Imagine that you are holding 5,000 shares of stock, currently selling at $40 per share. You are ready to sell the shares but would prefer to put off the sale until next year for tax reasons. If you continue to hold the shares until January, however, you face the risk that the stock will drop in value before year end. You decide to use a collar to limit downside risk without laying out a good deal of additional funds. January call options with a strike of $35 are selling at $2, and January puts with a strike price of $45 are selling at $3.
