How To YieldBoost W&T Offshore To 17.9% Using Options

How To YieldBoost W&T Offshore To 17.9% Using Options

Shareholders of W&T Offshore looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.6% annualized dividend yield can sell the April covered call at the $17.08 strike and collect the premium based on the 65 cents bid, which annualizes to an additional 15.2% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 17.9% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $17.08 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but WTI shares would have to climb 11.9% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 16.2% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.

WTI: Insiders vs. Shorts

WTI: Insiders vs. Shorts

The most recent short interest data was recently released by the NASDAQ for the 11/29/2013 settlement date, and W & T Offshore Inc is one of the most shorted stocks of the Russell 3000, based on 7.04 "days to cover" versus the median component at 4.97. There are a number of ways to look at short data, but one metric that we find particularly useful is the "days to cover" because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares typically traded.
