I did a synthetic call on Ford at $10 for Jan 14 expiration. The Jan 14 $10 call is now selling for $4.15/$4.20 and stock closed at $14.11 today. The upcoming Ex-Dividend date is 01/28/13. Is there any good reason for not exercising the call option and earning the dividend as it is more than the TV? After exercising I can continue to write covered calls and collect the premiums.
