Greetings, and welcome back for another installment of our ongoing options series. In case you’re just joining us, this series is designed to help you understand how options can be used in a portfolio to enhance returns and minimize risk.
In our last installment, we began a discussion on how to use deep-in-the-money calls to purchase stocks for half price (or less). Today, we’re going to continue that conversation, further illuminating the benefits one can derive by using call options in place of owning shares of stock.
