Hi XfatOx,The downside is simple: the possibility of being forced to pay more for the stock than it is worth. Maybe a really, really simple example will be able to express this.But this is the same risk you take when you buy the stock outright.This returns annualizes out to 6.6%. This is definitely not worth taking the risk. Naj can check my math. Compounding the returns is the only way to make sense of the example.So, I think I see what you are saying. The return from the option must be worth as much or more than your expected return on the underlying security. I agree with this.It is my opinion, Jeff also agrees with this and considered it a given. However, I now see your point that this would have been an added issue to discuss.Am I following your logic now?tom
