Reducing Risk with Options

Options Jive

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

Making a transition to options may seem daunting due to perceived complexity.

In the segment today, Tom and Tony look at two strategies that are easy to implement and have less risk than buying 100+ shares of stock.

Specifically, they look at:

  • The Covered Call, which limits the profit potential of a long stock position in exchange for a premium.

  • The Cashed Secured Put, which collects premium each month while eventually purchasing 100 shares at the strike price that was sold.

If you are new to options or looking to refresh on these classic strategies, this is definitely a segment you do not want to miss!
