A company that provides shareholders a dividend on its stock needs a way to find out who will be entitled to receive the most recent dividend payment. Th role of the ex-dividend date (i.e. without dividend date) starts from there. A stockholder is required to own a stock ahead of the ex-dividend date until the date of record (typically two business days later) to be entitled to receive the upcoming dividend payment.

The dividend will eventually be paid on the appropriately named dividend payment date (normally takes three weeks following the ex-dividend date). According to Investopedia, a stock trades ex-dividend on or after the ex-dividend date (ex-date). At this point the person who owns the security on the ex-dividend date will be awarded the payment, regardless of who currently holds the stock. After the ex-date has been declared, the stock will usually drop in price by the amount of the expected dividend.
