If looking for yield with buy stock/sell call, Six Flags recently raised dividend, yield is 6% or so. Stock dropped off about 10% recently due to missed revenue mark. Stock is selling at about 56, the June 2013 55 option you can sell for about $4.5, the 60 option at about $2.50.

Six Flags (SIX) does have a preffered. At par, its yields about 7%...but I did not price it....I assume its selling at a premium.

Bought Boomerang yesterday by Mr. Lewis, read about half of it, very entertaining. Did notice another book titled something like.."Risky is the New Safe". Charlie's book?
