Understanding Ex-Dividend Dates'

Ex-dividend dates are when company shares stop trading with their current dividend payouts in preparation for those companies to announce new ones. 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. Typically, companies will announce and implement new dividend yields on a quarterly basis.

Shenandoah's Dividend Payouts And Yields

Over the past year, Shenandoah has seen its dividend payouts climb upward and its yields trend downward. Last year on November 2, 2016 the company's payout sat at $0.25, which has since increased by $0.09. Shenandoah's dividend yield last year was 0.98%, which has since decreased by 0.22%.
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.
