Stock and Option Hedging - Long Stock Writing Options - Series 7 Tutorial

Buying Stock and Writing (selling) call options as a hedge is a long practiced options strategy for decades. It is also a position that is tested on the Series 7 exam and what Brokers-Traders need to know.

A stock hedge with writing call options is an income strategy - also called covered call writing.

Selling or shorting call options on their own is a dangerous undertaking in the stock trading markets. Shorting option contracts that are NOT covered requires that person to deliver (sell) shares of stock to the call holder at a specific price. If the writer does not own the stock, there is an unlimited loss potential - since the stock can rise to an infinite amount.

Owning the stock "covers" the option. If the option is exercised, the stock is used to fulfill the obligation on the contract.

Strategy Example

Long 100 Shares @$80
Short 1 Feb 85 Call for $300

The Maximum gain, loss and break-even are all tied to the stock performance and the premium received on the option.

The break even is 77. The stock is owned at 80, but the investor received a $300 premium which lowers the overall cost to $7700

The Maximum loss is that total outlay of money. $7700. The $8000 of stock could decline to zero, but the $300 would be retained.

The Maximum gain is the difference between the purchase price and the strike (sell) price on the contract.  That difference is $300 + $300 for the premium received for a total maximum gain of $600.

Types of Brokers and Their Roles

Brokers fulfill many roles, they serve as facilitators, negotiators and intermediaries. They are however essentially mediators between two parties who come together in the process of buying and selling. The broker takes the position of being in the middle to negotiate the best deal for his clients. Brokers also help their clients with making financial decisions, and help them choose the best investments. Brokers are paid on commission basis, and a get paid a percentage of the transaction of the sale once it is complete.

You will find brokers across many sectors of the financial and commodities industries. You will find insurance brokers, mortgage brokers, stock brokers, real estate and real-estate brokers, just to name a few. And in each sector they take the roll as intermediary between buyer and seller.  

Insurance brokers: Insurance brokers act as the intermediary between the insurer and the insured. An insurance broker helps his/her client to choose the best insurance policy for their needs and also helps process all the documentation. An insurance broker is different from an insurance agent in that the agent represents an insurance company and only sells insurance products from that particular company.  An insurance broker on the other hand is the representative of the insured only, and usually works with several insurance companies to look for the best deal for their client.

Real estate broker:  When it comes to real-estate, a broker acts as an intermediary in the buying selling or leasing of the property. When their client is a buyer they can help the client to buy a property at the top price And when their client is a seller they can help them sell at the highest price too. They also advice and guide both parties through the buying or selling process. 
Stock brokers: Stock brokers buy and sell stock and other securities in a corporation on behalf of either an individual person or a company. It is their job to connect buyers and sellers.  They have the duty and obligation to behave fairly, and act in the clients' best interest of both parties. Brokers also act as advisories for investors, helping them with investment decisions and financial management.  
High-end brokers and cheaper brokers: When it comes to making investment decisions, brokers can either advice you on your different investment options as well as do all the research for you having all your personal financial details in hand, or they can advice you and have you do your own research.

PASS YOUR SERIES 7 EXAM GUARANTEED

High-end brokers: When it comes to doing the research and the planning of your finances, the high-end broker will do it for you. They usually have a team of researchers working for them, as they study the market and how it is fairing. Brokers study the market and have to predict when it will be best to buy and sell, depending on the indicators.

Online brokers: Online brokers can be found by going to brokerage web sites. On the websites they have a list of investment information for you to access, such as investment databases, graphs and investment tips. They basically offer you the information and you have to take it from there.

Discount brokers: The same applies for the discount broker, although once you have made your decision he will help you with the paperwork.

Mortgage Brokers - Independent Series 7 Rep

Hauppauge, NY — American Investment Training (AIT), a leading securities training company announces a new program that will allow mortgage brokers, processors and real estate agents to become independent investment brokers as an addition to their current business. This program is best for mortgage companies that have clients to offer securities or give investment advice to their clients for compensation.

CPA’s have had successful arrangements with broker dealers for several years. The accounting field has thousands of CPA’s that are Series 7 licensed currently working with AIT and other investment firms.

“Being able to offer investment services can be a big plus to the earning potential of the individual and the mortgage company, without the cold calling”, says Nick Hunter, CEO of American Investment Training.

AIT is looking to add over 100 mortgage brokers and groups nationwide over the next year to become licensed securities brokers as an addition to their existing business. These individuals would get sponsored for their Series 7, Series 65 and any other relevant licenses needed through AIT’s FINRA firm. “With competition increasing and the environment changing in the mortgage field, the opportunity to platform off of their existing customers into investments has given many loan and real estate brokers a great avenue to earn more money”, says John Olsen - Vice President of AIT.

Mortgage brokers and companies looking to explore this opportunity would speak with AIT regarding their client and business. If the loan broker wants to move forward, they would begin a process of obtaining their securities license – most likely the Series 7 to start. This is a 250 question multiple choice exam. When passed, the person would be a licensed “Registered Representative”. A registered representative can trade securities for commissions.

A Series 65 licensed person is a Registered Investment Advisor. An RIA can manage money and charge fees for the assets managed, instead of trading for commission. “A good thing about the Series 65 is a person can refer business to a broker dealer and get residual commissions from that broker dealer, if they choose not to do the investment business themselves. It allows for separation, which some real estate and mortgage companies may want”, says Hunter.

American Investment Training (AIT) www.aitraining.com is a leading provider of Finra training courses for investment licensing, insurance courses, CPA, CFP and more. They set up independent brokerage offices through their firm.

Financial Advisors - Sponsorship for FINRA Exams

Start up a FINRA NASD firm office or add to investments to an existing business

Setting up an independent branch of an existing firm allows you to maintain your core CPA, law, real estate, mortgage, insurance or investment related business. You will simply have an option to market securities to your existing clients and clear the trades through our firm. You will receive monthly commissions on everything you earn.

If you are a financial professional or existing stockbroker, investment or insurance representative with clients, our firm is interested in helping you set up your own stockbroker office through us.

This independent opportunity with our firm is best for people including:

Licensed and Producing Brokers
CPA's
Attorneys
Mortgage brokers
Real Estate agents
Insurance brokers
Pension and retirement planning consultants
Other financial sales people
If you do not want to work for a broker dealer directly, but you do want to get licensed as an investment adviser, you should take the Series 65. The 65 does not require a sponsor and you can give advice to your clients on a fee based agreement, instead of commissions. Registered Investment Advisors also can receive fees on referrals given to licensed brokers.

If you are a licensed Series 7 producer and want or need a change - We can set you up with the right independent stock broker dealer for you. We work with many firms and will only recommend the right firm for you. Our Brokerage Firms are registered in all 50 states.

If you are a licensed Insurance producer - Our main firm is a fortune 500 company with the most comprehensive array of insurance and variable products in the business. Fully licensed people are considered first. Please note as much about your business production as possible.

Become an Independent Broker

CPA and Accountant Sponsorship for Series Licenses

An accounting professional or CPA has a unique business where they are a trusted source of financial information. Becoming a licened (Series 7, Series 66 or other) financial advisor or broker allows many of them to earn commissions or referrals. To become licensed, the CPA must be hired and sponsored by a registered brokerage firm (FINRA NASD).

American Investment Training has set up hundreds of successful accountants and tax professionals as independent brokers and Series 7 sponsorship. This gives the CPA tremendous upside earning potential.

AIT's primary firms are specialists in 401k planning, annuities, mutual funds, life insurance and other retirement products. Our accountants have their own office, but are able to clear through a large full service brokerage firm and earn commissions ongoing. These firms will sponsor the right type of CPA professionals who have a successful business plan, clients and a desire to build a broker or advisory type business.

The independent broker opportunities for CPA's and other tax accountants are availabel in most states including New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and more.

Institutional Bond Trading - How To Sell Government Bonds as a Broker

Many brokers who enter the securities business are not in the stock market. They are in the bond market. Bond Brokers sell Government Securities and large (Jumbo CD's) to Institutions and help mange their portfolios. These brokers sell to Banks, Credit Unions, Trust Departments and other Institutions.

The pay off can be very rewarding and ongoing. Learning how to get in with these large customers is the key. The product is not difficult. But the Ebook below through American Investment Training will cover the types of securities these institutions buy. There are many types of bonds that these large clients do not buy.

One huge benefit to being a Bond Broker is the fixed maturity of Bonds. They have an end date. A maturity date - unlike stocks and other equities, so the re-investment aspect of rollover money allows a Bond Broker to make repeated money on the same amount each time bonds mature.


SAMPLE FROM THE "HOW TO SELL BONDS TO INSTITUTIONS" E-BOOK regarding CD's:

"Banks and other institutions buy CD’s offered by other banks. If you have banks that buy CD’s, and you have a bank that needs money, you can earn from that. Lets say your investing bank is looking for a 3% 5 year CD (don’t be alarmed by the low rates, as of this printing, interest rates are at all time lows), The bank that is looking for money is offering a rate of 3.25%. You can approach the deposit bank with providing them a $100,000 deposit, not to exceed their total cost of 3.25%. You ask them if they pay for deposits, if they do, you tell the bank to issue the CD to your bank at 3%, and then you bill the deposit bank the .25 point spread between their cost and the CD rate you are giving to your customer. A .25 point for a 3 year CD is $750. What if you had 10 banks interested in 3 year CD’s? That’s $7500. Your client banks would wire the money in.

Each deposit is fully insured, the bank sends them a receipt, and your done. You also could do this with banks that are not as loaned out, but are looking to make a spread between their deposit rates, and a higher fixed income investment that you have. Let’s say there is a 4% corporate bond for 3 years that is available, and the deposit bank is paying 3.25% for 3 year deposit CD’s. If you can provide the bank with a CD at a total cost of 3.25%, and then take that money and invest it in a corporate bond, you made a spread for the bank, and you made money on both ends. The deposit spread, and the mark up on the corporate bond trade. These kinds of trades are simple to present and execute. The one objection you will encounter from some is the bank does not accept “Brokered Deposits”. Brokered Deposits are large time deposits that are listed as “brokered”, meaning, it was arranged through a broker. Some banks only consider deposits as brokered if they pay a fee for the deposit."

Selling Stock Short with Stock Options (Long Calls) - Options with Stock Strategy

People who establish a short stock position are bearish on the position. They anticipate the shares to decline. Using options to compliment this position can be used as either protection or income. You can either Short Puts or Buy Call Options. Each will provide a different hedge, but both of those option choices are bullish positions and can act as appropriate hedges - whether the goal is income or protection. This example will use a short sale of stock and the buying of a call option to protect it.

Example:

Short 100 shares BHN @ $75

This investor is hoping for a decline in BHN stock. When you sell stock short, you will eventually close the position like a normal stock purchase and sale later - but shorting stock is done in the reverse order. There is also unlimited risk when selling shares short because money is lost when the stock rises and there is never a ceiling on how high a security can rise.

Protecting this short sale with a Long Call Option Contract

If the risk in the main position is an increase in the market, to protect it, a hedge or stop loss must be used. In this case, the trader will use buy a call option.

The hedge will look like this:

Short 100 Shares BHN @ $75
Buy 1 BHN DEC 80 Call for $200

There are benefits and downsides to buying this call option. Unlike a normal “stop loss” order that can be triggered and executed without your direction, a call option can only be exercised when the buyer chooses. “Exercising” meaning the buyer has the right to buy 100 shares of the shares at $80. The downside is the option is more expensive. In this case, the cost for the contract is $200 - which is an immediate loss. There is also an expiration date on the contract. The short stock is covered (hedged) out to December.

Maximum Gain

The maximum gain for a short stock position is the stock declining to ZERO. If there was no additional option cost, the maximum gain would be $7500. But because the contract cost the trader $200, that must be shaved off the gain potential. The Maximum gain here is $7300.

Maximum Loss

The maximum loss would normally be unlimited if the short stock was left unprotected. The call option guarantees a buy back price of the stock at $80, so the maximum loss is the difference between the short sale at $75 and the buy back at $80 PLUS the premium spent on the option. The maximum loss formula works out to $700 in this case.

The breakeven

The Break-even is the point where is no gain or loss. The stock was shorted at $75 and the profit is a decline in the market, but the $200 premium needs to be deducted. The Break even is $73

Open End Mutual Funds Tutorial

Investment companies - including open end mutual funds are covered on the Series 6 and Series 7 exams.

“What is a Mutual Fund?”

A Mutual Fund (also called “Open End” Funds) is a company that invests money for their
shareholders. They usually offer strong diversification and are managed professionally. They
are called “Open End” because they are always issuing new shares of their fund. There is no
secondary market. An Agent (acting as a broker) representing a Mutual Fund will sell shares
of a fund but the transaction is facilitated by the fund company itself. For instance, if you want
to buy a mutual fund offered by “Fidelity Mutual Funds”, you must purchase it through an
Agent who represents them directly. You can’t just call any broker and buy Funds the way you
buy stock. There are thousands of different funds. You can buy a fund that fits your
objectives.

Mutual funds that have blue chip stocks, penny stocks, bonds or a mix in their portfolio is still considered an open end fund and the price will not be set until all the securities have settled their value at the end of the day. There are also other price consideration issues such as:

Sales Charge - what the fund charges to buy or perhaps when sold. There are also no-load funds where a sales fee is not charged.

Redemption Fee - Some open end mutual funds will charge a fee to redeem the shares of the fund. Many times this fee is in place when the buying sales charge is low or there is no sales charge going in.

Some types of funds include:

INCOME FUND - Specializing in buying stock in established companies (IBM, Philip Morris
etc.) or Bonds that generate interest income. These funds will normally pay good dividends
because they are receiving income from the investments themselves.

GROWTH FUND - Invested in emerging or growth companies. The fund buys companies
that they feel have good potential in the future. These funds, although low paying with respect
to dividends, have the greater potential to increase in share value.

SECTOR FUND - Invests in a particular sector or industry such as: Energy, Technology or
Internet only. These funds are less predictable since their performance is solely based on the
performance of that particular sector of the market.

Series 7 Sponsorship - How To Get Sponsored For The Series 7

One of the challenges incoming stockbroker trainees face is the Series 7 and how to get the license. When you are hired by a brokerage firm, the brokerage firm you are joining will most likely sponsor you to take the Series 7 exam. But, what if you want to obtain the license BEFORE you get hired.

There are ways to get sponsored for the Series 7. American Investment Training published an EBook titled "How To Become a Successful Broker and Adviser" a few years ago and it has been updated several times. It covers ways you can take the exam while passively connected to a sponsoring brokerage firm - so you can take the exam. You would be responsible for the exam fees and filing fees, but you can have the Series 7 license in hand. That EBOOK can be ordered HERE: Broker Guide from American Investment Training

This can be huge in hiring opportunities for the broker. A Series 7 carries much more weight when applying for jobs. Many firms don't want to go through the waiting for a new broker to become licensed. It's just easier for them to have YOU licensed first.

The Ebook goes through all the licensing exams - not just the Series 7. Knowing how the process works and understanding the licenses and markets you can take advantage of is very important. You want to work in the securities that you feel has the best potential.

Some of the other features in guide include:

Learn all you need to know to succeed as a stockbroker
Build up your resume before you get a job
Know the financial firms to work with

Convertible Corporate Bonds - Convertible Debentures

Some of the math - formula questions on the Series 7 and that you will need to study a little on is convertible corporate bonds. These are bonds that can be converted into common stock of the issuing corporation at a set conversion price. The exam will have you do some calculations and present scenarios.

Debentures

Corporate debt that is backed by the full faith and credit of the issuing company are known as debentures. Corporate debentures are rated by companies for credit quality. You can buy investment grade or speculative bonds.

Secured corporate bonds are backed by an asset or collateral. When a bond is secured, it is backed by collateral. That collateral could be cash, securities, real estate or equipment.

Corporate bonds can be callable by the issuer. Call dates can be placed on the bond and this allows the company to redeem the bonds early beginning on set dates and at set redemption prices. This is normally not a good feature for investors, because an issue is normally called when interest rates are low - lower than your coupon rate. The main reason debentures or bonds in general are called, is because the issuer wants to refinance their debt at a lower rate. When this happens, the investor is faced with having his money (par) returned early, but the higher paying bond is no more. To make matters worse, interest rates are lower in the market, so finding a suitable replacement will be difficult, if not impossible. Callable bonds to pay a higher yield though, so for some the risk is worth it.

Convertible


Some bonds issued by corporations are convertible into common stock of the issuing company. This conversion feature acts as an incentive for the bondholder. The company is hoping the investor eventually converts into the common stock of the company. The investor finds convertible corporate issues attractive, because they have an option to buy stock in the company at a fixed conversion price.

Converting a bond is based on par value and the fixed conversion price that appears on the bond. The conversion price is not the price the stock is purchased at. So, it is unlike a "Stock Option". The time to convert is the investor's choice. An example:

A customer owns ABC convertible bond that is selling in the market at $1040 or $104, the common stock is selling at $54 and the conversion price is $50. The investor would like to convert, but will only do so when the stock value is trading above the bond value. "Parity" would occur when the bond and stock are equal. The first thing you must find out is the amount of shares the customer is entitled to. We get that by dividing the conversion price into the par value of the bond ($1000). $1000 divided by 50 equally 20.

The investor can convert out of the bond into 20 shares of stock - no more no less. The stock is currently trading at $54, so the the stock value is found by multiplying 20 (shares) by $54 (stock value), which equals $1080. $1080 is above the bond selling price of $1040, so converting at this time would meet the customer's objectives of converting only when the stock value was above bond value or "above parity".

401K plans - Understanding Defined Contribution Plans, 401 K Company Retirement Accounts

The Series 7 and other securities, adviser and principal exams will ask questions on 401k plans and retirement accounts.

401k Accounts

401 k accounts are a type of defined contribution account.

A corporate retirement plan where the employee contributes a defined amount based on earnings or other factors. It is a tax qualified retirement plan. Eventual investment and retirement value of the account may be transferred or rolled over into another corporate plan.

These are different from defined benefit set ups where the amount put in by and for the employee is packaged with years of service, salary and other factors to calculate a monthly benefit. Contribution retirement accounts are taken out, transferred or people can do a rollover.

The years of service and amount of contributions will effect the account balance and asset allocations are a factor in the performance of the investments and rate of return. This is also true in defined benefit corporate retirement plans.

Contribution plans like 401k's and group IRA accounts are much more popular than benefit arrangements nowadays. With much of the workforce employed with small business or non union type companies, the need for providing a fixed monthly benefit at retirement and calculating that benefit over time is less appealing to a company when a 401k or other employee controlled plan is easier for the company.

Many people feel it is because of the growing aspects of defined contribution plans that less people are saving enough money in their retirement accounts.

Retirement Planning Help or Questions

401 k Rollovers

401k plans have some specific rollover and transfer rules and procedures. A rollover is when money is taken out of a 401k or other qualified retirement plan and "rolled over" into another type of qualified plan. These other plans include IRA's. Each time a rollover is done out of a 401k plan, it must be completed within 60 days and the money may not be cashed or placed in another account during that time. Rollovers can only take place once a year. An account transfer does not have to follow the 401k rules and guidelines. An account transfer is when a 401k plan is moved from one brokerage firm to another. Loans may be also taken on 401k balances. Cash withdrawals are subject to the pre 59 1/2 years old IRS standard penalty of 10% on the amount withdrawn and the total amount is taxed as ordinary income for tax purposes.

Vesting

The vesting period in a 401k investment account is the time the employee must fulfill their years to ne 100% vested. This means all contributions made by the company under the plan are 100% available to the person should they leave their job. The vesting period under these accounts can vary. Usually this period runs 5 years.

Investments

The securities account or investments within the 401k are varied with each plan or company. Usually, the employee will have a wide array of mutual fund or other fund choices to dedicate investment money to. The investor can change the allocation and choices in the 401k as they see fit. Rates of return and retirement value will vary with the performance of the securities in the investment account.

For employees and employers in a company contribution plan, the vesting period is an important period of time. A retirement account, like a 401k that is provided by a company (employer) is largely done as an incentive or loyalty benefit.

Being vested or 100% vested is on the part of the employee. If the employee remains with the company for a set number of years - as stated when they signed onto the plan, then the contributions made by the employer are now 100% the employee's. This vesting period can be set up a number of ways but is usually 5 years.

When the employee makes a 401k contribution, that money in the account is always 100% for the employee and would be available to the person for any rollover or job switch - as long as it is permissible for tax reasons. The amounts matched by the employer in the retirement account may only be partially under the worker's benefit to rollover or move. This depends on the vesting schedule and how long the person has remained with the company.

This vested part of the account is no all or none. An employee can be 40% vested, 70% vested etc. They do not have to be 100% to gain some of the company contributions made into the retirement account.

The period is not a long time for most employees and it is only fair for a company to have a set period of stay before the money the business has contributed to you is 100% yours. Filling this period of time is a normal part of 401k retirement account planning.
