A covered call calculator allows an investor to enter in:

  • Stock price
  • Strike price
  • Call premium
  • Days until expiration
  • Margin interest rate 

You can then see the analysis of the parameters of the covered call write:

  • Cost of the shares.
  • Credit received from selling call options.
  • Total capital required for the option play.
  • Cost basis and break even level. 
  • Maximum potential gain. 
  • Return.
  • Annualized return. 

(Results will be different for a cash settled account versus a margin account and each will be shown).
