How To YieldBoost MSA To 9.7% Using Options

How To YieldBoost MSA To 9.7% Using Options

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.
