A buy-write is a covered call in which the underlying shares of stock are purchased simultaneously with writing the call contract(s).[1] [2]

It is an options trading strategy designed to generate income from option premiums. Because the options position is covered by the underlying position, the downside risk of writing the option is minimized.[3]
