In lieu of lousy bonds yields, one of my buy-stock/sell-out-of-money-calls choices has been HCBK, I've owned it for about a year and a half. The last call options I sold on it expired in january. One day about mid-january, HCBK went down about 25% with all the other banks. It has not come back up since. The new call option prices are very bad...i.e, the stock is around $10 plus change a share, and the $12.50 call option for january 2012 is 35 cents. Present dividend is 5% plus. Last quarter earnings were about 25 cents.So I'm just wondering if anyone else has ever looked at this one, and if they think it was a case of throwing the baby out with the bath water and this is undervalued? Or if the shoes are going to start dropping this year? Thanx for reading.
