Collar

an option strategy generally used to protect unrealized profits on an existing long stock position. With the stock at a given price, generally an out-of-the-money put is purchased and an out-of-the-money call is written. The position performs on the downside like a protective put, and to the upside like a covered call. Profit and loss potential are both limited.
