Strategy To YieldBoost Marlin Business Services Corp To 10.1% Using Options

Shareholders of Marlin Business Services Corp looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.5% annualized dividend yield can sell the June 2018 covered call at the $25 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.00 bid, which annualizes to an additional 7.6% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 10.1% 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 MRLN shares would have to climb 9.7% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 14% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
