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.Southwest Gas Holdings's Dividend Payouts And Yields Over the past year, Southwest Gas Holdings has experienced an overall upward trend regarding its dividend payouts and yields.
