I'm short these covered in my personal account- GREEN MTN COFFEE ROASTER 12/27/2013 $75.00 Call
If they expire worthless I'll sell March 80s next. All option proceeds will be used to buy GMCR coffee for a charity auction I donate to every year.
The Company announced the Board approved an indicated annual dividend of $1.00 per share, payable $0.25 per quarter, and on November 19, 2013 declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.25 per share. The quarterly cash dividend will be paid on February 14, 2014 to GMCR's shareholders of record as of January 17, 2014
If my math is right the XD date is 1/15/2014 so if one were to sell the Jan 75 call option the option owner would have to exercise early in order to gain the 25 cent dividend which is doubtful judging by the value of options the day of expiration today.
