YieldBoost PFBC To 8.9% Using Options

Shareholders of Preferred Bank looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 1.4% annualized dividend yield can sell the June 2018 covered call at the $65 strike and collect the premium based on the $2.60 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 8.9% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $65 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but PFBC shares would have to advance 9.1% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 13.5% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
