How To YieldBoost BGFV From 2.7% To 15.5% Using Options

How To YieldBoost BGFV From 2.7% To 15.5% Using Options

Shareholders of Big 5 Sporting Goods Corp looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.7% annualized dividend yield can sell the July 2017 covered call at the $20 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.40 bid, which annualizes to an additional 12.7% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 15.5% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $20 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but BGFV shares would have to advance 9.5% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 17.1% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
