Admin Question re Shareholder of Record


Recommended Posts

FFH pays its dividends to shareholders of Record on January 19th.  Normal settlement is T+3 for common stock.  If I sold on January 17th would I still be a shareholder of record on January 19th or is it the trade date that matters.  January 16?


Thanks, A.

Answered my own question - should have looked it up first.


Anyway, in the case I have provided the following would apply:


Friday, January 14 is the last day to buy FFH and still receive the dividend.  Effective Monday, January 17th FFH goes ex-dividend. 


As an aside to my question I expect it is already trading as if the dividend has been paid given the low volume.
