What is covered stock strategy?

A covered stock strategy consists of writing a call or put that is covered by an equivalent long/short stock position.

Covered Call

A covered call strategy consists of writing a call that is covered by an equivalent long stock position (Long Stock + Short Call). It is a strategy when you expect the stock price to be neutral or slightly bullish in a short-term period. Using the covered call strategy, you can earn a premium from writing calls while at the same time appreciate all benefits of underlying stock ownership. However, it also limits the profit potential of a long stock position while the risk is still substantial if the stock price declines.

Covered Put

A covered put strategy consists of writing a put that is covered by an equivalent short stock position (Short Stock + Short Put). It is a strategy when you expect the stock price to be neutral or slightly bearish in a short-term period. Using the covered put strategy, you can earn a premium from writing puts while holding a short stock position. However, it also limits the profit potential of a short stock position while the risk is still substantial if the stock price goes up.
