February 2014 Options Now Available For AMETEK (AME)

Investors in AMETEK, Inc. (NYSE: AME ) saw new options begin trading today, for the February 2014 expiration. At Stock Options Channel , our YieldBoost formula has looked up and down the AME options chain for the new February 2014 contracts and identified the following put contract of particular interest.

The put contract at the $50.00 strike price has a current bid of 30 cents. If an investor was to sell-to-open that put contract, they are committing to purchase the stock at $50.00, but will also collect the premium, putting the cost basis of the shares at $49.70 (before broker commissions). To an investor already interested in purchasing shares of AME, that could represent an attractive alternative to paying $52.03/share today.

Because the $50.00 strike represents an approximate 4% discount to the current trading price of the stock (in other words it is out-of-the-money by that percentage), there is also the possibility that the put contract would expire worthless. The current analytical data (including greeks and implied greeks) suggest the current odds of that happening are 72%. Stock Options Channel will track those odds over time to see how they change, publishing a chart of those numbers on our website under the contract detail page for this contract. Should the contract expire worthless, the premium would represent a 0.60% return on the cash commitment, or 3.59% annualized — at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost.

Below is a chart showing the trailing twelve month trading history for AMETEK, Inc., and highlighting in green where the $50.00 strike is located relative to that history:

The implied volatility in the put contract example above is 18%. Meanwhile, we calculate the actual trailing twelve month volatility (considering the last 251 trading day closing values as well as today’s price of $52.03) to be 17%.
