Are you sure that you can sell it on the x div date? I thought the rule is you have to be owner of the stock by close of x dividend!
sure you can sell it on the x-date, you just won't get the div
If you were the owner of record as of yesterday and sold today you will get the div.
Yes you will.
correction:: the rule is that you have to be owner of the stock one day before the x dividend!due date...
Sentiment: Strong Buy
you must be an owner of the stock at the close of business on the day prior to the ex-dividend date. You needed to own VZ when trading closed yesterday to get the dividend, if you buy today you will not get the dividend.
and vz still went up amazing ex div
