Reader questions have been pouring in. People want to know some of the mechanics of my system and how I have achieved many of my wins -- such as recent victories with Cisco ( CSCO), Chesapeake Energy ( CHK), Texas Instruments ( TXN), Pfizer ( PFE), Cameco ( CCJ) or Caterpillar ( CAT). I have selected three I think are both helpful to rookie and will help readers get on a winning track. Q: I'm a big-time fan of yours and ready to start getting into the investment world. I have an unbelievable amount of respect for what you've done, and I am extremely excited about working with your tips each day. My question is that because I am just starting out, I do not have a ton of capital to start with and I noticed that you wrote in your last articles that you made $1,000 by investing $9,500. Do you suggest not subscribing to your newsletter Nails on the Numbers if I do not have a lot of excess cash right now? -- Nick in MilwaukeeA: Thanks Nick, I appreciate the kind words. In short, you don't need a lot of money to get started with Nails on the Numbers. My system is scalable, and when I say that, I mean you do not have to invest the same dollars I write about in my daily picks. With each of my picks, I shoot for a $1,000 victory. To do that I purchase 10 deep-in-the-Money call contracts. Each one essentially allows me to control 100 shares of the common stock at a fraction of the price. So, if I buy 10 contracts, that's 1,000 shares. Then, I wait for a $1 increase in the option price and I sell for a $1,000 victory.
