What are important Dividend Dates to remember?
Here are important dates related to dividend distribution:
|Date||What It Means|
|Declaration Date||The company's announcement or declaration date that it will be distributing dividends|
|Ex-Date||Also called "Ex-Dividend Date," this is the first day a buyer of a stock is NOT entitled or is EX-cluded from receiving dividends|
|Record Date||The date a stockholder should be "recorded" in the books of the company to be eligible to receive dividends|
|Payment Date||The date dividends are actually paid to eligible shareholders|
Take note that stock prices typically rise from the time the dividend was announced (Declaration Date) until the Ex-Date (the first day when buying a stock does NOT entitle the buyer to the dividends).
Stock prices would fluctuate and possibly rise right before the Ex-Date because investors are scrambling to buy the stock in order to be entitled to receive dividends. Historically, as well, stock prices start to decline from the Ex-Date onwards since those who bought the stock, just to receive dividends, start selling it because they have already earned the right to receive the dividends.
