A few thoughts
This is a interesting time. There will be the January effect, meaning most Januarys are good months in the stock market. This doesn't mean it's a straight line up, there may be a few rocky days, as we've seen yesterday and today. This does present a few opportunities. This post however is about comparing a few covered call trades. I post this so you can get good at figuring out option premiums——meaning time to expiration and implied volatility. I hope you study this in your PAID TO TRADE Home Study Course. NOTE: This course is powerful and right now there is a really powerful discount if you sign up for WIN's TDT.
I was looking at HIMX. The stock is at $5.90 and the $6 calls for January are 30¢ to sell. Think of this. It's a one week trade, expiring next Friday. Oh, these are for the $6 calls. 1,000 shares would be $5,900 or half of that on margin. You'd take in $300 for tying up your stock for eight days—agreeing to sell it for $6. If you actually did sell the stock, you'd make an extra 10¢, or $100. But you make the $300 now whether you sell the stock or not.
Now let's look at the February's. The same $6 call is going for 55¢ to sell. That would be $550 into your account in one day. Your stock is tied up for 5 plus weeks, but where else can you get $2,900 making $550 for a month and a week.
A few more: JC Penneys, JCP is $6.38 and the January $6.50 options are 31¢ to sell. That's quite impressive for one week. you can sell the February $7 call options for 32¢, but you would make quite a bit more if called out at $7.
