Friday marks the last chance for investors to receive the next dividend payout from American Water Works AWK.
The company announced on Wednesday that it would pay shareholders a quarterly dividend of 65.5 per share. On Monday, American Water Works will go ex-dividend, meaning the stock will trade lower to reflect that payout. In other words, the stock will likely open 65.5 lower than it would have opened on any other day.
In order to be eligible to receive a company's dividend, shareholders must own the stock prior to the ex-dividend date—in this case, Monday. Shareholders who own AWK as of the end of Friday's session are eligible to receive the 65.5 dividend payout for every share that they own.
According to the company, this dividend will be paid out to shareholders on September 01, 2022. Investors will then be able to either reinvest those dividends back into the stock or use the payment in some other way.
