Today we’ll show you how to generate huge income from Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) – Jason Fieber’s most recent pick in our ongoing Undervalued Dividend Growth Stock of the Week series that looks ~45% undervalued.
Shares of SWKS yield 2.6% right now, but by selling a covered call option we can create even higher income instantly — generating an annualized yield of 36.5% to 84.0% in the process.
As we go to press, SWKS is selling for $95.65 per share and the October 28 $100 calls are going for about $3.35 per share.
Our income trade would involve buying 100 shares of SWKS and simultaneously selling one of those calls.
By selling a call option, we would be giving the buyer of the option the right, but not the obligation, to purchase our 100 shares at $100 per share (the “strike” price) anytime before October 28 (the contract “expiration” date).
In exchange for that opportunity, the buyer of the option would be paying us $3.35 per share (the “premium”).
There are two likely ways this trade would work out, and they both offer significantly higher income than what we’d collect if we relied on the stock’s dividends alone.
To be conservative, we don’t include any dividends in our calculations for either of the following scenarios. The annualized yields are generated from options premium and applicable capital gains alone. So any dividends collected are just “bonus” that will boost our overall annualized yields even further.
Let’s take a closer look at each scenario…
Scenario #1: SWKS stays under $100 by October 28
If SWKS stays under $100 by October 28, our option contract would expire and we’d get to keep our 100 shares.
In the process, we’d receive $335 in premium ($3.35 x 100 shares).
That income would be collected instantly, when the trade opens.
Excluding any commissions, if “Scenario 1” plays out, we’d receive a 3.5% return in the form of income for selling the covered call ($3.35 / $95.65). Since we’d be in the trade for 35 days, this scenario would work out to a 36.5% annualized yield.
Scenario #2: SWKS climbs over $100 by October 28
If SWKS climbs over $100 by October 28, our 100 shares would get sold (“called away”) at $100 per share.
In “Scenario 2” — like “Scenario 1” — we’d collect an instant $335 in premium ($3.35 x 100 shares) when the trade opens. We’d also generate $435 in capital gains when the trade closes because we’d be buying 100 shares at $95.65 and selling them at $100.00.
In this scenario, excluding any commissions, we’d be looking at a $770 profit.
From a percentage standpoint, this scenario would deliver an instant 3.5% in income for selling the covered call ($3.35 / $95.65) and a 4.5% return from capital gains ($4.35 / $95.65).
At the end of the day, we’d be looking at a 84.0% annualized yield from SWKS.
Here’s how we’d make the trade…
We’d place a “Buy-Write” options order with a Net Debit price of as close to $92.30 ($95.65 – $3.35) as we can get — the lower the better. Options contracts work in 100-share blocks, so we’d have to buy at least 100 shares of Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) for this trade. For every 100 shares we’d buy, we’d “Sell to Open” one options contract using a limit order. Accounting for the $335 in premium we’d collect, that would require a minimum investment of $9,230.
Hope this helps!

Netflix is NOT the future of entertainment. It's only a small fraction. And one billionaire CEO is taking charge of what Netflix DOESN'T do and leading the way for the next generation of entertainment. His forward-thinking company, which many people haven't even heard of yet, doesn't only want to compete with Netflix... It wants to rule the world...
P.S.. We’d only make this trade if: 1) we wanted to own the underlying stock anyways 2) we believed it was trading at a reasonable price 3) we were comfortable owning it for the long-haul in case the price drops significantly below our cost basis by expiration and 4) we were comfortable letting it go if shares get called away. To be mindful of position sizing, except in rare cases, the value of this trade wouldn’t exceed 5% of our total portfolio value. In addition, to minimize taxes and tax paperwork, we would most likely make this trade in a retirement account, such as an IRA or 401(k).
