Covered Call Strategy



“Keep Calm And Sell Calls.”Steve

Strategy Highlights


Guardian’s Covered Call Strategy is designed to achieve long-term capital appreciation and steady current income. The strategy invests primarily in large capitalization stocks that are considered undervalued and have a track record of dividend growth. In order to increase current income and preserve the potential for long-term capital appreciation, covered call option positions are maintained on all individual stock positions. As options are closed, expire, or are exercised, positions are rolled over in perpetuity or until the underlying stock is sold.
