What is the confusion about the ex date; the press release said paid on 12/21/12 to holders of record at the close on 12/20/12. ETrade says that is wrong the ex date is the 24th, either the press date is wrong or ETrade is wrong!!! Now what happens???
The press release from the pittsburgh news wire clearly stated that the payment date was 12/21/12 and the ex-date was 12/20/12 The press release was from MHH so I called and confirmed because it did not seem right. I know the rules...thanks for the education any way!
