Dividends can reflect a remarkably clear image of a company’s financial strength and present condition. Low dividend per share data, however, may not be a sign of poor performance.

Ahead of the record date, the ex-dividend date is the most important date to know as it denotes the date on which any dividends outstanding will remain with the seller rather than be transferred to the buyer upon the sale.
