YieldBoost NNI To 14.9% Using Options

Shareholders of Nelnet looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 0.9% annualized dividend yield can sell the June covered call at the $45 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.55 bid, which annualizes to an additional 14% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 14.9% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $45 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but NNI shares would have to advance 3.6% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 7.2% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
