    Dividend Capture Explained

    Dividend capture is buying a stock just prior to the Ex-dividend date in order to capture the dividend.

    The Ex-dividend Date is a key date to remember for dividend paying stocks.
    If you purchase stock prior to the Ex-dividend date, and do not sell prior to the Ex-dividend date, you are a stockholder on the Record Date and YOU WILL receive the upcoming declared dividend payment.

    Company XYZ announces their upcoming Reported Dividend in a Press Release Dated October 03, 2013
    Company XYZ declares a regular dividend payable on November 01, 2013 to shareholder of Record on October 25, 2013. The Ex-dividend Date is October 23, 2031.

    11/01/13

    It is important to know when you buy or sell stock; there is a three-day settlement (three stock trading days) on all buy or sell stock transaction orders.

    You must always be a stockholder on the Record Date to receive a dividend payment. To be entitled to the upcoming dividend you would need to buy the stock three days prior to the Record Date, one day prior to the Ex-dividend Date, October 23, 2013.

    Upon the opening of the Market on October 23, 2013, two stock market trading days before the Record Date the stock price is quoted Ex-dividend and is adjusted by the amount of the declared dividend being paid and begins trading at the current valuation market bid/ask price.
    The minimum holding requirement to be entitled to the upcoming stock dividend payment is to buy a stock three stock trading days prior to the Record Date, and Selling on or after the Ex-dividend Date.

    You must own the stock one-day to be entitled to receive the upcoming declared stock dividend payment.

    If you purchase stock prior to the Ex-dividend date, and sell before the Ex-dividend Date, you WILL NOT be a stockholder on the Record Date and you WILL NOT receive the upcoming declared dividend payment.
