Yes I understand that too. I was trying to find if you can sell AFTER the EX_DIVI DAY and still get the divi... It's ok found all the info I need on the BATS Website. Below if anyone else wants to learn too.
Yes I understand that. I'm just trying to find out, if it goes ex-divi on May 2nd, can I sell them May 3rd or do I have to wait for another date... All I want is to get the Divi. Happy to hold as have no intention to sell but would just like to learn for future reference. Thanks.
Hi Newbie here, can anyone tell me how dividends work? Do you have to own the shares for a certain amount of time to be eligible for the dividend payout? Also the day they go ex-div, can you sell them the next day and still get the divi or do you need to be holding them until payment date?
