Question ID: 728444
How does entering into an option transaction on a stock I already hold
in my portfolio affect my ability to get long term capital gains on
that stock?  For instance, if after holding the stock for 7 months, I
sell a call on that same stock that expires in 6 months and hold until
settlement, how does the stock and option gains/losses get treated in
respect to long term gains?  Does the distance away from at the money
matter?  What about if I collar the stock by selling a call and buying
a put?
