More than DOUBLE average daily Trading Volume......Barracudas moving in to Capture that 4 1/4% Dividend coming up in a few days. Why Not? Who can blame them, I did the same.....beats the hek out of 0.04% Chase pays me on my Savings.
"It depends on the STRIKE Price.....if it is $20 they will obviously exercise, if higher than $21 probably NOT"
Agreed. The msg was targeted at the other poster.
They might think that they could sell an ITM FEB call, capture the dividend and then close the call early before expiration. This clever move will likely get their shares called early before ex-dividend. No stock and no dividend.
Very strange things happen with Intel around dividend time.
