A stock trades ex-dividend on or after the ex-dividend date (ex-date). At this point, the person who owns the security on the ex-dividend date will be awarded the payment, regardless of who currently holds the stock. After the ex-date has been declared, the stock will usually drop in price by the amount of the expected dividend.

Definition of 'Ex-Dividend'
A classification of trading shares when a declared dividend belongs to the seller rather than the buyer. A stock will be given ex-dividend status if a person has been confirmed by the company to receive the dividend payment.

XD means ex-dividend or without the dividend. The ex-dividend (XD) date is also called the ex-date. An investor must own a security by the record date set by the company in order to be entitled to receive the dividend it will pay. The XD date is the first day that a buyer can purchase a security and not be entitled to receive the dividend. A stock is said to go XD on the day the XD period begins. Once the company sets the date of record, the stock exchanges or the NASD fix the XD date. The XD date for stocks is normally set as the record date minus two business days. An investor purchasing a stock on or after its XD date will not receive the next dividend. Instead, the seller gets the dividend. If a buyer purchases before the XD date, the buyer will receive the dividend.

What does XD mean?

XD date means the market day immediately following the date on which the shareholders pass the resolution relating to the dividend distribution. If you buy the share on the XD date, you will not be entitled for the dividend. The seller will have the right for the dividend.
