Testimonials on BXM

From Pennsylvania Portfolio Manager

For over 30 years, Connors has utilized covered call option writing in portfolios to enhance the cash flow and lower the volatility typically associated with equity investing. The returns of the BXM index exemplify the advantages of option writing and provide tangible evidence for investors of the positive risk-adjusted returns that the strategy can generate."

-- Peter J. Connors, President, Connors Investor Services, Inc., Wyomissing, PA




The CBOE S&P 500 BuyWrite Index (BXMSM) is designed to represent a proposed hypothetical buy-write strategy. Like many passive indexes, the BXM Index does not take into account significant factors such as transaction costs and taxes and, because of factors such as these, many or most investors should be expected to underperform passive indexes. Investors attempting to replicate the BXM Index should discuss with their brokers possible timing and liquidity issues. Transaction costs and taxes for a buy-write strategy such as the BXM could be significantly higher than transaction costs for a passive strategy of buying-and-holding stocks.
