Call Premium Fortune

Albert Einstein is rumored to have said that compound interest is the greatest invention in human history. Even a relatively modest return of 1% per month can make you rich if compounded over a long enough period of time.

Covered call investing is not a get-rich-quick strategy. It is a game of patience, and it rewards the patient. You can double your money in 5.8 years if you can get 1%/month (or in only 3 years if you can get 2%/month). You can quadruple your money in as little as 11.7 years at 1%/month.

The key is to target a bit more than 1% per month (maybe 1.3%/month) so that if you miss a month or two, the other months will make up for it. We discuss this concept in our blog article on Compound Interest.

Which Expiration Date Should You Write?

Everyone knows time decay in options is non-linear. Which is why most people targeting income from selling options choose to sell near month options:

But there are other considerations when choosing which option to write, including volatility, downside protection, and taxes. See our blog article on Time Decay In Options.

Master Limited Partnerships

MLPs pay high dividends and offer pass-through tax deductions. As long as they are generating enough cash to cover their dividend payouts, they can make good covered call candidates since the high dividend yield acts as a natural break on price declines.

To see some example MLPs that pay over 5% dividend and have the cash flow to cover it, check out Master Limited Partnership Covered Calls.
