StockOptionsChannel.com

Stock Options Channel is a stock options research website, aimed at financial advisors and retail investors trying to maximize the opportunities in stock options and using puts and calls to gain yield on their investments. The site includes a number of ground-breaking features that allow investors to dig deeper into interesting stock options opportunities, including the site's proprietary YieldBoost ranking system. Each week we put out a free newsletter sharing the results of our YieldBoost rankings, and throughout each day we share even more detailed reports to subscribers to our premium service. On the CALLS side of the options chain, the YieldBoost formula looks for the highest premiums a call seller can receive (expressed in terms of the extra yield against the current share price - the boost - delivered by the option premium), with strikes that are out-of-the-money with low odds of the stock being called away. On the PUTS side of the options chain, the YieldBoost formula considers that the option seller makes a commitment to put up a certain amount of cash to buy the stock at a given strike, and looks for the highest premiums a put seller can receive (expressed in terms of the extra yield against the cash commitment - the boost - delivered by the option premium), with strikes that are out-of-the-money with low odds of the stock being put to the option seller.

YieldBoost IMKTA To 13.6% Using Options

Shareholders of Ingles Markets Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 1.8% annualized dividend yield can sell the February 2017 covered call at the $40 strike and collect the premium based on the $2.20 bid, which annualizes to an additional 11.8% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 13.6% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $40 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but IMKTA shares would have to climb 7.3% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 13.2% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
