Yield: 3.78%Dividend Amount: 49 cents Ex-Dividend Date: Nov. 13 Beta: 0.67 Strategy: Buy stock and offer to sell the November $49.00 strike or lower call for 30 cents over the intrinsic value. The option will likely get exercised early for a gain of 30 cents the day before trading ex-dividend. The amount of profit (as a yield rate) for the holding period makes this strategy superior to actually capturing the dividend and holding for another week or more.
