WRONG! If you buy on fri. and sell on mon. you will NOT get divi.!!The trade has to settle.(2-3days)HOWEVER if you OWN AGNC.(settled) on fri and sell on MON. you WILL get the divi.If do not BELIEVE do the REASEARCH!!!
No, Monday is the ex-div date (the first day the stock trades ex-dividend, without the right to collect the dividend). The record date is Wednesday. If you hold the stock through Friday evening, and sell Monday morning, your broker will delay settlement for three days, or until Thursday morning, making you the shareholder of record at close on Wednesday night. That will make you the recipient of the dividend payment, which will be paid into your account on April 27, which is also a Wednesday.
on friday and sell on monday, you will get the divvie, but likely lose at least that much and likely MORE in prinipal. Record date is 2 business days after MONDAY so buys today DO DEFINITELY QUALIFY FOR THE DIVVIE...Secondly, learn now the spell 'research' OKAY????
