What's the return if your option is assigned before ex-div?

The $3.95 option premium will be captured in full if someone calls the stock away before the dividend. That would be a big plus and not a minus. Nobody would do that until sometime into 2015 and only if the stock has moved up a fair amount. An early assignment would result in a higher return than 10% so it is not a worry.
