I went to an Investools seminar this afternoon. I never really got into call and put options but had a basic idea of the concept. I found it interesting to hear the commentator mentioned using covered calls. He asked everyone how they would making 2,3, 5 or more % each month on your stock without having to sell it but merely renting it out. He said the way the covered call works is say you buy a stock for $18.75 share and then buy the covered call for whatever your commission is (say $7). The covered call gives someone the option to buy your shares (he gave example of 300 shares) for some price higher than what you bought it at (say 19.10/share). He said that if the stock stays below 19.10 then you would get $105 (for this example) and still own your stock. He said this was a great way to make money on stocks regardless of what it does price wize. Interesting concept. Anyone have any ideas on this? I know what is going through my mind but curious what others think? Like I said, I don;t trade options so I was wondering what others thought about this.
