Category Archives: Stock Options

Stock options are financial contracts executed between two parties in an underlying stock or ETF. There are two main types of option contracts: Call options and Put options. In either case, the option buyer pays a premium to the option seller for the right, but not the obligation, to buy/sell 100 shares of the underlying security at a predetermined price in the future. Option sellers, therefore, give up their right and have an obligation to deliver the shares if and when the contract is exercised or reaches expiration. Put options give the buyer the right to sell the stock or ETF whereas calls options give the buyer the right to buy the stock or ETF.
