ABC shares are trading at 60 $US, and a Call Writer wants to sell calls for 65 $US with a one-month maturity. If the share price remains below $65 and the options run out, the Call Writer keeps the shares and can collect another premium by rewriting calls. If the stock rises above $115.00, the option buyer exercises the option and you must provide the 100 shares at $115.00 per share. You`ve always made a profit of $7.00 per share, but you`ve missed any upside potential above $115.00. If the stock does not exceed $US 115.00, keep the shares and premium income of 37 $US. Option contracts give buyers the opportunity to get a large investment in a stock at a relatively low price. In isolation, they can make large profits when a stock rises. They can also result in a 100% loss of the premium if the call option is worthless, as the underlying share price does not exceed the exercise price. The advantage of buying call options is that the risk is always limited to the premium paid for the option. Investors can also buy and sell different call options at the same time, creating a call gap. These limit both the potential profit and the loss of the strategy, but are, in some cases, less costly than a single call option, since the premium levied on the sale of one option compensates for the premium paid for the other.
A call option can be compared to a put that gives the holder the right to sell the underlying at a certain price at or before expiration.

The use of options is a form of leverage that allows an investor to make a bet on a stock without having to buy or sell the shares directly. You take a look at the call options for the following month and see that there is a 115.00-call trading at $0.37 per contract. So they sell a call option and receive the premium of $37 ($0.37 x 100 shares), which corresponds to an annualized income of about four percent. Both types of contracts are call and set options, which can be bought both to speculate on the direction of stocks or stock indices, or can be sold to generate income. For stock options, a single contract includes 100 shares of the underlying stock.

The terms of an option contract indicate the underlying security, the price at which that security can be settled (exercise price) and the expiry date of the contract. A standard contract includes 100 shares, but the share amount can be adjusted for fractional shares, special dividends or mergers. Before entering into a call option agreement, make sure that you are familiar with the concept of option shares, how they work and when you can exercise a right to buy or sell. You should also review any shareholder agreements or other agreements that may affect your ability to enter into an appeal option agreement.
