say you are in on the 29th the divy date, can you sell the next day and still get the divy
Yes, even if you sell on the 30th, you are still considered to be a holder of the stock on that day. You must own the stock by the ex dividend date which I believe is the 28th.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
- You must own the stock by the ex dividend date which I believe is the 28th. -
Correct; you have to own the stock on the 28th. The dividend will be paid on March 1.
You have to purchase the stock prior to the 28th to get the dividend.
