YieldBoost HCI Group To 18.8% Using Options

Shareholders of HCI Group Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 3.8% annualized dividend yield can sell the January 2018 covered call at the $40 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.95 bid, which annualizes to an additional 15% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 18.8% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $40 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but HCI shares would have to climb 7.2% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 12.5% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.

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.
