If I buy a stock before the ex dividend date but sell off before the record date and pay date, will I still be entitled to dividends? Thanks.?
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.
Yup you will still be entitled if you buy before the ex dividend date and hold till the ex dividend ...
