DO I definitely get the dividend? My trade slip says it does not clear until Dec 12th.
and when is the first day I can sell and still get the dividend?
I bought on margin and need to sell ASAP.
Yeah you get the dividend provided you don't sell before the ex-div date which is Dec 12th I think...
As long as you don't trade before x date you are ok......just had that confirmed with sharebuilders who I purchase the stock thru.
