The Collar Strategy

The Collar Strategy

Online Streaming Video Program with Downloadable Workbook

Covered call writing is a cash-generating strategy that lowers our cost basis thereby improving our opportunities for successful investments. It involves a long stock position (we buy the stock) and a short option position (we sell the call option). The collar strategy adds a third component to this trade, a protective put. This 3-legged trade creates a floor on the downside and a ceiling on the upside. When structured properly, we are protected against a catastrophic share price decline and enjoy a net credit on the option side.
