On January 15, 2021, Unum (NYSE:UNM) 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. Unum, which has a current dividend per share of $0.28, has an ex-dividend date scheduled for January 28, 2021. That equates to a dividend yield of 4.49% 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. Most ex-dividend dates operate on a quarterly basis. Unum's Dividend History Over the past year, Unum has seen its dividend payouts remain the same and its yields climb upward overall. Last year on January 30, 2020 the company's payout sat at $0.28, which has returned to its value today. Unum's dividend yield last year was 3.91%, which has since grown by 0.58%. 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 Unum's previous dividends.
