How To YieldBoost American Railcar Industries From 3.7% To 19% Using Options

How To YieldBoost American Railcar Industries From 3.7% To 19% Using Options

Shareholders of American Railcar Industries Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 3.7% annualized dividend yield can sell the September covered call at the $45 strike and collect the premium based on the $2.55 bid, which annualizes to an additional 15.3% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 19% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $45 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but ARII shares would have to climb 4.9% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 10.8% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
