How To YieldBoost RUTH From 1.8% To 11.9% Using Options

How To YieldBoost RUTH From 1.8% To 11.9% Using Options

Shareholders of Ruth's Hospitality Group Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 1.8% annualized dividend yield can sell the February 2017 covered call at the $17.50 strike and collect the premium based on the 70 cents bid, which annualizes to an additional 10.1% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 11.9% 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 RUTH shares would have to climb 13.1% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 17.6% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
