Monologue Mania Day # 1581 Ex-Dividend Date by Janet S. Tiger (c) June  15, 2018         
                                        Ex-dividend Date
                                A monologue by Janet S. Tiger (c)  2018   all rights reserved 

        (Male actor -20s/30s- enters slowly, checking something on phone/laptop/electronic device that can be carried easily)

So many!  Which one to pick?

            (Looks up, surprised)

Oh, hello!  Sorry I'm late....but, you see,  I'm a little pre-occupied.....I need to make a choice - which one of these is the best......

          (Looks up)

Oh, yeah, I guess you're right, kind of like what we're doing....but......I mean, they all give dividends, so putting money in is not a bad idea.....but some of them, well, the ex-dividend date is close, others it's further away....


Sorry, I forgot, your profile said you didn't know much about stocks, I do appreciate you giving me a chance.......(listens)  yeah, I can explain.....well, when a stock pays a say,  AT&T, they pay it as of a certain if you own that stock on the day they declare that's called the declaration day......the ex-dividend date is the day you can sell the stock on the ex-dividend date and still keep the dividend!


I'm glad you understand it!  A lot of people don't, and I need a spouse who does because, well, I'm a broker, and it helps to have someone you can talk to, right?  By the way, what do you do?


What?  You do what?  You date...exes?  Is that a joke?  An ex-date?

          (Runs after the other person)

Where are you going?  I haven't had a chance to tell you about options!

         (Exits to learn about dating options in the real world)


Ex-dividend dates are explained if you click here

At this time, there is no real way to explain dates between human beings.
