Help with Dividend


I am very new to investing and would like to clarify how dividends work. Let's say I buy Target stock today. Their ex-dividend date is 8/14. Will I be paid the dividend? Or are you required to hold the equity for full year before you get paid dividend?

  1. If you buy before the dividend date you will receive that dividend. The more stock you buy the more you receive in dividend payment. You would want to set up your brokerage account to reinvest as well for the wonderful affect of compound interest. If you need any advice on investing please reach out to myself or other experts. I hope this helps. Happy investing!
