Ex-Dividend Share

A share in a stock sold after a dividend has been announced but before it has been distributed. When a security is sold ex-dividend, the dividend remains with the seller. Selling ex-dividend almost invariably reduces the price for which the security is sold by the amount of the dividend. See also: Cum dividend, Ex-dividend date.
