    If a share has dividend yield at 6% & you have $10k of shares. Does this mean you will get 6% x 10k? Also, What if you sell your share after the ex date will you get the portion of the yield?

    Today 4th July Westpac was due to pay the interim dividends. Have any of you expert investors received the payment? For some reason the dividend has not appeared in my bank account. I wonder if something went wrong with my bank account or if other investors have the same problem Thanks
