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.
My first post here. I was wondering if for example one is indifferent between capital gains and receiving a dividend (say assessable income <18,000), would it be a plausible idea to purchase a dividend say 2 weeks before ex-dividend date, and then sell the shares just before it hits...
Im trying to find a site or reference of the Ex-Dividend dates of all the companies that offer dividends on the ASX.
The best I seem to be able to find is a list of Dividends coming up in the next month and even then it seems to not have all of them.
Is there a resource somewhere?
I'm a newbie. Just reading and learning for the moment.
Is there are good strategies for buying shares just before ex-dividend date? E.g.
- which share to buy?
- when to buy?
- when to sell?
- is this a tax efficient approach?
Thank you all.
