Chapter 1. Setting the Ground Rules

Chapter 1. Setting the Ground Rules

In any discussion of an investment strategy, we begin with a series of assumptions. Our assumptions tie in to your conservative profile: You have prequalified stock; you believe these stocks will rise in value over time; fundamentals are essential in stock selection; you would be happy to buy more shares; and there are a number of companies that meet your standards. We have identified 10 companies that make up a “model portfolio” to illustrate the options strategies in this book.

This book explains how conservative investors can employ option strategies to (a) enhance current income without increasing market risks; (b) protect long-positions through options used for insurance; and (c) use options as a form of contingency in volatile market conditions.
