What is a covered call?
A simple income strategy for neutral to slightly-bullish situations when you are willing to sell your stock at strike price A. If you own 100 shares of the underlying stock, you can use a covered call to generate income or sell your position at a favorable price.
If the stock reaches strike price A, the call will be assigned and your stock will be sold (but at a profit!). If it stays below the strike, you will collect the full premium to make a bit of income. The downside is that you could part ways with your stock at a price much lower than the current stock price, leaving potential profit on the table.
