Investors are always on the lookout for tools and technologies that make their lives easier.
BorntoSell.com’s covered call screener replaces all those clunky spreadsheets investors used to use to track their positions. Good for producing income in retirement or just eking a few percentage points out of a portfolio, covered calls are a very common part of investing for many investors.
