Diversification does not guarantee a profit nor protect against loss.
*Securities based lending and borrowing on margin are not suitable for all investors.
** Selling a call option provides an upfront premium that increases current yield on the stock position. Investors receive immediate liquidity and are hedged to the extent of the premium received, but at a significant downside price risk, and forfeit upside appreciation above the call strike. Options involve unique risks, tax consequences and commission charges and are not suitable for all investors. When appropriate, options should comprise a modest portion of an investor's portfolio. Prior to making any options transactions, investors must receive a copy of the Options Disclosure Document which may be obtained from your financial advisor, from theocc.com/about/publications/character-risks.jsp. Supporting documentation for any claims (including any claims made on behalf of options programs or the options expertise of sales persons), comparison, recommendations, statistics, or other technical data, will be supplied upon request.
