Interested to survey the opinion of options vets on this board. I have recently retired from a lengthy career and have several $MM tucked away in managed assets with a trusted financial planner. Needing something to do with my time, I am curious about the possibility of taking up stock option writing with a portion of my assets as a full time occupation. Question for the board members is the following. How achievable do you see a 15% annual return for options writing, after a guy studies for a good year? I would set aside $1MM of the assets to do option writes. This would only meet my goals if I can convince myself that 15% per year is attainable. I welcome any thoughts from those of you on the board. My understanding of options is good, I have watched from a distance for many years yet I would need to spend time studying before venturing into the market on my own.
