What is the record date for a dividend?
In order for the shareholder of the stock to receive the dividend, the owner must be the owner on record on the record date (aka “date of record”). The record date is typically one business day after the ex-dividend date. If you are listed as the shareholder on the record date, then you can expect to receive the dividend that was previously declared. There is no financial statement impact on the record date.
