Investment Dictionary - Ex-dividend

The term used to refer to a stock no longer carrying the right to the next dividend payment because the settlement date occurs after the record date determining the holders who will receive the dividend. For example, if ABC common stock goes ex-dividend on April 1, an investor purchasing the stock on or after that date will not receive dividend cheque in the next period. A stock trading ex-dividend is traditionally indicated in stock trasaction tables by the symbol "x" in the volume column.
