Joseph R. Hooper has been a property developer, stockbroker, and bank owner. He is the founder of Compound Stock Earnings and is now a financial educator, radio talk show host, and one of the world's foremost experts on covered calls. In the early 1980s, Hooper formed a bank holding company, purchased banks, directed their operations, and then sold them in the early 1990s. Later, he joined Merrill Lynch as a private client advisor, using his Covered Calls technique for client accounts.

Aaron R. Zalewski has a background in the finance industry, where he worked as an analyst within the investment banking industry. Zalewski left that profession to pursue a career as a full-time investor and is now Director at Compound Stock Earnings. He co-host's Compound Stock Earnings' weekly financial talk-back radio program, Unconventional Wi$dom—The CSE Investment Show, and is coauthor of the book Covered Calls and LEAPS: A Wealth Option.

Edwin L. Watanabe retired after thirty years in the commercial design business after learning the Covered Call and LEAPS techniques from Compound Stock Earning's principals, Joseph Hooper and Aaron Zalewski. During his thirty years in business, Ed traded as a hobby and, like many, pursued the frustrating task of trying to find a technical analysis method that consistently worked. While using the CSE Covered Call and LEAPS techniques for retirement income, Ed found himself with ample time to revisit the technical analysis methods that had frustrated him for thirty years. What followed was a three-year odyssey where he reformulated, tested, and back-tested thousands of combinations of indicators. Finally, he stumbled across a combination that consistently worked and began applying that combination to his Covered Call and LEAPS trading—with staggering results. Ed was averaging the highest monthly returns of any of the thousands of successful traders taught by Compound Stock Earnings.

After sharing this new methodology with CSE principals Joseph Hooper and Aaron Zalewski, Advanced Charting became part of the CSE curriculum and has now been taught and applied successfully by thousands of CSE traders. Ed is now Director of CSE's Advanced Charting program, teaching the CSE 2-Day Advanced Charting Seminar and running the CSE Advanced Charting Platinum Selections service. Ed's teachings have now been responsible for the creation of many millionaires and have allowed thousands of CSE clients to retire earlier than they ever thought possible.
