What if it turned out you might be able to earn income on a stock or ETF you already own, while at the same time potentially lowering the impact of a downturn? That's the idea behind option overwriting. With overwriting, like a covered call strategy, you sell options on a position and collect income that could boost your returns or offset part of a drop. But before you start with overwriting, you need details. And you'll get them when you register for this OIC webinar, "Option Overwriting for Income," on May 8 featuring guest speaker Alan Ellman, President at The Blue Collar Investor. Featured topics include:

  • The details about intrinsic value and time value
  • What it means to be covered
  • How to calculate cost basis and returns
  • When to expect early exercise

Alan will also provide plenty of examples, including P&L charts, so that you'll get to see all sides of overwriting as a strategy. Sign up today.
