Stock or Options | Risk Adjustments

tasty Extras

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

As a natural continuation of our Position Defense segment last week, in today’s Stocks or Options, we speak directly to the concept of ‘risk adjustments’. With stock, we are reminded that there are simply no ways to improve break-even points or increases probabilities of profit, without correspondingly adding size and increasing risk. However, with options, we see that with something as simple as a Covered Call or Covered Put, we are able to achieve better BEPs and POPs, all at a lower level of directional risk.

If you’ve been told or believe that options automatically mean ‘more risk’, then this segment is for you!
