Covered Calls

I was lucky to be taught options trading by a gentleman who helped write the options portion of the Series 7 Exam for brokers. Over the years I have developed some simple and repeatable strategies for option selling that can generate huge annual income and allow for significant capital appreciation all while managing risk.

Every Tuesday morning I will host "The "Covered Call" Call" via webinar so that you can learn valuable option selling techniques and get current trades for our very carefully selected investment universe.

Through the end of February 2021 The "Covered Call" Call will be open to the public. After February, it will only be available for members of Margin of Safety Investing.

"The "Covered Call" Call" Is For

Option selling is not for everyone. "The "Covered Call" Call" is for investors:

  • with at least a basic understanding of options who want to learn more...
  • with six and seven figure accounts...
  • who are generally retired or near retirement...
  • who want added income for a total return approach to investing...
  • who want to manage risk first...

While anyone can look at option selling, the fact is, because options mostly trade with underlying stock allotments of 100 shares, a six or seven figure account is what is needed to use option selling strategies effectively.

Smaller and younger accounts ought to still be focused on growth, not income generation techniques.

Growth investors should be watching our Stocks Of The Week webinar on Mondays for the growth stocks and the swing trading segment at the end. Option sellers will want to watch the Stocks of the Week webinar as well for depth on stocks and to understand what the traders are doing.

Option Selling Is A Pro Move

Option selling is a professional technique to exploit speculative investors fear and greed.

By selling covered calls and cash-secured puts, we can collect income and manage the risk in our portfolios.

The tricks to using options properly begins with with two things:

  • knowing your companies and ETFs well.
  • using overbought and oversold technical signals properly.
