How To YieldBoost CIR To 10.1% Using Options

  • Tickers in this article:
  • CIR

Shareholders of Circor International Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 0.3% annualized dividend yield can sell the August covered call at the $55 strike and collect the premium based on the $2.70 bid, which annualizes to an additional 9.8% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 10.1% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $55 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but CIR shares would have to advance 11.9% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 17.4% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
