Hibbett Sports Ex-Dividend Date Explained
To determine whether or not an investor can expect to receive the Hibbett Sports dividend payment on Mar 28, 2023, 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 HIBB stock on Mar 15, 2023 or after, they will not receive the next dividend payment on Mar 28, 2023. Instead, the seller will receive the dividend. If the investor purchases or owns Hibbett Sports stock today, before the ex-dividend date of Mar 15, 2023, they will get the dividend payment of $0.25 per share on Mar 28, 2023.
