What to Consider When Investing in Covered Call Strategies
Released on Tuesday, May 16, 2023•ETFs
Investors looking to maximize yield on their investments often look to covered call or enhanced yield ETFs in a low interest rate, high volatility, or low growth environment. In fact, these strategies have historically been shown to outperform the broad market during periods of weakness or consolidation and many boast attractive yields to lure investors. However, not all covered call ETFs are created equal and it is important to look under the hood when investing in these products. Maximizing yield above all other considerations may come at a significant cost that many investors may be unfamiliar with.
