Why is everyone saying it is today, June 25th?
doesn't matter now.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Since everyone put me on ignore, I feel very comfortable saying nothing.
"The combined dividend of $0.25 is payable on July 31, 2014, to shareholders of record as of June 27, 2014."
June 27th is the date the company looks at its records to determine who owns shares and accordingly who is entitled to the dividend.
The ex-date is the second business day before the date of record.
The reason for an ex-date is it takes 3 days from the transaction date for a change to be entered into the company's record books.
The press release was wrong.
Ex Div is June 25. Date of record is June 27.
go get mom that quart of milk
