In the article, “Sewing Up Profits – Covered Call Investing”, we analyzed the retail fabric market and decided a covered calls stock options strategy was prudent for this segment in light of the popularity of hand made clothing by today’s teens. Two positions were selected for this strategy, and both were profitable returning an average of +2.5%. In article, “Sewing Covered Calls Returns Nice +2.5% in Dec 06”, we again selected retail fabric covered calls positions with options expiration in January of 2007 and the positions generated a nice +2.4% average return.
Wal-Mart (WMT) plans to stop selling fabric in many of its stores; this should be a positive for the retail fabric players.
With Wal-Mart stepping out of the retail fabric business, we’re even more bullish on the retail fabric players and using PowerOptions powerful stock options search tool we searched for covered calls positions with options expiration in February of 2007. The following covered calls stock options positions were found:
