covered combination


An option strategy involving concurrent transactions that places an investor on both sides of the market in order to benefit from any possible move in the price of a stock. The strategy is executed by selling a call option and a covered put option, both out-of-the-money with the same expiration date for which the seller receives cash premiums from each. A covered put sale requires that the stock of the underlying security be held in an account; however, the premium will lower the cost basis of owning the stock.
