Strategy To YieldBoost Principal Financial Group From 2.5% To 9.6% Using Options

Any upside above $55 would be lost if the stock rises there and is called away, but PFG shares would have to advance 2.1% from current levels for that to occur, meaning that in the scenario where the stock is called, the shareholder has earned a 4.9% return from this trading level, in addition to any dividends collected before the stock was called.
