- Forum: AAPL Investors
The article isn't wrong. It also isn't offering buying advice on securities. It is detailing Apple's dividend payments. "May 14, Apple will pay shareholders of record a quarterly dividend of $0.52 per share, but investors must have settled ownership of the company's stock by Monday, May 11, in order to qualify." To have settled ownership by Monday, you'd need to have purchased the shares Thursday May 7.
