Kimberly Clark (KMB)

Kimberly-Clark, together with its subsidiaries, engages in manufacturing and marketing health care products.
Yield: 3.73%
Dividend Amount: $0.74
Ex-Dividend Date: June 06, 2012
Beta: 0.32

Strategy: Buy Kimberly Clark stock and offer to sell the June $77.50 strike or lower call for 46 cents over the intrinsic value. After qualifying for the dividend, I will attempt to close out the trade with a gain of near 24 cents, plus the dividend earned.

Most likely my shares are called away the day before trading ex-dividend (resulting from the option buyer wanting the dividend), and I gain about 46 cents. The most I can make is $1.20 if I hold the covered call through option expiration day and the stock gets called away.
