Publisher's Summary

Stop settling for ever-decreasing dividend yields and bank CDs that pay less than one percent...and start making your investments work for you again.

If you’re worried about the current market uncertainty, covered calls are your antidote to chaos. You can use them to generate safe returns, no matter what happens to your stock.

It’s like generating rental income on stocks you already own, even if those stocks don’t already pay dividends. This is why with smart covered call writing, you can double your monthly cash flow, making it the perfect income strategy because you can use covered calls to create instant cash, with premiums paid directly into your brokerage account. So, you can use this smart, safe strategy to generate “synthetic dividends” on stocks that you already own.

In fact, you can make as much as 40 percent extra per year by writing covered calls, compared to if you just bought and held the same stock. Perfect for retirement investors.

Covered calls aren’t risky. When used correctly, they actually decrease your risk, and even the most conservative investors can benefit from adding covered call writing to their investment strategy. Even if you know nothing about options, this book will get you right up to speed.

Here is just a fraction of what you’ll discover:

  • The six criteria we use to select the best stocks to write covered calls on
  • The vital difference between covered and uncovered calls
  • Why you shouldn’t write covered calls in an IRA (Many investors make this mistake, but learn why using a regular account will actually save on your tax bill.)
  • How to use covered calls to lower the purchase price of stocks you already own
  • The three rules for adjusting your covered call
  • A simple strategy for selecting the right strike price
  • How to find the best covered call stocks for free (Stock scanning services will charge you $99/month for this information, but our approach costs nothing and lists the exact same companies)
  • How to get started with covered calls if you only have a small account. This is perfect if you want the benefits but don’t have $5,000 or more to invest

Plus, inside the book you get free access to a seven-part video course covering all aspects of profitable investing. So, even if you’ve never used options before, the book walks you through everything, step by step. You’ll find everything explained in plain English, free from technical jargon.

Even if you get stuck, you can always send us an email (provided in the book) or reach out in our private investing community on social media. We’re always happy to help with any questions you might have. And remember, bank CDs will only pay you between zero and one percent. The dividend yield on the S&P 500 is around two percent and five- to 10-year municipal bonds will only pay between two and three percent. But if you use what’s inside this book, you could have the opportunity to get much more than that.

For instance, if you put together a portfolio of three of the best covered call stocks, you could see an average yield of 15 percent per year just from your covered call income. That's two to three times more than you'll see anywhere else. All this from your regular brokerage account, just as easily as you can buy stock. Because, if you know how to buy stocks, you can use covered calls. It’s that simple.

And when you receive just a single premium from one of these covered calls (which is paid into your account instantly) it covers the cost of this book 10 times over.

Don't just set it and forget it. Leverage it.

For the longest time, I was approaching stock investing as if I had all the time in the world, taking things nice and slow, and letting them run their course. I still do but to a lesser extent. But since 2020, my life, finances, and the economy have become more uncertain than ever, so I started to look for ways to make more money sooner but without spending absurd amounts of time or effort to do so. Then I discovered covered calls, with which I can leverage my stock investments and start earning more money from them on a monthly basis. Covered calls, like anything, can be hard to learn on your own, so it's best to learn from an expert. The author of this audiobook knows what they are talking about and lays out the information in a clear and effective format that, to me, doesn't feel like a painful 5 and a half-hour lecture but more like a continuous inflow of valuable "Knowledge!" This audiobook costs way less than a Lamborghini and it saves me the hassle of building a library in my garage, I recommend it.

Details to pay attention to

Covered calls were a mystery to me before listening to this audiobook. I still need to go back and review some of the more technical stuff (thank goodness there is a downloadable .pdf). I have a friend who has been telling me all about covered calls and how it's easy money, I don't think it's easy necessarily, but this book has covered all the bases to ensure that I can start offering covered call options as soon as I possibly want. It was so detailed in making sure the listener is aware of all the risks associated with analyzing the associated risk and leveraging the data to minimize it. I also really enjoyed the factoids about how options came to be in the beginning. It was quite interesting. I am excited to put my newfound knowledge to work and start writing covered calls.

Informative and it works!

I recently retired and was looking for a way to leverage my investments without debt. I had read about covered calls and wanted to learn more about them, and this book did that and more. The author walks you through every step. I’ve started implementing what I learned and my cash flow has already increased. Great read, and even better information. You won’t regret purchasing this book—I know I don’t!

This is a better than a lottery ticket!

This audio book is so well written, and the information is laid out like a red carpet for you. I've read some other books, but they were so complicated and a waste of good money. Playing the stock market can be frightening with all the moving parts however, Freeman Publications spells the "how to" in such detail, that it's simple to understand, as well as implement. I ended up getting a notepad and took notes so I can build a better future for myself because within this audiobook, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3. The narrator's voice is smooth to listen to which for me, made for an awesome listening experience. I found my lottery ticket with this book. Well done! Thank you for spelling it all out along with the little known facts about trading. That part was very intriguing and had no idea about that. I found my Golden Ticket with this book.

So informative!

I can’t believe I didn’t know about the world of covered calls and options trading before this audiobook. I tried looking up covered calls on the internet, but it was hard to understand. This book is a great way to learn how to earn some side income by breaking down everything into easily digestible steps and information. I found it extremely helpful, especially for someone that started with zero knowledge. I’ve been dabbling in ways to earn a little extra income and fine tune my knowledge about investing in general, and this book just took it to another level. The narrator is a really easy and enjoyable to listen to for the duration of the 5 plus hours. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and going to recommend it to some of my friends who are also interesting in investing, options trading, etc.

Now I finally understand a 'put' and a 'call'

With the money printer going brrrr and asset prices running away from most people, trading is seen as a way to get ahead of it all. Problem is, most traders lose money but not with this book. Finally, a sensible way to invest in stocks without the usual gambling. This book will help to mitigate the risk massively.

Excellent Content & Practical Applications!

In the rather confusing Stock Market world, this book did an excellent job at showing me what I need to know about writing covered calls as a beginner.


I enjoyed the great background information given in chapters 1 through 7 which I feel has helped lay a good foundation in my understanding on knowing what I am getting into and its history over Millenia.


Chapters 8 onwards give me a clear idea on how to get started with the practical side of covered calls writing which is a great confidence booster for a beginner.


As if the above was not enough, there’s also a little gold nugget given free with the book (7-part Video Course)! Really, impressed. I’m liking this Freeman Publications!

Covered Calls made Simple!

Stocks are typically overcomplicated by everyone which scares people away from making money from investments. However, this book goes over what Covered Calls are and how you can utilize them to make one greater step closer to Financial Freedom. The narration is clear and the book structure makes it very easy to follow. Certainly recommend!

An Audiobook That Will Clear Your Confusion

This audiobook did what so many others couldn't for me, which was, simplifying what covered call are and what they do . Not only that, it teaches you how to utilize covered calls to gain more access to cashflow and grow your overall portfolio. With so much noise in the stock market, you can feel overwhelmed by information overload, leaving you paralyzed to take any sort of action. After listening to this audiobook, I feel confident implementing these strategies laid out in the book, and feel excited to take action for my financial freedom. The narration is also very crisp and easy to listen too.

Delivered exactly what it promises!

I have heard horror stories about options trading since I got into stock markets years ago. I never considered options as a way to increase my income but after listening to this book, I think I have enough grasp of the basics of covered calls and how options work while stay under the PDT guidelines. This audiobook has a lot of information and if you are serious about option trading I advice you to have a pen and paper in hands to write some notes or better get the physical copy of the book and highlight main point as you go.

Covered call dome the right way

This book is literally the perfect asset for anyone who owns stocks/shares and is looking to gain an insightful and an understanding on how to use Covered Call to boost income in a safe and practical way. I gained a clear understanding of the difference between covered calls and uncover calls. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook and truly feel equipped to go out and apply my new-found knowledge to get some decent but realistic returns. This audiobook felt clear and concise and really honed down on some important points using simple language which I really liked….



It has all the basics and some real-stock examples of the strategy. There is also a section on combining dividend stocks with selling covered calls, and ideas on how to select stocks. The exact strategies which you should use for your regular and tax-deferred accounts and how to know and select the right price. I loved how the author went over these key rules to adjusting your covered calls.



Over all this was a job well done and i will most definitely be going over the other books written by this publication.
