Call options basics are really easy so I don’t want to spend too much time but these are just investments that give you the right to buy a stock at a certain price up to a date in the future. The best part about call options is they allow you to do things in a stock that might be too expensive otherwise. For example, you need over $3,000 to buy a share of Amazon but I can use call options for a fraction of that price.
In fact, I’ll show you how to use Amazon call options to buy the shares for hundreds instead of thousands or to get a discount of as much as 15% on the stock.
The covered call strategy is owning a stock and then selling call options against it. The call option buyer pays you a premium now for that right to buy the shares later, so that’s cash you collect right now. It’s a great way to turn your stocks into dividend stocks without them paying a dividend.
You can sell covered calls for income, to reduce risk or get discounts but there are risks. The biggest risk is that the share price jumps and you miss out on some of the gains but I’ll show you how to set the strike price of your call option so you still make money.
Starting covered calls trading is very easy. All you really need is to know what strike price and what date you want to sell against your stocks. That’s going to make sure you maximize your cash flow but minimize the chance of losing your shares.
