Exploring a Lucrative Strategy

Investors, eyeing Aspen Aerogels Inc (Symbol: ASPN) shares priced at $16.82/share, may find the $10 strike put options strategy intriguing. The January 2026 put at $10 strike, with a bid of $2.05, offers a 20.5% return on a $10 commitment, translating to an annualized rate of return of 11.4% – what Stock Options Channel terms YieldBoost.

Understanding the Dynamics

Opting for a put does not entail the same perks as owning ASPN shares for potential upside. The put seller only takes possession of shares if the contract is exercised, deriving benefit only if the $10 strike surpasses the market price. Should ASPN shares plummet by 40.5% and the contract triggers, costs would be $7.95 per share post deductions (subtracting the premium). For the put seller, gains stem solely from the premium and the 11.4% annualized rate.

Analyzing the Historical Context

Incorporating the trailing twelve-month trading background of Aspen Aerogels Inc is vital in conjunction with fundamental assessments. The trailing twelve months’ volatility for Aspen Aerogels Inc, at 77%, is instrumental in gauging if vending the January 2026 $10 put for an 11.4% annualized return justifies the risks.
