Share:

On October 21, 2020, Rush Enterprises (NASDAQ: RUSHA) announced shareholders can expect to receive a dividend payable on December 10, 2020. The stock will then go ex-dividend 1 business day(s) before the record date. Rush Enterprises has an ex-dividend date planned for November 6, 2020. The company's current dividend payout sits at $0.14. That equates to a dividend yield of 1.55% at current price levels.

The Significance Of Ex-Dividend Dates

Ex-dividend dates signal when company shares cease to trade with their current dividend payouts. There is a small intermission period before companies announce new dividends. 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.
