Re: EX DIVIDEND DATES

Look in the FT any Monday for the last ex dividend date or visit individual company sites.
Knowing the date can be useful if you are wanting income and you need to be clear which year the quoted yield is for (i.e. forecast yield or historical yield). In general however the share price drops by the same amount as the dividend the moment it goes ex dividend.

And since the stamp duty, and often commission, are proportional to the price you are effectively paying a charge on money which immediately gets returned to you.
