Dividend Capture

A practice of buying stocks just for the sole purpose of collecting its dividend. A trader buys a stock just before the ex-dividend date and after the dividend is collected, the stock is sold. However, the stock should retain the trader's entry point for the tactic to work at its full extent. Should the price of the stock drop after the dividend is issued, the trader either breaks even or loses money.
