Will I get the paout if I buy today?
No - you would have had to be in on 9/17 to get paid for this quarter. The ex date was 9/18 and the pay date is 10/25. Price should drop a bit after paydate. That would be a good time to get in for the next quarter.
Ha ha ha ... you pulling my chain. I seen the dividnt run up all week. I made the big purchse yesterday.
Slight correction the ex date. It wason 9/19, so you needed to hold on 9/18 or earlier, and the pay date to receive the dividend funds is 10/25 ( tomorrow), as you said.
