I thought today was the last day to buy to get the dividend. It goes ex tomorrow! It looks like it went ex today???
AEP went ex-dividend on 5 Feb.
(Dividends are paid on or about March 10, June 10, September 10 and December 10 to shareholders of record on or about February 10, May 10, August 10 and November 10, respectively)
Why the drop today? It started out down 50cents the same as it usually does when it goes ex.
