Strategy To YieldBoost Quanex Building Products Corp To 9.4% Using Options

Shareholders of Quanex Building Products Corp looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 0.8% annualized dividend yield can sell the December covered call at the $22.50 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.05 bid, which annualizes to an additional 8.6% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 9.4% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $22.50 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but NX shares would have to advance 10.8% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 16% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
