Abstract
We develop and showcase a simple no-arbitrage methodology for the prediction of discrete dividend payments, based exclusively on market prices of options via the put-call parity. Our approach integrates all available option market data and simultaneously calibrates the market-implied discount curve, thus ensuring consistency across spot and derivative markets. We illustrate our method using stocks from the German blue-chip index DAX.
