What are dividend, ex-dividend date, and record date?
A dividend is the portion of a listed company's profits that the company announces to pay to its shareholders. Eligible shareholders will be able to receive these additional profits along with their returns. The Board of Directors of the company announces the dividend, the size of the dividend, the record date, along with the payment date. The company also announces the ex-dividend date, which means an investor is required to buy the stocks before that particular date to get the dividend. If an investor buys the stock on the ex-dividend date or after, the company will get the dividend. Additionally, the record date is known as the date, the day by which one investor should be on the company's shareholders' book in order to get the dividend. By announcing the record date and ex-dividend date of the dividend, companies try to attract more investors from the market. So, investors should keep the reports of company board meetings for any dividend announcement.
