At Capital Wealth Planning, LLC, we work as a money manager in Naples Florida, offering wire houses and regional broker-dealers throughout the country, covered call portfolios through managed account WRAP platforms. The services provided are that of a registered investment advisor and include: managed portfolios, dividend paying stocks, income portfolio, covered calls, cash secured puts and many others.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Capital Wealth Planning, LLC, (CWP) is an SEC registered investment adviser. SEC Registration does not imply a certain level of skill or training. Capital Wealth Planning, LLC only transacts business in states where it is properly registered or in compliance with applicable state regulations. Individualized responses that involve actual or contemplated securities transactions or the rendering of personal investment advice for compensation will not be made absent compliance with all applicable investment adviser regulation requirements. Please contact CWP if there are any questions.
Capital Wealth Planning and its representatives are in compliance with the current registration requirements imposed upon registered investment advisors by those states in which it maintains clients. Capital Wealth Planning may only transact business in those states in which it is registered or qualifies for an exemption or exclusion from registration requirements. The results achieved by individual clients will vary and will depend on a number of factors including the particular underlying investments and their dividend yield, option market liquidity, interest rate levels, implied volatility, and the client’s expressed return and risk parameters at the time the service is initiated and during the term. Past performance is not a guarantee of future returns. Investing in options involves risk that must be considered and reviewed with a professional prior to investing. This website is not intended for the giving of investment advice to any single investor or group of investors.
Covered call option cash flow for any portfolio will vary depending on actual portfolio positions, option premiums received, individual security price volatility, and general stock market volatility. Positions covered by call options may be called away, creating realized capital gains or losses. Cash flow is not guaranteed over any period. More information may be found in CWP’s Form ADV.
RISKS TO CONSIDER:
While CWP takes considerable care in reducing the possibility of having shares called away, there can be no guarantee that the owner of the call option will not exercise the option prior to CWP’s repurchase of the sold option.
The actual income from the strategy will depend, to a large extent, on the target price of the underlying security. Therefore, the amount of incremental cash yield is predominantly determined by investors’ individual risk tolerances and willingness to sell the underlying position.
Covered call writing can provide limited downside protection. It does not, however, eliminate downside risks. Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors.
