Understanding Grupo Aval Acciones's Ex-Dividend Date

On September 24, 2020, Grupo Aval Acciones AVAL announced shareholders can expect to receive a dividend payable on March 9, 2021.

The company's current dividend payout sits at $0.03. That equates to a dividend yield of 6.77% at current price levels.

The Significance Of An Ex-Dividend Date

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.
