Hi. Does anyone know that if I bought some shares today (Aug. 5th, 2014), will I be receiving the quarterly div payout by their next PayDate of 8/29/2014 ? Thanks in advance.
why don't you educated yourself and look this up, instead of relying on others to spoon feed you?
You are about to get hosed.
How ? What do you mean ??
The Ex-Dividend date is August 12th. What that means is any shares you buy BEFORE open on August 12th will pay the dividend on the 29th.
So if you buy shares on August 11th (or sooner) you get the Dividend. If you buy shares August 12th or later you do not.
Good Luck and be careful.
