YieldBoost VMC To 12.8% Using Options
Metals Channel Staff - Tuesday, April 22, 11:40 AM

Shareholders of Vulcan Materials Co (VMC) looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 0.3% annualized dividend yield can sell the November covered call at the $67.50 strike and collect the premium based on the $4.80 bid, which annualizes to an additional 12.5% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 12.8% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $67.50 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but VMC shares would have to climb 2.8% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 10.1% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.

Best Buy Inc Becomes #107 Most Shorted S&P 500 Component, Replacing Vulcan Materials Co
Metals Channel Staff - Thursday, April 10, 3:44 PM

The most recent short interest data has been released by the NASDAQ for the 03/31/2014 settlement date, and we here at Dividend Channel like to sift through this fresh data and order the underlying components of the S&P 500 by "days to cover." There are a number of ways to look at short data, for example the total number of shares short; but one metric that we find particularly useful is the "days to cover" metric because it considers both the total shares short and the average daily volume of shares typically traded. The number of shares short is then compared to the average daily volume, in order to calculate the total number of trading days it would take to close out all of the open short positions if every share traded represented a short position being closed.
