  Selling Puts
General Index

Probably one of my most favorite investing strategies has to be Selling Puts whether as naked puts or cash secured puts. In its most basic terms when I sell put contracts, I am selling someone the legal right to assign (or put) shares to me at the strike price I have agreed to. It's called "Naked" because when I sell the naked put, I have "exposed" myself to assignment and I do not own the shares I have sold the naked put against - so I am naked the shares.

Like any strategy there are pros and cons, but the naked put option trade is not risky, it is the investor who blindly sells puts without understanding the strategy that makes it risky. I hope you enjoy some of these articles.

Leaving aside tax implications involved in covered calls and selling puts, I believe naked put selling is far superior to covered calls and here are my 10 main reasons.
