Cabot Launches New Advisory, Cabot Options Trader


SALEM, Massachusetts May 27, 2010—Cabot Heritage Corp., a leading publisher of investment newsletters, today announced the debut of a new advisory called Cabot Options Trader, which intends to give active investors specific weekly put and call recommendations based on a time-tested options investing strategy. The first issue will be published on June 7, 2010.

Cabot president, Timothy Lutts, said the new publication is designed for investors who want to maximize profits while minimizing risk in both up and down markets. “Cabot Options Trader will recommend trading on both the upside and the downside, respecting that the market moves in cycles.”

Cabot decided to offer an advisory on options because when Cabot has surveyed subscribers over several years, the top request has been for advice on options trading.

“Options hasn’t been our expertise,” said Lutts. “So we looked for a strong expert outside the Cabot organization. We’re delighted that our new editor is Rick Pendergraft. He’s an experienced investment adviser, and his options trading system was developed through years of study and experimentation.”

Pendergraft invests primarily in sync with the market’s most likely short-term move, presented in each issue of Cabot Options Trader as the Cabot Options Barometer.

Then Pendergraft looks at individual stocks, looking for patterns. His proprietary software provides precise buy and sell signals, so every day he has a list of opportunities to choose from. Finally, he looks at how these stocks have done after previous signal from his system, and recommends those that have had the best record of success with this system.

Cabot Options Trader recommends one or two well-researched, high-probability options trades each week, except on the rare occasion when Pendergraft deems it more prudent to do nothing. He’ll tell subscribers when to close out each trade with email alerts between regular issues.

Cabot Options Trader’s recommendations are short-term, with an average holding period of 15 trading days. “It’s about jumping on new opportunities when they present themselves. And it’s about taking profits quickly and moving to the safety of cash when there are no great opportunities,” explained Lutts.

Cabot Options Trader will be offered at an introductory price of $497 per year.
