    borrowing 475 million to pay special dividend

    Like to buy and simultaneously sell DIM covered call to capture dividend. Very low DIM option volume though, so concerned whether the options will be sold. Of course there is always the possibility of getting assigned in which case the loss is the commissions paid for three transactions, first to buy stock than to sell covered call than to pay commission once get assigned.

    All inputs are much appreciated.
