«Passive Income Beckons.»


Stock investors love their dividends. Getting quarterly checks for your ownership stake in the world’s great companies warms the soul. It also serves as a reminder of the income-producing potential of equity investing. And did I mention the best companies keep increasing their paydays? Apple, for instance, just bumped its quarterly dividend another 5%.

Who doesn’t love a raise?

Here’s how you can take it to a new level. The options market offers the potential to supercharge your cash flow with strategies like covered calls. The S&P 500 offers a dividend yield of only 1.3% these days. That’s an annualized number, so it takes a full year to capture. The beautiful thing about a covered call is you could score 1.3% every month. Of course, the returns vary, and if the stock drops, you could see a drawdown in the position.

Nonetheless, learning how to sell calls against your stock positions will show you the income-producing potential of options contracts.
