You've probably heard a dangerous myth repeated by numerous
financial experts and the media. It may have prevented you from
fully enjoying your retirement, or caused you to worry that you
won't have enough money when you do retire.
That myth is that low-interest rates mean you CAN'T earn a
substantial income from your current nest egg.
Today I'm going to show you that this myth is entirely
incorrect. Simply put, low interest rates shouldn't stop you from
safely earning high yield from your investments. I'm going to
show you that you can safely earn 8-12% in income each year -
without going out of your comfort zone.
Ben Bernanke and the Fed have been pushing investors to trade
in their bonds, and buy stocks. And given the low yields from
most fixed income investments, stocks are clearly a better deal.
Today, you can safely collect 2-5% in dividends from safe blue
But that's still far below the 8 - 10% annual returns that
most investors want. So how can you earn this extra income,
without taking on lots of risk?
All you have to do is learn one simple transaction. This easy
to execute strategy could help you collect considerable extra
you already own.
This investment strategy is known as "covered calls." And this
is how it works:
Suppose you own 100 shares of
Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO).
You think the stock is range-bound, and is unlikely to rise much
over the next few months. Shares are currently trading at around
Using a covered call strategy, you can sell a November call at
a strike price of $26. A "call" is simply the right to buy 100
shares. And the strike price is the price at which the
stock will be sold.
So in this example, you're selling another investor the right
to buy your shares anytime between now and November at $26 per
share. In exchange, you'll pocket a "premium" of almost $55 right
Before I go on, it's important to understand why someone would
want to pay you for the right to buy your stock. The reason is
that many investors are gamblers. They like to make a bet that
your stock will go higher.
And that creates an opportunity for you. Because if Cisco
shares stay below $26 by the third Friday in November (88 days
from now), that option expires. You keep the $55 in extra income,
and you still own your Cisco stock.
Now, the biggest risk to this strategy is that it limits your
upside. In this case, your position benefits up to a $26 stock
price. Any gain in the stock beyond $26 is essentially "owned" by
the investor who buys your call. So the maximum per share gain is
$2.28 in stock appreciation ($26.00 - $24.27) plus the $0.55 in
If the stock moves above $26, the option will be exercised and
your shares will be called away. Cisco currently pays an annual
dividend of 2.7%. But you could earn an additional 9.1% of
investment income over the course of the year if you choose to
use this proven strategy. Combined, you could earn an 11.8%
income stream from a blue-chip stock like Cisco with a few,
You can quickly see why so many professional money managers
use this easy strategy for their clients.
