What is a dividend?

A dividend is a sum of money that a company pays out to its shareholders..

When am I entitled to a dividend?

If a company announces it is going to pay a dividend, it will also announce a date, known as the ‘ex-date’, which is used as a deadline to mark whether a shareholder is entitled to a dividend payment.

You must hold the stock when the market opens on the dividend ex-date to be entitled to a dividend payment.
