Hi guys. Sorry to ask yet another basic question but google is not telling me the answer. Can someone please explain the exdividend basics. Specifically, should I buy before, at, or after this date? Thanks. You guys have been really helpful so far.
I haven't spent a lot of time reading up on dividends and the impact on stock price. The reason that I ask is because in one of my subscriptions "The Chartist" they have moved their trailing stops a few times in recent weeks due to ex-dividend date.
I am very ignorant when it comes to this...
Hi,got a couple of question.
If a share ex-div date was 1/4 and record date 7/4..
If i brought 1st lot of shares on the 1/4,would i still get div (settle 4/4).what if i sold it on the 2/4 (settle 7/4).
what if i brought 2nd lot of shares on the 2/4 and settle 7/4?
just a bit confused...
