If options are fairly priced, then the following equation applies:

call price + strike price - stock price - put price + dividend - carrying cost = 0

If this equation is not satisfied, then conversion arbitrage resulting in risk-free profit is possible. Assuming risk-free profit cannot be realized, this equation can be used to determine the implied dividend based on current option prices.
