another .25 dividend..After this goes ex-dividend sell the $12.50 call this way you get the dividend twice
I just ran this by my broker...He said some calls get called most don't..So I'll give it a shot and report back to everyone
Either you didn't ask the right question or you must change your broker.Most in-the-money calls get called before ex-div date.If you had such call would you not call it and just gifted the dividend to the call writer?
I'm going to do it...I'll let you know
why twice...it is the shareholder of record who gets the dividend...so the .25 is added to share price so you sell a covered call.I just thought of this..
Just thought of this? :)Your call will be called before the ex-div. Trust me. (Unless you sell to an idiot.)
