SHLD puts have been quite profitable in recent years when sold on dips like we are seeing now.

Ah, but it ain't what it used to be.
Time was you could get $20 for a $40 put.

I try (vainly) to stay away from things that are cash flow negative.
When Sears went that way I wound things up.
Might look again at some point.

Currently my wild-risk juicy-puts ride is Chesapeake.
