Let's see if Yahoo allows this one. Here's the final part of what I was trying to post above:
Below rkctech asked a similar question about collecting the dividends, and your response was:
>> Do not collect dividends in the normal sense with options. Do not collect at all with Calls. The dividend is included in the premium of ATM and ITM Short Puts. <<
I understand this, but in your strategy description, none of the puts you sold were more than $1.40. So, none of them included the dividend. If those puts didn't include the dividend, and you weren't collecting the dividend by owning the shares, how do you get the dividend? That's what I don't understand.
As far as I can tell, the dividend wasn't collected either directly or through the put premiums...at least in Doc's example.
