How To YieldBoost FreightCar America To 21.3% Using Options

Shareholders of FreightCar America Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.1% annualized dividend yield can sell the December covered call at the $17.50 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.25 bid, which annualizes to an additional 19.2% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 21.3% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $17.50 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but RAIL shares would have to advance 4.4% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 11.9% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
