Schwab says ex date is 4.14 Per Reuters Terminal
I bought 300 shares of BPT and sold 3 April 70C. On monday, Bpt is expected to drop by $3.00. By hedging with covered calls, I am safe to collect dividends. All my 300 shares will be called away next friday.
The orig. poster is correct. The ex-div date means "except" dividend. Today is the last day to buy. In other words you must buy before the ex-div date.
