    Hi ALL,
    Could you please recommend good book which covers dividends and options?
    I was wondering if I can play dividend and covered calls just day before ex-dividend day?

    Thank you

    Any decent book which covers option pricing also does dividends. By the way, there's no free lunch in dividends.

    I am not looking for free lunch - I just want to understand how it works when you're dealing with options.

    Thank you

    No worries, I thought I'd give you an advance notice as a lot of people look for free lunch when they ask similar questions.

    You can also search for past discussions as this issue has been discussed numerous times here.

    Charle's Cottle's Options as a Strategic Investment covers it.

    It's McMillan who wrote that book not Cottle!
