Hedging Dividend Socks

  1. As we all know there's high yield opportunities galore in this environment. The flip side is price risk. Clipping 10% dividends is little comfort if the issue breaks 20%.

    Options of course reflect a high yielders positive carry.

    Throw some hedging ideas at me.
  2. ?...........at-the-money, shorter-dated, covered calls? :confused:
  3. You got me thinking about something.
  4. Write some naked puts to get into them & then sell calls against them

    Thats one that comes to mind. At least that would drop your break-even price on the entry.
