Ex dividend date brings with it a requirement to reduce cash the value per share of the dividend to be paid out per share. As a result, the value of the company is less by the dividend it has to pay out. Makes perfect sense!!lolb43
Interesting - I didn't realize there was a explicit reduction in share value (opposed to the implicit realization by shareholders, who would react accordingly).Probably because this is overwhelming the highest dividend stock I've gotten into.
