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.
