Covered call option strategy Where an investor who owns a stock sells a call option (the right to buy that stock at a fixed price) to another investor. Selling covered calls takes advantage of price volatility and generates some income for the investor. The risk is that the stock is trading above the strike price of the call option and the call seller loses that upside, giving up some of the profit on their original position.

Bensignor isn’t making a fundamental call or predicting where artificial intelligence could take Nvidia’s sales in the future. Selling a little bit when stocks are rising too quickly is generally a good idea. The amount to sell really depends on the type of investor. Dealers will sell more. Long term investors will sell less.
