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.
