What is a Covered Call?

A covered call is an options strategy that owns 100 shares and sells one Call option, usually above the current stock price. This bullish options strategy 'sacrifices' some of the upside of the position to collect premiums and generate an income stream from stocks you own. Covered calls trades perform best on stocks you are bullish on, but don't expect a significant price increase in the short term. The covered calls strategy also pairs well with dividend-paying stocks.

When looking for trade ideas, you can use our options scanner for covered calls with a high probability of profit and annualized return, as well as steady dividends, robust fundamentals, or an excellent score to increase your likelihood of profit and reduce your risk.

What is AKUS Implied Volatility (IV)?

Implied volatility (IV) is one of the most critical measures for options traders. It is used to tell us if an option is expensive or cheap. High Implied Volatility is better for Covered Calls trades, while low IV is usually less profitable for Covered Calls.

As of 27 Sep 2022, AKUS stock IV is 122.06 and the percentile is 20.24% Subdued.

We've conducted thorough research into the IV, and we see that it is mean-reverting - meaning after a high value, we can expect a lower value in a higher probability (and vice versa). We published our Implied volatility research in our blog. You can read more there.
