The New #17 Most Shorted S&P 500 Component: Ball
Metals Channel Staff - Wednesday, May 25, 3:06 PM

The most recent short interest data has been released for the 05/13/2016 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.

YieldBoost Vulcan Materials To 10% Using Options
Metals Channel Staff - Wednesday, May 25, 11:41 AM

Shareholders of Vulcan Materials Co (VMC) looking to boost their income beyond the stock's 0.7% annualized dividend yield can sell the January 2017 covered call at the $125 strike and collect the premium based on the $7.40 bid, which annualizes to an additional 9.4% rate of return against the current stock price (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost), for a total of 10% annualized rate in the scenario where the stock is not called away. Any upside above $125 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but VMC shares would have to advance 4.1% from current levels for that to happen, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 10.3% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
