Explanation of XD (Ex-Dividend)
Some portion of the company’s earning is distributed among the shareholders. This portion is known as dividend. When a stock is trading ex-dividend, the current stockholder has received a recent dividend payment and whoever purchases the stock will not receive the dividend. The stock’s price should be lower as a result.
