Chad is our in-house income and investment research expert. He earned two bachelor’s degrees from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in finance and economics. 

Chad developed three options-trading systems that readers of Banyan Hill use to grow their wealth.

Chad joined Banyan Hill in 2012. He ran our top-performing service in 2016, Pure Income. In Pure Income, Chad finds the best opportunities to generate steady monthly income.

Chad’s Quick Hit Profits takes advantage of a stock’s surge after a company’s earnings announcement. Chad’s system has a “profit trigger” that alerts him to the best time to trade following a company’s earnings announcement. He also has a system that pinpoints when a stock goes from lagging the market back to leading — all a part of what he likes to call the “shakeout territory” — and helps him jump into a stock just in time before it rises.

The Fast Lane Profits service combines two of the most powerful forces in the stock market: relative strength and momentum.

Chad’s system compares a handful of indexes and their relative performance to look for which one is set to pick up momentum on a trend — in either direction — and tells him the right time to jump into the “fast lane” to scoop up profits. This strategy gets you in and out of a trade in just a couple weeks … many times in a matter of a few days or less.

Chad also contributes to our daily options e-letter, True Options Masters. He and colleague Michael Carr share their insights and spot the best opportunities in the options market every day — even for beginners.
