Does Brunswick (BC) have what it takes to be a top stock pick for momentum investors? Let's find out.
On October 20, 2020, Brunswick (NYSE: BC) announced shareholders can expect to receive a dividend payable on December 18, 2020. The stock will then go ex-dividend 1 business day(s) before the record date. Brunswick, whose current dividend payout is $0.27, has an ex-dividend date set at November 23, 2020. The payout equates to a dividend yield of 1.72% at current price levels.What Is An Ex-Dividend Date? Ex-dividend dates are when company shares stop trading with their current dividend payouts in preparation for those companies to announce new ones. Usually, a company's ex-dividend date falls one business day before its record date. Investors should keep this in mind when purchasing stocks because buying them on or after ex-dividend dates does not qualify them to receive the declared payment. Newly declared dividends go to shareholders who have owned that stock before the ex-dividend date. Typically, companies will announce and implement new dividend yields on a quarterly basis.Understanding Brunswick's Dividend History Over the past year, Brunswick has experienced an overall upward trend regarding its dividend payouts and a downward trend regarding its yields. Last year on November 18, 2019 the company's payout was $0.24, which has since grown by $0.03. Brunswick's dividend yield last year was 1.79%, which has since decreased by 0.07%. Companies use dividend yields in different strategic ways. Some companies may opt to not give yields altogether to reinvest in themselves. Other companies may opt to increase or decrease their yield amounts to control how their shares circulate throughout the stock market.To read more news on Brunswick click here.See more from Benzinga * Click here for options trades from Benzinga * Unusual Options Activity Insight: Agios Pharmaceuticals * Analyzing ViacomCBS's Unusual Options Activity(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
