Sample text

In situations where an investment in stock loses value, stockholders can wait for a rebound. During that time, they are entitled to continue receiving dividends, so their investment is not entirely in limbo. If you are seeking long-term gains, then a temporary drop in market value is not catastrophic as long as you continue to believe that the company remains a viable long-term “hold” candidate; market fluctuations might even be expected. Some investors would see such a drop as a buying opportunity and pick up even more shares.

These work just like listed options in every respect, with one exception: Their life span lasts up to three years. A long-term equity anticipation security (LEAPS) is a long-term option that can be used to solve the problem of time. Unlike the relatively shortlived listed option, LEAPS can be used to expand many strategies that would otherwise be impractical, given the time factor. The long-term option, because of its extended life, can be employed for some strategies that are not practical with shorter-expiration contracts.

But for the seller, the opposite is true. If the buyer exercises the call, the 100 shares of stock have to be delivered by the option seller. In practice, this means you are required to pay the difference between the option’s striking price and the stock’s current market value. As a seller, this means you lose money. Remember, the option will be exercised only if the stock’s current market value is higher than the striking price of the option. The Call Option Example Called Away: You sell a call with a striking price of 40 per share.
