    ex-dividend date question;

    The PR Newswire press release issued by BLYTH on August 8th says ex-dividend is October 1st;;;Yahoo key stats page shows ex-dividend is September 27th. Safe to assume company issued release is correct??? How do you verify which is correct???

    • "The PR Newswire press release issued by BLYTH on August 8th says ex-dividend is October 1st"

      No, it doesn't. It says the record date is October first. Record date and ex-date are not the same thing.

      "Yahoo key stats page shows ex-dividend is September 27th. Safe to assume company issued release is correct?"

      In this case both are correct because the press release doesn't mention the ex-date.

      "How do you verify which is correct?"

      You have to realize that record date and ex-date are not the same thing, then read the press releases carefully. If you do a google search for Understanding Dividend Dates, and read the first return, you'll never be confused on this point again.

    • You have to own the stock by Sept.27th....
