« Back to Glossary Index

The ex-dividend date is the cut-off date established by a company in order to determine which shareholders are eligible to receive a declared dividend or distribution. Shareholders who have purchased the stock before the ex-dividend date are entitled to the dividend. Transactions that occur on or after the ex-dividend date are not entitled to the dividend. This date is important for investors as buying a stock before or on the ex-dividend date ensures they receive the upcoming dividend.
