Buy a call option for 2021? Option premiums in gold stocks are in the top 25% of costs in Canada. Gold stocks, inlike FAANGs, don't run up. They move with the markets, up or down. He'd write covered calls of gold stocks, not options. He'd buy only 5-10% of gold in a portfolio.

He bought a put as this stock went down. Healthcare has been under pressure lately. Maybe have a January expiration. It's a sort of defensive stock, so okay to hold onto going into 2019.

It's a sector that's already corrected and has a lot of potential growth. But the option premiums here are rich. This is a covered call on weed and Canopy is the largest cannabis stock. Buy at $41.50 with a $9 call going out to July. If the stock doesn't move, there's over 30% out to July 2019. There's downside protection to $32.30. It's good risk-to-reward.

A strictly defensive buy to park money. Write an option out to June, buying at $118.50 and a $3.75 call and netting $114.75. Excluding dividend, you get a 3.27% return if TLT stays where it is. Downside protection at $114.75. He doubts interest rates will go up much in the coming 12 months.

An extremely conservative way to play the market now. Sell a June 2019 $250 put with a $4 buy, with a return of $6 (if the S&P stays where it is today) and a maximum risk of a $14 loss (if the market crashes). He thinks the overall market in 2019 will go sideways.

$2,000 for his son to invest in? He'd buy a really simple ETF, the XIU, which is basically buying Canada's 60-largest companies. You're buying Canada, including 30% in energy and metals, which is a risk. Or you could try SPY to cover the U.S. market. You could split these two 50/50.
