This June the TSMC web site has information that says there will be a common dividend (June 19th) and ex dividend (June 13th) given out to the shareholders. Does this record date mean that at the closing time (on those dates given), whoever has the TSM stock will receive the dividend? Also the website mentioned a NT$1.9998 for each stock share. Does that mean I receive about 2 dollars in cash for every 1. Lastely why did the stock take a hit today? Thanks for the feedback.
If you have owned for a while you get the div. Not sure the exact date but you can check back the old news stories. Price goes down to reflect the shares/cash. Cash is Taiwanese money and not very much US $. I'm not sure the exchange rate.
