YieldBoost Insteel Industries From 0.4% To 13.1% Using Options

Shareholders of Insteel Industries, Inc. ( IIIN) looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 0.4% annualized dividend yield can sell the October covered call at the $30 strike and collect the premium based on the $1.30 bid, which annualizes to an additional 12.7% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 13.1% 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 IIIN shares would have to advance 9.9% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 14.7% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
