The Effect of the Ex-Dividend Date on the Stock Price


Shyam Kannan
Prof. Charles Boughton, Faculty Mentor

This presentation discusses the effect of the Ex-Dividend Date on a Stock’s price for that specific day. Typically, a stock’s price falls by the amount of the declared dividend on the ex-dividend date, but the goal of this study is to determine if the price drop actually occurs as often as assumed. The study analyzes historical dividend payments of six stocks that have consistently paid dividends. The presentation will also discuss how the price fluctuations on ex-dividend dates affect strategies such as dividend capturing and short selling.
