So there are two methods of creating an income with Gratuite Lavie. 1. Capturing dividends and 2. Sharing this business methodology with others and getting them involved with there own trading business.
Here is an example of dividend capturing using options as an insurance policy against a loss.
One buys 100 shares of XYZ stock for $100 per share, before the X-date and at the same time sell 1 call contract of XYZ for $1.50, with an expiration after the X-date of XYZ stock with that contract being ITM by a certain percentage. The dividend being paid out sometime after the X-date, usually within 30-45 days, it varies. This trade is opened lets say April 1st usually 7-28 days prior to the X-date, and X-date is April 14th, this trade will collect what is called theta decay or time value for each passing day. Since a call option was sold its controlled by the other side of that trade, but it cost them money each and every day that passes. The dividend being paid out by XYZ is .75c per share owned prior to X-date.
14 Days later its X-day or later, April 14th or later, you can now close this trade by selling the 100 shares of XYZ for lets say $99 and you take a loss on this trade of $1. Bummer! Not really. Your going to buy back that sold options contract in this example for .75c and you profit on that round trip option contract is .75c x 100 shares or $75.
