You need to own the shares on the Last Day To Trade (LDT) date. This will get you in the register and you will receive the dividend. You could then sell the share the very next day if you wanted.

Find out what this 27 year old trader did to turn R30,000 into R150,000 in 3 years!

He didn’t spend hours in front of a computer. In fact, he only traded 30 minutes a day.
