Stock Option Investment Advice

Options Strategy Popularity

Over some years now, we’ve been asking our PowerOptions free trialers and subscribed users what strategies they use most, here are the results…

Covered Calls 4640 42%
Credit Spreads 2793 25%
Long Calls & Puts 1553 14%
Naked Puts 1195 11%
Married Puts 858 8%
11039 100%

Note: This informal survey is a little biased as we are not showing any of the other dozen or so options strategies that the PowerOptions tools support. Those other strategies represent about 1290 votes or 11%. This poll also doesn’t allow for multiple answers and that introduces some bias as well since I believe many options investors are employing multiple options strategies in their trading.

I thought anyone trading options or researching options would be interested to know how the option strategy interest compares in popularity with those of their fellow investors.
