Using "The Box" to Estimate Dividends


Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

SPY has a quarterly dividend coming up prior to the December monthly expiration, but the exact amount of the dividend is not known until the ex-dividend date. ITM calls can be at risk of being assignment. The BAT's use "The Box" to estimate the amount of the dividend and identify which options are at risk.
