Equity Options (returning soon)

An equity option is a contract between a buyer and a seller. Buying an option contract gives the owner the right, but not the obligation, to buy the underlying equity instrument at a specified price for a specified period of time. When selling an option, the seller is obligated to buy or sell the underlying security if the buyer exercises his or her option. If the option isn’t exercised or assigned by the expiration date, the contract expires.

Unlike stocks, an equity option does not represent ownership in the underlying company. Because it is a contract, it represents the potential for ownership, but it must be exercised in order for it to happen.
