you may or may not want to look at this one,

Courier Corp, CRRC, dividend is 5.5%. They are profitable. October 15 call is over $1.00, stock is 15.17.

October is the furthest out (5 months). It possible the option could get exercised in front one or both of the ex-dividend your rate of return could get greatly reduced, from roughly 15% down to 8% annualized (I'm just doing a very rough estimate here).

They report earnings again in early May.

I've done buy the stock/sell the call option for quite a few years with CRRC, results have been better than a 10% annual return.

P.S. If you only do 100 shares, online broker commissions double when options are excercied...instead of $9.95, you'll pay $20 something if someone calls the stock away from you.
