Overwriting

Strategy of selling 

Call

 or 

Put

 options in quantity, hoping that they will not be exercised. 

Option

 writers do this when they suspect the underlying is incorrectly valued, and so the buyer will let the options expire and the 

Writer

 will simply earn 

Option

 premiums, but this is a risky strategy.
