Does anyone know what the April 2011 $28 Call was selling for on the past Ex-Div date of 3/18?I can't seem to find historical option prices?Any help? Thanks.
Can't help you with the historical option price research, but the call prices on HTS & AGNC tend to collapse back toward intrinsic (or lower, in some cases) near ex-div.So looking up the PPS on the date in question and subtracting 28 should give you a good enough idea to plan with.
Thank you both, I'll check out MarketWatch.I see the stock hitting $31 + on the day before the ex-div date based on historical data.And an SPO a few days later.
You can go to marketwatch and they will have the prices on the options table
