Collect Cash with Put Selling (GIS)
# <center>At the end of long bull markets invest in the strongest companies.</center>

There are companies that can gain in value even during the worst of stock market declines. These include businesses like retail behemoth Walmart (WMT), fast-food giant McDonald's (MCD), self-storage firm Public Storage (PSA), grocery chain Kroger (KR), toymaker Hasbro (HAS), paint maker Sherwin-Williams (SHW), garbage collector Waste Management (WM), and banking firm Wells Fargo (WFC).

These stable names are great for trading for income by selling options.  To profit from selling a put option investors make money if a stock rises, holds steady or declines a little. 

Today's stable name is $32 billion packaged-food maker General Mills (GIS).  Profit from a large assortment of great brands including Cheerios (cereal), Betty Crocker (baking), Pillsbury (the "Doughboy"), Nature Valley (granola bars), Yoplait (yogurt), Old El Paso (Mexican-inspired food), Häagen-Dazs (ice cream), and Blue Buffalo (pet food).

General Mills continues to generate about $16.6 billion in sales which grew 8% over the last 12 months. General Mills also earns fantastic profits of 11.5% and growing earnings per share.  Plus shareholders are rewarded with a 3.7% dividend.

Shares have had a rough 2 year period but with the stock price above the 200 DMA (daily moving average) the stock is in a strong uptrend that should continue.

## Trade details:
Sell to open, the July 19, 2019, $52.50 puts on General Mills for $1.80 using a limit order.  Earn a 3.4% payment for agreeing to purchase shares at a slight discount to current trading prices. 

At expiration if shares are above $52.50: put sellers will keep the $1.80 for a 21.2% annualized return. 

At expiration if shares are below $52.50: put sellers will buy shares at a cost basis of $50.7 per share. Then you can collect potential dividends and sell call options for more income.

Use stop loss at $45.50. Shares will have fallen below its 200-DMA. So it is best to protect capital and take a small loss.

Profit today by selling put options.
