What do “record date”, “ex-dividend date” and “payment date” mean?
Record Date: When a dividend is declared, the Company’s Board of Directors sets the “record date” for that dividend. You must be a “stockholder of record” (on the Company’s books) as of the “record date” in order to receive the dividend.

Ex-Dividend Date: “Ex-dividend” is a financial expression meaning without dividend. In order to be a “stockholder of record” who is entitled to receive the dividend, you must purchase shares before the ex-dividend date. The ex-dividend date is typically two business days before the record date. If you purchase stock on the ex-dividend date or after, you will not receive the next dividend payment. If you purchase before the ex-dividend date, you will receive the dividend.

Payment Date: The “payment date” is the date the dividend is paid to the Company’s “stockholders of record”.
