Strategy To YieldBoost Matson From 2.7% To 14.8% Using Options

Strategy To YieldBoost Matson From 2.7% To 14.8% Using Options

Shareholders of Matson looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.7% annualized dividend yield can sell the June covered call at the $25 strike and collect the premium based on the 75 cents bid, which annualizes to an additional 12.1% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 14.8% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $25 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but MATX shares would have to climb 5.9% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 9.1% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
