Yield: 3.2%Dividend Amount: 25 cents Ex-Dividend Date: Nov. 14 Beta: 1.09 Strategy: Buy stock and offer to sell the November $31.00 strike or lower call for 35 cents over the intrinsic value as long as the stock remains above $31.10. I will attempt to close out the trade with a gain of near 10 cents, plus dividend. If my shares are called away before trading ex-dividend (resulting from the option buyer wanting the dividend), I gain about 32 cents. The most I can make is 57 cents if I hold the covered call through option expiration day and the stock gets called away. LLTC Payout Ratio TTM data by YCharts
