A Guided Option Selling Plan For Systematic Investors
Options selling, rather than buying, is an approach is used by many top investment professionals. Typically, speculators pay for time value on option trades. Very often they overpay. We seek to be the seller of time value in those situations.
By being an option seller, rather than a buyer, we can capture premium yield on a regular basis. This income is sometimes far in excess of dividends or even growth in the stock market during certain cycles.
Think of option selling like being an insurance company. We might have to pay a claim from time to time, but we are constantly collecting premium. Insurance companies end up with pretty big buildings.
We use two transactions with regularity:
- Cash-secured Put Selling: we hold cash in our accounts and sell a put contract against that cash. We collect a premium from somebody betting short-term against a stock that we would be happy to own at a slightly lower price for the long-term. In essence, we are using the speculators short-term nature against him.
- If the stock goes up or stays about the same in the short-term, we simply keep the premium and the option contract expires.
- If the stock falls in price in the short-term, we keep the premium (we keep the premium no matter what) and buy the stock at the previously agreed upon “strike” price. In this scenario, we are paying less for the stock, that we would like to own for the long-term, than it was trading for on the day we sold the contract and have the premium to reduce our total cost as well.
- Covered Call Writing: when our already owned stocks hit resistance ranges, we will usually sell a covered call to take in premium, which is generally representative of a portion of our profit to that date.
- If the stock rises past the agree upon strike price of the call by the contract expiration, then we sell the stock outright to the speculator, taking in all of our profits.
- If the stock falls in price or stays about the same through the expiration of the contract, then we simply keep the premium and the contract expires.
Here is an illustration of the option selling process as it often plays out:
While experience in options is optimal, we will teach you how to use simple option strategies to reduce your risk and increase your income systematically.
