Looking more into covered calls these days. Let's say you own 100 stock of X that is priced currently at 40. You want to put in a limit sell @ 50. I realized that it could be better to sell a covered call (without buying more stock) at 50 then it is to put in a conditional limit sell. Is there something I'm missing here?

Thanks!
