Bunzl plc (OTC: BZLFY) stock goes ex-dividend on Thursday, November 17, 2022 ahead of the upcoming cash dividend payment of $0.18409 USD per share.
Ex-Dividend Date Explained
To determine whether or not an investor can expect to receive a dividend, they’ll need to look at two important dates – the “record date” or “date of record” and the “ex-dividend date” or “ex-date.” When a company declares a dividend, it sets a record date when you must be on the company’s books as a shareholder to receive the dividend. Once the company sets the record date, the ex-date is set based on stock exchange rules and other factors. The ex-dividend date for stocks is usually set one business day before the record date. If an investor buys a stock on its ex-dividend date or after, they will not receive that next dividend payment. Instead, the seller will receive the dividend. If the investor purchases before the ex-dividend date, they will get the dividend.
