Covered Call Table Risk Levels

In summary, the 3 "Raw Data Tables" and the 25 table generally carry the highest level of risk. Moving up the scale, we feel that the Out-of-The-Money and In-The-Money tables generally carry a little less risk than the above-mentioned tables. Our reasons for this belief are that in most cases the company will have earnings, will have earnings growth over last year and we do not have a limitation with respect to stock share price. Further up the scale are the Div-In and Div-Out Tables. The stocks on this table, we believe, are generally more stable than the stocks mentioned above. Here, the stocks generally have earnings, earnings growth over the preceding year and they pay a dividend. We hope this brief explanation is helpful to you.

NOTE: The covered call selections listed herein are NOT recommendations. The list is a screening tool to help you begin your own research and is intended to save you time looking for covered call candidates. The selections are generally consistent with the criteria we have set forth, but the decision to invest in a particular stock should only be made after you have completed your own research and consulted a qualified professional. There are many factors to consider before writing a covered call on any given day, including but not limited to, overall market condition, news on a particular stock, technical indicators, earnings projections, and market sentiment.
