About The Antagonist

Stocks and Options Resources Designed for Beginners and People with Small Accounts

The purpose of The Antagonist is to help you generate extra income in the stock market, even if you have a full-time job, a full-time family, and full-time life!

I provide you with easy-to-understand educational articles, financial insights, stock and options research, recommendations, and model portfolios.

Who is The Antagonist for?

Whether you are brand new to investing and trading, or just want to sharpen your skills, you’ll find plenty of relevant—and profitable—material here.

Also, my portfolios and recommendations are designed to be accessible to everyone. Even if you have a very small account, you can still mimic our trades.

A special note about options:

Most of our new Antagonist community members have little-to-no experience with stock options when they join us. If that describes you, I encourage you to give options trading a chance. You can multiply your returns many times over, even if you have a small account.

Options are also much simpler and safer than most people think. And, you don’t have to do it alone. You’ll find beginner’s guides and a huge amount of other educational material on this site, all written for people with zero experience.

Every aspect of The Antagonist is committed to integrity and service. Therefore, I only offer strategies and guidance that I would want my own family and friends to follow.

What to expect…

Since you’re reading this, I’m guessing that you aren’t interested in achieving ordinary returns in the stock market. That’s good because neither am I.

I also don’t want to wait until retirement to enjoy the rewards of wise investment decisions. Don’t get me wrong. Building a nest egg is essential. But you don’t have to sacrifice the short term for the long term.

My goal is to help you earn short and long-term profits that trounce the overall market and typical buy-and-hold strategies. That’s where the name of this site, The Antagonist, comes from. To beat the market (and as a result, most fund managers), you have to think and act differently than the majority.

The Antagonist accomplishes this by leveraging alternative data sets and non-traditional research methods. This approach often leads to contrarian trades and investment opportunities that you will not read about in the mainline financial media. In fact, I regularly go against what the talking heads are saying—and enjoy outsized returns as a result.

I also understand that everyone has different goals, timelines, and risk tolerances. That’s why I am transparent about the potential profit and risk of each recommendation. I provide the research. You decide if it’s right for you and your goals.

That’s great…but who are you?

My name is Jason Milton. As the son of an immigrant Filipino mother and a Midwestern father, I’ve always been an outsider. I’ve moved over 20 times and have lived in 5 states, 3 countries, and all 4 hemispheres. While my nomad, don’t-fit-in type of life has led to some challenges, it has also proven extremely useful when it comes to understanding markets.

In my 20+ years of data analysis, research, and investing, my outside perspective has helped me regularly spot opportunities before Wall Street and the financial media. I’m particularly focused on leveraging alternative data that others ignore or aren’t even aware of—data that leads to huge profits.

This doesn’t require betting on penny stocks or finding the next unicorn biotech company (although I’m not against either of those). You can make plenty of money off boring, blue chip stocks if you place the right kind of trades.

My point is that I don’t chase trends, popular opinion, or discriminate against market caps or sectors. Instead, I let the data lead me to the answer. It might be buying a spread option, or it could be trading a stock that moves sideways for weeks (yes, you can make handsome profits even when a stock’s price barely moves up or down).

Is my strategy flawless? Of course not! Anyone who claims to have a system that can predict the market is lying. I simply analyze data and exploit favorable mathematical odds to make trades that outperform the market.

On a personal note, I’m married and have 4 children (3 sons and 1 daughter). I’m also the founder and CEO of Milton Research LLC, a consulting firm dedicated to growing small businesses, nonprofit organizations, and schools (both TK-12 and higher education).

Don’t miss out on profit opportunities!
