Monsanto Company (MON)

Monsanto is a leading global provider of technology-based solutions and agricultural products and is headquartered in St. Louis, MO.

Yield: 1.51%
Dividend Amount: 30 cents
Ex-Dividend Date: July 03, 2012
Beta: 0.91

Strategy: Buy Monsanto stock and offer to sell the July $75.00 strike or lower call for $1.75 over the intrinsic value.

I will look to close out the covered option with a gain of about 63.96 cents, plus dividend. The most I can make is $2.05, if I hold the covered call through option expiration day and the stock gets called away.
