Looking at the universe of stocks we cover at Dividend Channel, on 5/9/17, Scorpio Tankers Inc will trade ex-dividend, for its quarterly dividend of $0.01, payable on 6/14/17. As a percentage of STNG's recent stock price of $4.28, this dividend works out to approximately 0.23%.
Shareholders of Scorpio Tankers Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 1% annualized dividend yield can sell the October covered call at the $5 strike and collect the premium based on the 25 cents bid, which annualizes to an additional 12.8% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 13.8% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $5 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but STNG shares would have to climb 25.9% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 32.2% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
