YieldBoost Alon USA Energy To 16% Using Options

Shareholders of Alon USA Energy Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 4.5% annualized dividend yield can sell the September covered call at the $15 strike and collect the premium based on the 40 cents bid, which annualizes to an additional 11.4% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 16% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $15 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but ALJ shares would have to advance 11.5% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 14.5% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
