Apple stock to go ex-dividend tomorrow

“The ex-dividend date for Apple (AAPL) is tomorrow, May 9, 2013,” TheStreet reports. “Owners of shares as of market close today will be eligible for a dividend of $3.05 per share. At a price of $458.99 as of 9:30 a.m. ET, the dividend yield is 2.6%.”

“TheStreet Ratings rates Apple as a buy,” TheStreet reports. “The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity.

  1. The Street is such a PITA (pain in the ass). They were right out there with all the naysayers, bad-mouthing AAPL instead of bad-mouthing the hedge funds and the short sellers. These so-called ANALyst sites really should be avoided at all costs until they earn trust.

    1. Wrong. The ex-dividend date is the first date on which owners of the stock will not receive the dividend. The record date (your settlement) is 5/13 and the payment (pay out) date is 5/16.

    1. Yes it is! Back at $700 they should have been proclaiming “outlook for further gains in share price are weak” instead of “company is doomed.” And today, instead of “great company!” they should be saying “at $464/share the prospect for future share price gains is quite good.”

      1. You nailed it when it comes to expressing Apple’s value fluctuations properly, however panic and extreme fear make things work a lot faster. I’m sure unwary investors will dump shares faster if there is constant chatter saying the company is doomed.
