Leveraging Options to Boost Returns

eXp World Holdings Inc (Symbol: EXPI) investors eyeing opportunities to enhance their earnings beyond the stock’s 2.1% annualized dividend yield can consider selling the January 2025 covered call at the $12.50 strike. By capitalizing on the $1.45 bid premium, investors can secure an additional 18.2% rate of return against the current stock price, a strategy we refer to as the YieldBoost. This translates into a robust 20.3% annualized rate, assuming the stock is not called away.

If the stock rises above $12.50 and is called away, investors risk missing out on further gains. However, for this scenario to materialize, EXPI shares would need to surge by 31.4% from present levels. In the event of a stock call, shareholders would still have pocketed a significant 46.7% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends garnered prior to the call.

Evaluating Dividend Stability

Dividend amounts can be unpredictable, ebbing and flowing in tandem with a company’s profitability. For eXp World Holdings Inc, assessing the dividend history chart for EXPI can offer insights into the likelihood of the recent dividend persisting, which, in turn, can help gauge the sustainability of the 2.1% annualized dividend yield.


Analyzing Options with Historical Data

Examining EXPI’s trailing twelve-month trading history provides a valuable perspective, particularly with the $12.50 strike highlighted in red for reference. Combining this data with the stock’s historical volatility enables investors to make informed decisions based on both technical and fundamental analysis, weighing the potential rewards against the risks of capping gains beyond $12.50.


We calculate the trailing twelve-month volatility for eXp World Holdings Inc at 61%, considering the last 250 trading day closing values alongside the current price of $9.53.
