Investors in Science Applications International Corp saw new options begin trading this week, for the February 2016 expiration. One of the key inputs that goes into the price an option buyer is willing to pay, is the time value, so with 170 days until expiration the newly trading contracts represent a possible opportunity for sellers of puts or calls to achieve a higher premium than would be available for the contracts with a closer expiration.

Shareholders of Science Applications International Corp looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.2% annualized dividend yield can sell the May 2015 covered call at the $55 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.90 bid, which annualizes to an additional 8.3% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 10.6% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $55 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but SAIC shares would have to climb 8.5% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 12.2% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
