RYLD Stock Dividend
The Global X Russell 2000 Covered Call ETF buys stocks in the Russell 2000 Index and provides investment results in the form of an RYLD dividend. The ETF (RYLD) follows a “covered call” or “buy-write” strategy. So, the Fund buys the stocks in the Russell 2000 Index, and at times by exposure to the Vanguard Russell 2000 ETF. Then, the fund “writes” or “sells” corresponding call options on the Russell 2000 Index. The Global X Russell 2000 Covered Call ETF (RYLD) seeks to provide positive investment results. Profits are paid out in the form of an RYLD Dividend. In general, the fund aims to correspond to the price and yield performance of the Cboe Russell 2000 BuyWrite Index.
The fund invests at least 80% of its total assets in index component securities. Or, similar investments with economic characteristics that are substantially the same as the component securities’ economic characteristics. The index tracks the performance of a hypothetical portfolio that holds a collection of Russell 2000 Index stocks. Then, the fund “writes” a series of one-month at-the-money covered call options on the Russell 2000 Index.
Covered Call Explained
A covered call is an options trading strategy that provides a limited return for a limited risk. A covered call involves selling a call option on a stock already owned. In that way, the investor is “covered” (i.e. protected) if the stock rises and the call option expires in the money. Therefore, a covered call is a hedging strategy. In this case, the fund sells a portion of the stock’s upside for a set period of time in exchange for the option premium. Selling a call option is normally a risky move because it exposes the seller to unlimited losses if the stock soars. However, by owning the underlying stock, the fund can limit potential losses. Simultaneously, the fund can earn options premiums to generate additional income.
RYLD Dividend Yield
RYLD has a dividend yield of 13.80% and paid $2.66 per share in the past year. The dividend is paid every month and the next ex-dividend date is Dec 29, 2022.
Dividend Yield Explained
The dividend yield is calculated by dividing a company’s annual dividends per share by its current share price. Investors can secure a relatively stable cash flow by investing in companies with stable and high dividend yields. However, dividend yields can temporarily remain high even when a company is in financial trouble. In that case, if the company does not rebound quickly, the dividend may be cut soon.
Dividend Yield Example: Consider a stock that trades at $100 and pays $4.00 in dividends per year ($1.00 per quarter). In this instance, the company’s dividend yield is 4%
