How To YieldBoost Argan To 14% Using Options

Shareholders of Argan Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.3% annualized dividend yield can sell the July covered call at the $47.50 strike and collect the premium based on the $2.30 bid, which annualizes to an additional 11.7% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 14% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $47.50 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but AGX shares would have to advance 11.4% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 16.8% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.

Argan Named Top Dividend Stock With Insider Buying and 1.63% Yield (AGX)

In this series, we look through the most recent Dividend Channel ''DividendRank'' report, and then we cherry pick only those companies that have experienced insider buying within the past six months.
