ABB Ltd is an attractive, big-dividend (4.3% yield), industrial automation company that operates out of Switzerland and trades on the New York Stock Exchange. And the options market is currently offering some very attractive premium income on the shares thanks to an unsurprising dose of shortsighted market participants. This report explains why we like the company and why we like the trade. More specifically, we believe this is an attractive trade to place today, and potentially Tuesday and/or Wednesday, as long as the share price doesn’t move too dramatically before then.
If you are looking for an attractive dividend yield and the potential for healthy price gains, then this industrial automation company is worth considering. In particular, the current valuation is attractive (we expect multiple expansion and earnings growth), the company has significant competitive advantages, and it generates tons of cash to support its growing dividend payments, attractive share repurchases and important capex.
