SP's usually fall by around the amount of the divi once they go ex-divi.

A lot of people buy shares from various companies a little before the ex-dividend date then sell them immediately afterwards. I think they can even set automated instructions to do this online. This is usually results in drops in the share after the ex-dividend date has past.
One of the financial websites was recommending RM shares as a long term buy the other day so maybe the future is looking a little brighter.

The RM share price nearly touched 230p just before the date then freefalled to 208p and appears to be continuing to fall.

It also coincided with Boris walking into Number 10, hopefully it'll start to rise again.

The dividend was 17p per share - so ex-dividend day, the share price falls (in theory) by 17p anyway......

Boris really isn't going to make any SP rise. Him and his buddy's ( who incidentally will be just fine, financially when he crashes us out of Europe with no deal, getting 50k a week for a newspaper column) are going to send the UK into recession.
He's trying to be trump, but he ain't running the USA , he's running little old Britain. Trump's recent beef deal with the EU is like putting two fingers up to the UK. People think we're going to have special deals for our special relationship? Think again. We will be out on a limb on our own , but hey that's what 'the country' wanted, right ? That so annoys me, a tiny majority. We should be having another say . He's messing with ordinary folks lives for his own gain and ego.

It was still a majority vote to leave simple as that. It's the same as I don't want Scotland to become independent but I know that's all the snp are obsessed over. And they were beaten and just like the remainers. We will be ok ourselfs, ok a bit rocky for a year or two but have a bit more faith in your country. :thumbup

I certainly don't have faith in the people that 'run' the country. If we crash out, we're heading for a recession with increased unemployment, inflation through the roof and it's not going to be pretty for your averaged joe. Can you afford higher interest rates on your mortgage, higher fuel bills, higher food bills, higher costs of going overseas on holiday? Have you seen the state of the country now, look around open your eyes, it's falling apart. The FTSE is tumbling ( that's our pensions btw) the £ is at two yr low. This is an indication of what the markets think to a no deal brexit. And it hasn't even happened. To those who say the economy is strong, I shake my head in disbelief. Those people need to open their eyes. Foreign labour prop this country up, do you really think joe benefit is gonna get off their ass on their outside couch on their 'estate' to pick fruit and work in the fields? No they're watching their big screen TV paid for by hard working people. Sorry to rant but if ego Borris gets his way it's gonna be grim. Especially up north.

All other things being equal, the share price of any company will drop by the value of the dividend, on the ex-dividend date. Buyers will not be willing pay the same price quoted the day before, when it included entitlement to the dividend.

The RM share price has broken free of the two quid mark and has risen to 224.30 . Bit of a surprise given that we have past the ex dividend date and the dividend has been paid out. Recently the financial press have started to say we are a long term buy so maybe the share price will continue on a steady rise. I guess they haven't been reading what we have and don't realize what is about to happen. Alternatively they think RM will get it's way and we are on the way out!
