What about a company like Enterprise Products (pipeline operator) for an income producing options strategy. While I'm not well versed on volatility and such you can sell the March 06 $25 out of the money (stock at $24.79) calls for $1.00 on a stock currently giving a 6.8% dividend.

Would this sort of trade be a good bet for a covered call sell?

Mostly posting to see how others go through the motions in analyzing on whether a stock is a good bet for these types of trades. I've been lurking on this board since it was started and there have been some awesome options talk on here. I've learned alot (the merck thread is one I go back to alot to study).
