  • Dividends are typically published a few weeks before the ex-dividend date.
  • Investors should buy shares before the ex-dividend day to receive dividends as an eligible shareholder.
  • Some notable companies like Cochlear are going ex-dividend today.

Stock exchange rules determine the ex-dividend date once the corporation sets the record date. The ex-dividend date is usually one day (business day) before the record date for stocks. Investors will not get the next dividend payment if they buy a stock on or after the ex-dividend date. In that case, the seller will get the dividend. An investor will get the dividend if he/she buys before the ex-dividend date.

In this article, we will discuss about four companies that went ex-dividend today (28 March 2022), and their performance on the day. These companies include Cochlear Limited, Lycopodium Limited, Naos Emerging Opportunities Company Ltd, and Reece Limited.
