Covered Calls on Starbucks (SBUX)

Starbucks185 3 Covered Calls for a Cool $1,000 in IncomeStarbucks (SBUX) is a good way to round out these covered calls. I recently moved SBUX stock into my “forever hold” category, as it is so totally wrapped up in the American experience of daily life that it will likely be part of both our culture and those of other countries forever.

The $71.15 price of SBUX is best leveraged using the June $72.50 call, which trades at $1.07. That’s a 1.5% return, or 14% annualized, so it’s a nice conservative bet on a great stock I’m happy to own regardless.

Selling two of these brings in $214 and brings our total covered call collection to $1,093.
