    You must hold the stock the date before the ex-dividend date to be entitled to the dividend. So yes, you will be entitled.

      I'm not sure what is your rationale for doing that because in theory, this may seem like a great strategy but in actual fact, the stock price would have declined in value by the amount of the dividend after the ex-div date. Unless you are thinking of holding this stock for the long-term, I really do not see any point in doing that.
