How do I calculate the ex dividend date?
In order to find the ex-dividend date of a company, investors should look for the date the stock will go ex-dividend in the company's financial reports. The ex-dividend date is the date when the company's stock price adjusts to reflect the amount of dividends paid out. To calculate the ex-dividend date,
subtract the dividend payment date from the record date. The record date is the day the company takes a "snapshot" of shareholders who are entitled to receive the dividend.
Investors can use Sourcetable to easily calculate the ex-dividend date. They should take into account the dividend payment date, record date, and the payment date for an accurate calculation.
