Walt Disney

covered-calls-disneyWalt Disney (DIS) is a bit dicier because the stock has done very well this year and jumps up from time to time. Still, it fits the criteria.

With DIS stock at $69, you can sell the Jan 70 call for $1.27. In this case, you’re getting more than 3% on the premium plus Disney’s 0.275% dividend at year’s end. There’s a bit more risk of the stock getting called away here, but it’s worth it, in my opinion.
