YieldBoost Luminex Corp To 8.8% Using Options

Shareholders of Luminex Corp looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 1.2% annualized dividend yield can sell the January 2018 covered call at the $22.50 strike and collect the premium based on the 95 cents bid, which annualizes to an additional 7.7% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 8.8% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $22.50 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but LMNX shares would have to climb 9.2% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 13.8% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
