How To YieldBoost CCMP To 6.9% Using Options

Shareholders of Cabot Microelectronics Corp looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 0.8% annualized dividend yield can sell the July 2018 covered call at the $110 strike and collect the premium based on the $3.80 bid, which annualizes to an additional 6.1% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 6.9% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $110 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but CCMP shares would have to advance 12.4% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 16.3% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
