  • The day the stock begins trading without the value of its upcoming dividend payment is known as the ex-dividend date.
  • The board of directors of a corporation decides the record date when a dividend is to be declared.
  • Companies like Rio Tinto, SSR Mining, and QV Equities are going ex-dividend in August 2022.

A stock is considered an ex-dividend if it no longer carries the value of the upcoming dividend payment. The day the stock begins trading without the value of its forthcoming dividend payment is known as the ex-dividend date or "ex-date."

The board of directors of a corporation decides the record date when a dividend is to be declared. In order to receive the dividend payment, a person must be listed as a shareholder on the book of the company as of this date.

According to the stock exchange regulations where the stock is traded, the ex-dividend date is set once the record date has been determined. The ex-date is typically one business day before the record date in this case.

Investors keenly wait for the new month to get the dividends and increase their portfolio values. This month, a few companies have already announced their ex-dividend dates, and in this article we at Kalkine Media® will talk about more companies that will be going ex-dividend during the rest of this month.
