Today i bought 200 LAMR and instantly sold 2 Calls to collect the premium. The ex-dividend day is 19th June and i will get 50 cent per share.
What are the key data:
- 100 $ dividend (200*0,5)
- 2.140 $ option premium (200*10.7)
- As long as the stock´s above 65 $ –> -1.830 $
So if the shares are not called away before the ex-dividend day i´ll receive 410 $ in 31 days.
Even if they get called away, i still get 310$.
Requirement: The stock remains above 65 $.
Update 19th July: LAMR closed on Friday at 65.63$. 200 stocks have been called away, i got the premium and i already received the dividend. Outcome: 410$.
