As the first full trading week of 2014 begins, Jim Cramer answers viewers' Twitter questions from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.
Shareholders of Mine Safety Appliances Co looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.6% annualized dividend yield can sell the June 2014 covered call at the $50 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.75 bid, which annualizes to an additional 7.1% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 9.7% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $50 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but MSA shares would have to advance 5.9% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 9.6% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
Investors considering a purchase of Mine Safety Appliances Co stock, but tentative about paying the going market price of $51.17/share, might benefit from considering selling puts among the alternative strategies at their disposal. One interesting put contract in particular, is the March 2014 put at the $45 strike, which has a bid at the time of this writing of $1.40.
