Ask Alan #190: Using Options to Enhance Returns When Selling Our Shares

Alan answers a question posed by Barry, who asks:

I own 1200 shares of in my self-directed IRA at a cost of about $195. Today it is trading at $330. I want to sell 600 shares to be better diversified and tax is not a problem since it is in a sheltered account. Can I use options to get a better return when I sell the 600 shares?
Thanks a lot,
