Investors in Cal Dive International Inc (DVR) saw new options become available this week, for the September 21st expiration. At Stock Options Channel, our YieldBoost formula has looked up and down the DVR options chain for the new September 21st contracts and identified the following call contract of particular interest.The call contract at the $2.50 strike price has a current bid of 5 cents. If an investor was to purchase shares of DVR stock at the current price level of $2.04/share, and then sell-to-open that call contract as a "covered call," they are committing to sell the stock at $2.50. Considering the call seller will also collect the premium, that would drive a total return (excluding dividends, if any) of 25.00% if the stock gets called away at the September 21st expiration (before broker commissions). Of course, a lot of upside could potentially be left on the table if DVR shares really soar, which is why looking at the trailing twelve month trading history for Cal Dive International Inc, as well as studying the business fundamentals becomes important. Below is a chart showing DVR's trailing twelve month trading history, with the $2.50 strike highlighted in red:
