This morning, a β€œPotential Dividend Run Alert” was issued for Autoliv Inc (NYSE: ALV) via our DividendChannel.com Dividend Alerts service. Let’s delve into the situation with a keen eye for detail, shall we?

Understanding the Concept of Dividend Run

Let’s start by unraveling the intriguing notion of a β€œDividend Run,” a concept that came to light during a ValueForum conference. The ex-dividend date signifies the crucial trading day when a stock buyer is no longer eligible for the stated dividend. Naturally, the stock price is anticipated to decline by the dividend amount on the ex-date, given all else remains constant. If the stock did not exhibit this drop, buyers would effectively be paying more for the shares post-ex-dividend date, which is illogical.

Considering this, wouldn’t it make sense for a stock to rise before a dividend payment? Continual earnings and dividend payouts by a company suggest that there should be a predisposition for the stock to gradually ascend in anticipation of the upcoming cash dividend β€” a phenomenon referred to as a potential Dividend Run.

Timing and Strategies of Dividend Run

Investors employ various strategies to leverage Dividend Runs, from specific target dates to dollar-cost averaging. Some opt to purchase shares before the ex-dividend date, hold through the dividend payment, and sell post-ex-date to capture the dividend and potential capital gains. Others choose to sell just before the ex-date to maximize capital gain. A common timeframe is purchasing approximately two weeks before the targeted sale date.

For instance, with ALV’s 0.68/share dividend going ex-dividend on 11/27/23, buying two weeks prior would have yielded a capital gain of 7.83. Reflecting on the last four dividends from ALV, this strategy outperformed the dividend total three out of four times, accumulating a β€œDivvy Run” total of +15.08 in capital gains, exceeding the cumulative dividend amount of 2.66 for those dividends.

Assessing the Future Dividend Prospects

In about two weeks, ALV will go ex-dividend for its upcoming dividend of 0.68/share. The past performance in Dividend Runs is not a guarantee of future outcomes. However, for investors leveraging Dividend Runs, ALV’s implied annualized yield of 2.42% positions it as a favorable dividend stock to monitor and consider.
