You had to be a stockholder at the close of market yesterday to get the dividend. Normally today would be a down day due to that, but we are up 11% - about time!
certainly helps being up so there's a cushion for it go go ex-dividend. these days, ex dividends seems to be taking stocks even lower.
So how much is the divy in US dollars?
Ex-dividend date for 2008 interim dividend8 August.I though it was tomorrow, but the invester relations site says 8/8, friday..
Thanks for pointing out as I was wrong. EX day is actually tomorrow so today is the last day for the dividend. The 8th is the day of record.http://www.investorrelations.lloydstsb.com/ir/uk_dividend_history_page.aspThe ADR dividend will be paid on October 14, 2008. The Depository will confirm the US dollar amount shortly after October 1, 2008.
