    Positive & Negative catalysts

    Even the Motley Fool wise azzzzzss know this:

    "One of the important dates in a dividend cycle is the "ex-dividend" date (often abbreviated "ex-div"). According to the IRS, this is the date upon which a new buyer of a stock will not receive a dividend payment. On that day, the money no longer belongs to the company, and new shareholders cannot get it, so the exchanges artificially lower the stock price by the amount of the dividend to reflect the price available to new purchasers."
