Dividend yield and ex date


I would think it’s available for online brokers somehow because Freetrade shared a mock-up of dividends paid out as shares.

Seems like BP has a scrip dividend programme.

I said that because I couldn’t figure how to do it in my Hargreaves Lansdowne account last time I looked (which was a few years ago)

I thought maybe you needed to have bought the shares direct from BP or whoever, maybe I’m wrong though


Rolls Royce pay their dividend in shares. But they don’t issue ordinary shares. They’re called C shares and can’t be traded like their other ones, so lumping them in with your other shareholding wouldn’t really make sense, unless you’re set up to automatically redeem them and buy ordinary shares with the proceeds.
