YieldBoost GEF From 4.4% To 15.5% Using Options

YieldBoost GEF From 4.4% To 15.5% Using Options

Shareholders of Greif Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 4.4% annualized dividend yield can sell the October covered call at the $40 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.50 bid, which annualizes to an additional 11.1% 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 $40 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but GEF shares would have to climb 4.8% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 8.7% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
