hey guys, could someone clarify this question for me,
say for example, stock XYZ declared a dividend of 20c. The stock goes ex-div on the 6th of Jan. The record date is say 12 of Jan.
so here's the q, i know that if i purchased the shares before the 6th, (cum-div) and held it, i would receive the 20c dividend.
however what if i bought the shares before the 6th and sold it after the ex-div date but before the record date? say the 8th of jan..do i still receive the dividend?
does this also apply to entitlements eg rights issues etc?
