Beta: 1.45 Strategy: Buy Stanley Black & Decker stock and offer to sell the June $67.50 strike or lower call for 53 cents more than the intrinsic value. If my shares are called away before trading ex-dividend (resulting from the option buyer wanting the dividend), I gain about 53 cents. The most I can make is 94 cents if I hold the covered call through option expiration day and the stock gets called. Stanley's price has moved lower to test support near the 200-day moving average. A break below that average is bearish (especially a second break below). Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. ( CCE) Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. produces, distributes, and markets nonalcoholic beverages.

Beta: 1.19 Strategy: Buy Coca-Cola Enterprises stock and offer to sell the June $28.00 strike or lower call for 46 cents over the intrinsic value. What really makes this a strong dividend capture is the unlikeliness of the shares called away before the dividend. If CCE does move up enough to incentivize option owners to call the shares early, the gain is almost 2% for two weeks. The 200-day moving average is $26.85, supporting the hedge against anything other than really bad news about the company.
