How To YieldBoost Packaging Corp of America From 2.2% To 6.4% Using Options

Shareholders of Packaging Corp of America looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.2% annualized dividend yield can sell the January 2016 covered call at the $77.50 strike and collect the premium based on the $4.60 bid, which annualizes to an additional 4.1% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 6.4% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $77.50 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but PKG 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 15.5% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
