Some investors who see the discussion on the initial Married Put structure say: 'This is nothing more than a Long Call, but uses more capital. The Long Call is the Same, but Better!'
First, something can not be the same, but better. Second, these are the right questions to ask and third, we are up to the challenge to answer.
In this presentation we address the comments of why a long call is better (or not) than the Married Put approach. We also look at a side by side, 'parity' portfolio of the RadioActive Married Puts vs. just Buying the Call option...
And how these would have performed in the real market, with real dollars and a real trading plan.
