link for greater insight on why we think this recommendation is poised to deliver gains. This link will give you immediate access to the trade commentary and graphs…and also technical, sentiment, and fundamental indicators and parameters. So, you’ll always have the information you need – showing you exactly why we expect the trade to deliver.
  • Receive Closeout Instructions. You’ll receive an email when we recommend closing out each position. So, you’re never left wondering what to do. You just sit back, place the trades, and wait for further instruction.
  • Low-priced Investments. Option premiums no higher than $5.00! That’s just $500 for a single contract, $2,500 for five contracts, and $5,000 for 10 contracts! These very affordable premiums mean you can leverage your investment to capture big potential target profits of 100% or more per trade! Every once in a while we may recommend an option investment that’s slightly higher...but very rarely.
  • Targeted Potential Profits of 100% to even 300%. Because we're basing our options plays on stocks poised to go BAM and make Big Audacious Moves, we will target HUGE potential profits in a time frame of two to six months. With Schaeffer's Options Under $5, we will tell you which stocks have options that are ready to go BAM – and that means BIG profit potential!
  • Schaeffer's Alert Service Command Center. Our online Command Center is available only to our Alert Service subscribers. It provides you with unmatched control over your own investing destiny, allowing you to track all of your trades easily online.
  • Your FREE online trading handbook provides everything you need to successfully trade Schaeffer's Options Under $5, including our specific money management guidelines!

The BIG BAM Trading Theory

Secret #1:
Why Buying on the Cheap is Better

Simply stated: It is much harder for a blue chip stock with a market cap of $280 billion to double its value in a year than it is for a small-cap or mid-size company with a market cap of $1 or $2 billion.

So the first secret to finding Big Audacious Moves is to look at low-priced stocks.

Secret #2:
Take Advantage of Pricing Inefficiencies on Low-Priced Stocks

Many small-cap and mid-cap stocks are wrongly priced, because they do not receive significant coverage by Wall Street analysts. (our little secret!)

The Wall Street Journal wrote that by "...identifying companies with little analyst coverage that are growing in such a way as to attract more later on, you're on your way to finding stock bargains." This is the key to our second secret.

Secret #3:
Get Wholesale Option Prices on Low-Priced Stocks

The model used to price options, called Black-Scholes, operates on the principle of mean reversion. Meaning that the model assumes that price anomalies will correct themselves, rather than feeding on themselves. Of course, the opposite is often true for low-dollar stocks – which is GREAT for you!

In other words, the Black-Scholes model doesn't account for the fact that some of these small- and mid-cap companies will turn out to be rocket ships – perhaps the next big Microsoft or big Walmart – and, that is the BAM!

Secret #4:
Investor Bias Can Work in Your Favor

A $15 stock just looks less intimidating than a $100 stock. It means that stocks priced less than $40 look like good buys – better buys than the $100 stock – and are, thus, more prone to potential upward runs because of investor bias.

Maybe one of the best advantages of investing in options under $5 is the limited exposure. You've got a relatively small amount invested, so you can tolerate the volatility in the market without getting shaken out of your position.

By buying low-dollar options, you can improve your risk/return ratio – particularly with low-priced stocks – investing less and gaining more!


Base your trades on the relationship between Fundamental, Technical, AND Sentiment analysis. At Schaeffer's our proprietary filters and sentiment tools look for stocks where fundamental and technical signs are counter to current investor sentiment.  This creates a perfect contrary investing opportunity.

With over 30 years of trading experience, Schaeffer's Expectational Analysis® (the X-Factor®) is a unique, time-tested approach that uses technical, fundamental and sentiment analysis to uncover the best possible play to build your portfolio.

Now add the Big BAM Trading Theory!

Utilize the Big BAM theory and you have the perfect formula for trading success!

Schaeffer's Options Under $5 is designed for traders who want the thrill of 300% or even higher potential returns but don't like the risk of trying to capture these gains in just days or weeks.
