On November 9, 2020, Perspecta (NYSE: PRSP) declared a dividend payable on January 15, 2021 to its shareholders. Perspecta also announced that shareholders on the company's books on or before November 24, 2020 are entitled to the dividend. The stock will then go ex-dividend 1 business day(s) before the record date. Perspecta has an ex-dividend date planned for November 23, 2020. The company's current dividend payout sits at $0.07. That equates to a dividend yield of 1.43% at current price levels.The Significance Of 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 Perspecta's Dividend Payouts And Yields Over the past year, Perspecta has experienced an overall upward trend regarding its dividend payouts and yields. Last year on December 3, 2019 the company's payout was $0.06, which has since grown by $0.01. Similarly, Perspecta's dividend yield in last year was 0.86%, which has since grown by 0.57%. 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.Click here to find details on Perspecta's previous dividends.See more from Benzinga * Click here for options trades from Benzinga * Perspecta: Q2 Earnings Insights * Earnings Scheduled For November 10, 2020(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
