ex date is 10/23 so that means i must own the stock on that date. but the record date is 10/27 does that mean i must own the stock to that date to qualify. thanks in advance.
Awp-if the x date is 10-23 you must buyyyy the stock by 10-22. best of luck cat
thanks for your response. i have 10,400 shares at present but i,m looking to sell 2000. i will buy them back but dont i have to have hem on 10/27 for the divy, that is my question which i probably did not properly post to the board. thanks again.
x date is 2 days before record date; record date is 10/27 so your trade date in order to qualify for the Oct div is 10/22
thank you for your response but it does not make sense to me. as far as the dates go.
