Strategy To YieldBoost Evolution Petroleum Corp From 2.8% To 22.5% Using Options

Strategy To YieldBoost Evolution Petroleum Corp From 2.8% To 22.5% Using Options

Shareholders of Evolution Petroleum Corp looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.8% annualized dividend yield can sell the April 2017 covered call at the $10 strike and collect the premium based on the 70 cents bid, which annualizes to an additional 19.8% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 22.5% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $10 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but EPM shares would have to climb 5.9% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 13.3% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
