Must buy stock no later than Aug 2nd.Ex-div is Aug 3. (Buy stock on Aug 3rd -- and you missed the dividend).
Sometimes I don't know if Yahoo is sleeping behind the wheel.Whenever I need firm info on ex-div dates I always go to Scottrade and look on my account.Sold Sprint this morning and the darn thing kept rising. Anyway, I made a quick score for holding for only 15 days; Cramer was right about that anyway.My concern with NYB which I buy into for the div and sell after stock runs up to take a profit. NLY has been doing OK also as a trading stock.Thanks for your info.
