Introduction

The CBOE Russell 2000 BuyWrite Index (BXR) is a benchmark index that measures the performance of a theoretical portfolio that sells Russell 2000 Index (RUT) call options, against a portfolio of the stocks included in the Russell 2000 Index.

A "buy-write," also called a covered call, generally is considered to be an investment strategy in which an investor buys a stock or a basket of stocks, and also sells call options that correspond to the stock or basket of stocks. This strategy can be used to enhance portfolio returns and reduce volatility. Historical daily values for the BXR are available dating back to December 29, 2000.

The methodologies of the CBOE BuyWrite Indexes and the CBOE Volatility Indexes are owned by CBOE and may be covered by one or more patents or pending patent applications. CBOE's BuyWrite Indexes are designed to represent a proposed hypothetical buy-write strategy. Like many passive indexes, the BuyWrite Indexes do 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 under perform passive indexes. Investors attempting to replicate the BuyWrite Indexes should discuss with their brokers possible timing and liquidity issues. Transaction costs and taxes for buy-write strategies could be significantly higher than transaction costs for a passive strategy of buying-and-holding stocks. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
