These covered call writing strategies seem to me to be a very risky way to earn 10%. You have little upside and the downside could be substantial. IBKR, trades at a 20 PE and traded close to 30% lower than its current price during the year. If it drops just 1.5 points between now and January you will lose money on the trade. Then you will be looking for a trade that gets you 20% over the following 7 months to get back to your 10% goal :-)
