YieldBoost HCI Group To 16.7% Using Options

YieldBoost HCI Group To 16.7% Using Options

Shareholders of HCI Group Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 3.2% annualized dividend yield can sell the April 2017 covered call at the $40 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.75 bid, which annualizes to an additional 13.5% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 16.7% 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 HCI shares would have to climb 7.1% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 11.8% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
