Calamos Investments®* has announced monthly distributions and sources of distributions paid in May 2021 to shareholders of its seven closed-end funds (the Funds) pursuant to the Funds' respective distribution plans.
On January 21, 2021, Calamos Strategic Total (NASDAQ:CSQ) announced shareholders can expect to receive a dividend payable on February 19, 2021. The stock will then go ex-dividend 1 business day(s) before the record date. The ex-dividend date for Calamos Strategic Total is set for February 11, 2021. The company's current dividend payout sits at $0.1, equating to a dividend yield of 7.7% at current price levels. The Significance Of Ex-Dividend Dates Ex-dividend dates signal when company shares cease to trade with their current dividend payouts. There is a small intermission period before companies announce new dividends. 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. Most ex-dividend dates operate on a quarterly basis. Calamos Strategic Total's Dividend History Over the past year, Calamos Strategic Total has experienced an overall upward trend regarding its dividend payouts and a downward trend regarding its yields. Last year on October 13, 2020 the company's payout was $0.09, which has since grown by $0.01. Calamos Strategic Total's dividend yield last year was 8.25%, which has since decreased by 0.55%. 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 about Calamos Strategic Total click here.
