YieldBoost Universal Insurance Holdings From 2.1% To 9.1% Using Options

YieldBoost Universal Insurance Holdings From 2.1% To 9.1% Using Options

Shareholders of Universal Insurance Holdings Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 2.1% annualized dividend yield can sell the August 2018 covered call at the $30 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.20 bid, which annualizes to an additional 7% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 9.1% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $30 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but UVE shares would have to climb 13.3% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 17.8% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
