AAPL will be trading x-dividend tomorrow so today is the LAST day to buy shares and get a dividend.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
AAPL pays only $2.65 per share. For a $450 stock that is rather insignificant. The stock is supposed to drop $2.65 on the 8th but you never know i.e. it could go up $5 instead of $7.65.
Exdividend is on the 7th. Tomorrow is the record date. You have to own the stock by the closing of the record date to get the dividend.
Thursday February 7th = ex-div date
Monday February 11 = record date
Thursday February 14th = pay date
once the dividend is paid out tomorrow, is it safe to short the stock ?
Sell all you got tomorrow.
Oh, you don't have any, do you...
