    Ex-Dividend Date Insight: Kadant

    On November 19, 2020, Kadant (NYSE:KAI) announced shareholders can expect to receive a dividend payable on February 4, 2021. The stock will then go ex-dividend 1 business day(s) before the record date. The ex-dividend date for Kadant will be on January 6, 2021. The company's current dividend payout is at $0.24. That equates to a dividend yield of 0.73% at current price levels.The Significance Of An Ex-Dividend Date An ex-dividend date signals when a company's shares cease to trade with its current dividend payout. There is a small intermission period before the company announces a new dividend. 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.Kadant's Dividend Performance Over the past year, Kadant has experienced an overall upward trend regarding its dividend payouts and a downward trend regarding its yields. Last year on January 8, 2020 the company's payout was $0.23, which has since grown by $0.01. Kadant's dividend yield last year was 0.98%, which has since decreased by 0.25%. 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 Kadant click here.See more from Benzinga * Click here for options trades from Benzinga * Understanding Wabash National's Ex-Dividend Date * Understanding Ingles Markets's Ex-Dividend Date(C) 2021 Benzinga.com.
