    It also means that if you own the stock and want to sell it but also collect the next dividend, you must sell ON the ex-dividend date or later.

    If one buys shares on that date or after, you do not get the dividend just declared. Normally, the next day's trading price starts at a level less than the X-div date's closing price, because the company's value has been reduced by payout to shareholders. If you own the stock one day or more before the X-div date, you get the dividend.

    jeks, It means that you must purchase the stock before March 18 to be eligible for this dividend payment.

    As expected DIV is held at $1.25 - I have been LONG AGNC since Dec 2009 and in it Long Term for Dividends and DRIP purchase. Will buy more on any DROP after Ex Div. Great stock for any Dividend Portfolio

    AGNC 15.5% is an excellent dividend play. You may want to add ARR with a 14.3% dividend to your portfolio.

    Bought it on the recent dip. I'm a happy camper. Jonk must be choking on the bile.

    I ended up with over 16,000 in dividen's last yr.I ended up some of time with 3 dividen's in one month.What helped was aol.(5.15) cent anounced in aug.2012 In jan their stock price jumped from around 30 to 36 a sh.It seemed anyalist were questioning how could the do it.Arr was one of my favorite's psec fsc.Being retired I can watch and kind of stay on top of it.But it's a part-time job watching your principal go up and down.I don't know anything about sport's.The "ego" got damaged a few time's.Because of guessing what was going on in Europe around july 2012.Mostly smoke&mirror's.That's what you need to decifer.Iwas up near 90 thous.Low 68 now back up to 75thous.Hope to see it keep going up.But the i.r.s. know's too!
