If you're interested in the buy the company/sell the call strategy, which someone mentioned to you earlier in the string, here is a suggestion: Federated Investors (FII) sells for around 23 and a half, and pays 96 cents dividend, for about a 4% plus yield. Do your research and decide if you think its stable enough for you. You can sell a january 2012 call option with a strike of 25 for another 95 cents or so, after commissions, and a total yield north of 8%. One nice part is that if the stock goes up over 25/share, and the buyer of your call option exercises early to steal the dividend(s), you still might make 5.5% return with the capital gain, depending on commish and taxes. If you ever see ODC drop back to a 5.5% yield, I'd reccommend latching on to it. Last time I looked, there are no options available for this equity. But it makes great talk at a social gatherin...while others are talking about gold, t-bonds, ETF's and oil, you can say your heavily invested in kitty litter.
