How it works: A call option is a contract that allows you to buy a stock if it reaches a particular price. With a covered call, you’re selling that contract — also known as writing a call — to someone else. As the writer, you’re obligated to sell those shares if that buyer exercises the option. Since you already own the shares you’re offering to sell, the call is “covered.”
