Alan Ellman of TheBlueCollarInvestor.com shares a video to provide an answer to a question recently posed by an options trader.

Question: "Thanks for (TRN). I've been doing great with this stock since it was published in your stock reports. I recently sold the (July) $40 call option and noticed on the premium report that the ex-dividend date is July 11th and I'm worried that it may be exercised early. How can we tell if early exercise will occur? Thanks for all your information."
