The stock market is within striking distance of all-time highs. Yet at the same time, yields on bonds and dividend stocks continue to creep lower, making it difficult for investors to generate above-average returns.

In today's video, Matt and Paul beef up the income-generating part of their real-money portfolio by using an options strategy on a favorite stock that happens to be trading near its 52-week low.
