What is an Ex-Dividend (XD) date? Also called the ex-date, it is the day the stock goes ex-dividend or trades without the dividend. If an investor wants to be entitled to receive the next dividend, he/she is required to own a stock before the record date set by the company. On this date and after, the buyer can buy shares of any company and not be entitled to receive the dividend.

Once the company declares the date of record, the stock exchanges set the Ex-dividend date. Anyone purchasing a stock on or after its XD date will not receive the dividend the company will pay. Instead, the seller will retain right to receive the dividend. If a buyer owns ahead of the XD date, the buyer will be the one to get the dividend.
