""If the stock runs away to the upside, it will be called, or you'll spend a bunch buying your call back. If the stock crashes, the premium doesn't compensate for your loss on the stock. If you select your strike well, either the stock just misses getting called or it gets called"" I do like to do this with dividend paying stocks, and love it when the option expires. I just sold my second call on HNP without losing the postion. Check out the chart if it interests you. I belive the dividend is about 4 1/2% "but it sure as heck isn't treasuries"...I sold off all my zero coupon treasuries (STRIPS), but that article by Shilling? that someone posted has me intrigued. I think I was right on the lithium shortage...or maybe the pharmacies are all closed on Sundays.
