The second quarter 2010 distribution is payable August 13, 2010, to unitholders of record on August 2, 2010. The ex-dividend date is July 29, 2010. What is the first date that I can buy units and not receive dividends? Thanks
May I ask why you want to buy the units and not receive the distribution? If you are trying to avoid tax complications, avoiding the distribution will not be sufficient as ownership of the units triggers the tax complications, not receipt of the distributions.
