The Significance Of An Ex-Dividend Date

An ex-dividend date is when a company's shares stop trading with its current dividend payout in preparation for the company to announce a new one. Usually, a company's ex-dividend date falls one business day before its record date. Investors should keep this in mind when purchasing stocks because buying them on or after ex-dividend dates does not qualify them to receive the declared payment. Newly declared dividends go to shareholders who have owned that stock before the ex-dividend date. Most ex-dividend dates operate on a quarterly basis.

Omega Healthcare's Dividend Performance

Over the past year, Omega Healthcare has seen its dividend payouts remain the same and its yields climb upward overall. Last year on October 30, 2019 the company's payout sat at $0.67, which has returned to its value today. Omega Healthcare's dividend yield last year was 6.32%, which has since grown by 2.61%.
Companies use dividend yields in different strategic ways. Some companies may opt to not give yields altogether to reinvest in themselves. Other companies may opt to increase or decrease their yield amounts to control how their shares circulate throughout the stock market.
