Trade-Ideas LLC identified Greif (GEF) as a strong and under the radar candidate
These 3 dividend stocks are rated a Buy by TheStreet
Shareholders of Greif Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 4.7% annualized dividend yield can sell the October covered call at the $40 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.35 bid, which annualizes to an additional 12% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 16.6% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $40 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but GEF shares would have to advance 10.9% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 14.7% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
It's the second day of trading in the U.S. after Great Britain's historic 'Brexit' vote, and analysts have differing opinions about the best places to invest.
