vz like t has continued to rise no matter what happens because of their dividends. Safe havens for CD folks forced into the market. I am in t but don't like this continued increases because the big boys are going to pull the plug and down the drain you go.
I asked the question before I did some research. Bottom line i You must buy at least 1 day before ex div date. But The recommended way to go is to buy on the ex div date, miss the div but buy in at a lower price when the stock price drops to cover the div payment. But it's nice to get the div and not wait 3 months.
It takes 3 days for the purchase of shares to clear. Will those buying for the dividend today get it?
