YieldBoost Universal Insurance Holdings From 2.3% To 18.7% Using Options

Shareholders of Universal Insurance Holdings Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.3% annualized dividend yield can sell the November covered call at the $25 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.65 bid, which annualizes to an additional 16.4% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 18.7% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $25 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but UVE shares would have to climb 2% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 8.8% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.

Universal Insurance Holdings Named Top Dividend Stock With Insider Buying and 3.10% Yield (UVE)

In this series, we look through the most recent Dividend Channel ''DividendRank'' report, and then we cherry pick only those companies that have experienced insider buying within the past six months. The officers and directors of a company tend to have a unique insider's view of the business, and presumably the only reason an insider would choose to take their hard-earned cash and use it to buy stock in the open market, is that they expect to make money — maybe they find the stock very undervalued, or maybe they see exciting progress within the company, or maybe both.
