  1. some stocks become ex div on 15th june. what time they become ex div? at the open or close ?
  2. stocks open ex(less)the dividend
  3. Yes, you have to have the stock long coming into the 15th to collect dividend. Example: XYZ closes at $25, with a $1.00 dividend. If it were to open "unchanged" it would open at $24. Dividend paid in a few weeks to holders.

  4. Thanks. What happens if I have a short call position (as in iron condor) ?
