Why would an investor buy an option to purchase 100 shares of a stock instead of just buying the stock itself? Why would an investor write calls on shares of stock he or she already owns? Or write both puts and calls on that same stock? This plain-talking guidebook explains the strategic motivation behind each of these examples and dozens more, along with the rewards, risks, best outcomes, and worst outcomes for each. In addition, "The Options Strategist" takes an in-depth look at the theory behind options investing.Option pricing, implied and historical volatility, the Greeks, the Black-Scholes Option Pricing Model: for each of these topics, key questions are asked and answered, central arguments are introduced and analyzed, and specific technical terms are demystified to underscore their practical applications (or lack thereof) for options traders and investors. The result is a guidebook that lays a solid foundation for equity option trading and investing.
