Lesson 9. How to earn money from dividends

One of the key ways to make a profit when trading in investment accounts is to take advantage of when dividends are paid out. Dividends are a company's profits that are distributed to shareholders. This usually happens after the company's quarterly report is released. Dividends are paid out according to dedicated calendars that indicate dividend payment dates.

Lesson 9

To make money on dividends, find a trading instrument in the calendar and open a buy position no later than a day before the ex-dividend payment. By buying an instrument, you become an investor in the company's shares and become eligible to receive a dividend payment on the payment date when you are "recorded" as being a shareholder.

Lesson 9

You must keep the position open through the record date to receive the dividend payment.
