Interactive Brokers IBKR is $23 +. Dividend yield is 1.7%

Jan 2015 $24 strike has a bid of $1.15. After commission, I think that's roughly 8% return. Add it the 1.7%, and you get close to a 10% annualized return.
They report earnings in early July.

For what its worth, I previously bought shares and wrote call options against only some of it. And I also bought a few call options, which I very rarely do. And to date, I've been happy with the results.
