So in order to get the dividend, one must own before the 19th? So anyones opinion please, is it worth buying a few hundred shares, than sell after?
you are an idiot, you can't make money by collecting the div then selling
You are too late. You need to buy at yesterday. It will take at least 3 days for your name to show up in the company's record, so they can send you the dividend check. No record, no check.
i did buy on 5/23. How long do i need to hold onto those, in order to collect dividend?
