No. Wednesday is the record date. You have to own it 3 days before Wednesday. That's Friday. Friday night after After-Hours trading closes, to be exact. If you buy it Friday and sell it Monday, you will be the Shareholder of Record on Wednesday and you will get the dividend.
"the other posters believe if you you can BUY on FRI. and sell on MON. you get divi.....NOT SO"

In this case you're completely wrong, no matter how many times you say it or how many words you type in all capital letters. Read this as many times as it takes for you to understand it and then get back to us: http://groupssa.com/understandingdividenddates.html
