How to Turn Your Stocks into ATMs I’m sure we’ve all done it.

You buy a stock hoping it will move much higher. Instead, it doesn’t move at all for months. So you get stuck with a stock that’s going nowhere.

It can be really frustrating.

And if the stock doesn’t pay a dividend, you don’t make any money. If it pays quarterly dividends, you still have to wait three months to get a check.

But what if you could extract money from this stock every single month? What if you could turn it into your personal ATM?

Well, there’s a strategy that allows you to do just that, and we’ll be using it in Pure Income. This strategy will allow you to immediately extract cash from your equity positions… even if a company doesn’t pay dividends. And the payments you receive can be larger than typical dividend distributions.

How to Extract Cash from Your Equity Portfolio I’m talking about selling covered calls. Let me explain how it works.

When you buy a call option, you’re buying the right (but not the obligation) to buy a stock at a set price at an agreed upon future date. As I mentioned in “The 5% Monthly Income Secret”report, it’s extremely hard to make money buying options.

So we’ll look at the other side of the trade. We’ll only sell call options.

When you sell a call option, you’re selling someone else the right to buy your stock at a set price in the future. We’re taking the cash up front and agreeing to sell the stock we own for more than we’ve paid for it.

Selling “covered” calls simply means we own enough shares to cover the liability should the buyer of the call option exercise it, forcing us to sell our shares. In other words, we’ll have our shares “called away.”

When you sell a call option, you collect the premium regardless of what happens. But the trade has two possible out-comes:

1. The option expires worthless and you collect the entire premium without any obligation; 2. The buyer exercises the option and you end up selling your shares at the strike price.

Let’s take a closer look at those two possible outcomes. And I’ll show you why selling call options is a great way to boost your income.

1) The Option Expires Worthless

Let’s say we bought shares of Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) at $25. As of October 17, 2012, the stock is trading at $29.59. So we have a gain of about 18%. And we also collected a dividend of $0.20 last month.

But we want more income, and Microsoft won’t pay another dividend until mid-December. That’s where covered calls come in.

We’ll sell the January 31 call option. The option’s current price is $0.60. But since one option contract covers 100 shares, we’ll collect $60 ($0.60 x 100) for every contract we sell.

This recommendation would look like this in my trade alert:

Sell, to open covered, the MSFT Jan 2013 31 call (MSFT130119C00031000) for about $0.60.

So we’re getting other investors to pay us up front for the right to buy our shares at a price 24% higher than the pur-chase price – doesn’t that sound great?

And keep in mind that the premium we collect in this case is three times the dividend Microsoft paid us. We’ve tripled our dividends, while locking in a higher price for our stock.

And, as long as we continue to hold the stock, we can sell other rounds of calls to generate more income. Now, let’s take a look at the risks of this strategy.

2) The Buyer Exercises the Option

The second outcome is that our shares are called away. If the stock closes above the strike price at expiration, we’ll keep the premium and sell our shares for the strike price. So our profit is equal to the premium plus the difference between the prices at which we bought and sold shares (the “capital gains.

Let’s go back to our Microsoft example. Let’s say Microsoft closed at $32 at expiration date. The buyer will exercise the option, and we’ll have to sell our shares for $31, the strike price.

So we get $6 ($31-$25) in capital gains and $0.60 from selling the option for a total gain of $6.60. That’s a total gain of 26.4%.

That’s the worst case scenario! A 26% gain sounds pretty good to me.

Of course, by selling call options we limit our upside potential. That’s the “catch” of selling covered calls.

We sell off our potential for enormous gains. If Microsoft jumps to $60, for example, you could be kicking yourself for selling the stock for just $31.

But the purpose of selling covered calls is to generate income, not capital gains.

As the name suggests, our focus in Pure Income is to generate income. Any capital gains are a bonus.

I will tell you this… we won’t sell call options on stocks we think have lots of upside potential. So we’ll only sell calls against stocks we wouldn’t mind selling at the agreed upon price.

The Anatomy of a Call Option

Premium: The option’s price. This is the amount we’ll collect when we sell calls. Expiration Date: Stock options expire on the third Friday of the month.

Exercise: When a call buyer “exercises” his option, he engages his right to buy the stock at the strike price. Strike Price: The price at which the buyer can “exercise” the option. When you sell a call option, you are required to

sell shares at the strike price, if the buyer exercises his option. In the Money: Calls are “in the money” if the price of the stock is HIGHER than the strike price. (A call with a $31 strike price is “in the money” if the stock is trading above $31, for example, $32.50.)

Out of the Money: Calls are “out of the money” if the price of the stock is LOWER than the strike price. (A call with a

You can also use this strategy in IRAs, which give you the additional benefit of deferring taxes.

Selling covered calls is one of the easiest and most profitable income-generating strategies you’ll ever see. So make sure you read my report How to Unlock Your Account for Extreme Income to learn how to set up your account for call selling. Regards,
