Health Care REIT Becomes #78 Most Shorted S&P 500 Component, Replacing Ball Corp
Metals Channel Staff - Thursday, February 26, 4:45 PM

The most recent short interest data has been released by the NASDAQ for the 02/13/2015 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.

How To YieldBoost Southern Copper Corp To 5.2% Using Options
Metals Channel Staff - Wednesday, February 18, 11:30 AM

Shareholders of Southern Copper Corp (SCCO) looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 1.3% annualized dividend yield can sell the January 2017 covered call at the $37 strike and collect the premium based on the $2.30 bid, which annualizes to an additional 3.9% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 5.2% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $37 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but SCCO shares would have to advance 19.7% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 27.1% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
