How To YieldBoost Greif From 3.3% To 9.5% Using Options

How To YieldBoost Greif From 3.3% To 9.5% Using Options

Shareholders of Greif looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 3.3% annualized dividend yield can sell the July 2014 covered call at the $55 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.85 bid, which annualizes to an additional 6.2% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 9.5% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $55 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but GEF shares would have to advance 7.9% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 11.5% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
