It's no secret that the Covered Call strategy is one of the more popular option plays—the investor buys 100 shares of stock/ETF and sells a call against it to increase returns and generate income.  However, buying 100 shares of stock might not be the only way to go as it ties up a lot of capital.  Luckily, there may be another way.  Investors can use LEAPS options to mimic a long stock position and reduce the strategy cost (or cash outlay).  Join OIC as we explore the alternative strategy known as the Poor Man's Covered Call!
