Dividends

Dividends

We process your dividends automatically. Cash dividends will be credited as cash to your account by default, but not automatically reinvested in the stock.

You can view your received and scheduled dividends in your mobile app:

  1. Tap the Account icon in the bottom right corner.
  2. Tap History.
  3. Tap Filter.
  4. Tap Dividends.

If you have dividends that are scheduled but haven’t been paid yet, they’ll appear in the “Pending” category. You’ll find the scheduled date and amount listed next to the stock’s symbol. Recently-paid dividends are listed just below pending dividends, and you can click or tap on any listed dividend for more information.

In order to qualify for a company's dividend payment, you must have purchased shares of the company's stock before the ex-dividend date and hold them through the ex-dividend date.

You will not qualify for the dividend if you buy shares on the ex-dividend date or later, or if you sell your shares before the ex-dividend date.

Dividends that are paid in foreign currency will not display as pending, and only appear in History after your account has been credited. Keep in mind, dividends for foreign stocks take additional time to process. You'll most likely receive your dividend payment 2-3 business days after the official payment date.

If you don’t see a dividend, or if you have questions regarding the amount, please send us a note.

Reversed Dividends

Sometimes we may have to reverse a dividend after you have received payment. If this situation occurs, you will see the reversed dividend in the Dividends section of the app. You can click or tap on any reversed dividend for more information.

We describe some of the most common dividend reversal scenarios below.

Rate Update

If the rate was updated after payment was made to users, we will reverse the inaccurate dividend and repay using the correct rate. The correct dividend and payment will show up in the app as paid. These rate changes are determined by the issuer, not by Robinhood. Common reasons include:

  • The company amends the foreign tax rate.
  • The company amends foreign currency to USD/ FX rate.
  • The company amends the dividend rate(s).
  • The company amends one of the following critical dates: ex-date, record date, or payment date.

Complete Reversal

In another scenario, we may pay out a dividend that gets recalled and we need to reverse the dividend completely. The dividends may be recalled by the DTCC or by the issuing company. If this situation occurs, you will see the reversed dividend in the Dividends section of the app, as well as on your monthly account statement.

Dividend Reinvestment (DRIP)

Robinhood doesn’t currently support dividend reinvestment, but we may in the future. We’ll be sure to update you when this feature is available.

Investors should consider the investment objectives and unique risk profile of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) carefully before investing. ETFs are subject to risks similar to those of other diversified portfolios. Leveraged and Inverse ETFs may not be suitable for all investors and may increase exposure to volatility through the use of leverage, short sales of securities, derivatives and other complex investment strategies.
Although ETFs are designed to provide investment results that generally correspond to the performance of their respective underlying indices, they may not be able to exactly replicate the performance of the indices because of expenses and other factors. A prospectus contains this and other information about the ETF and should be read carefully before investing. Customers should obtain prospectuses from issuers and/or their third party agents who distribute and make prospectuses available for review. ETFs are required to distribute portfolio gains to shareholders at year end. These gains may be generated by portfolio rebalancing or the need to meet diversification requirements. ETF trading will also generate tax consequences. Additional regulatory guidance on Exchange Traded Products can be found by clicking here.
Options transactions may involve a high degree of risk. To learn more about the risks associated with options trading, please review the options disclosure document entitled Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options, available here or through https://www.theocc.com/about/publications/character-risks.jsp.

Investors should be aware that system response, execution price, speed, liquidity, market data, and account access times are affected by many factors, including market volatility, size and type of order, market conditions, system performance, and other factors.
All investments involve risk and the past performance of a security, or financial product does not guarantee future results or returns. There is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities, or other financial products. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing.
Trading in cryptocurrencies comes with significant risks, including volatile market price swings or flash crashes, market manipulation, and cybersecurity risks. In addition, cryptocurrency markets and exchanges are not regulated with the same controls or customer protections available in equity, option, futures, or foreign exchange investing. Several federal agencies have also published advisory documents surrounding the risks of virtual currency.
