  • YieldBoost RAIL From 0.9% To 14.8% Using Options

    Shareholders of FreightCar America Inc looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 0.9% annualized dividend yield can sell the March 2015 covered call at the $30 strike and collect the premium based on the 90 cents bid, which annualizes to an additional 13.9% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 14.8% 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 RAIL shares would have to climb 16.8% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 20.3% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
