I understand that all owners of record as of today will receive the dividend. My question is what if you sell through the 401K today? Are you still not officially a shareholder of record and eligible for the dividend since the transaction doesn't officially take place until tomorrow?
The ex-div date was yesterday. Sign in to your account and select the "Dividends" menu item. You'll see the ex date, the distribution date, etc. Today I logged in and saw the quarterly dividend already there.
Guess I will find out soon.
Today I reallocated my Basic to 100% ESOP to see if I will get the dividend. Will post if/ when the dividend shows up. I should have done it yesterday to be safe, but forgot. Not much in my Basic so its not a big deal.
