The price of the shares — all else being equal — will adjust to reflect the fact that investors who buy on this date or later won't receive the payment.
In effect, you get to buy the shares at a discount as compensation for not receiving the next dividend. In a similar vein, buying the stock the day before the ex-dividend date doesn't make you any better off; you get the dividend, but the stock will cost you more than if you'd waited until the next day — again, all else being equal. Now, it's important to understand that when a stock goes ex-dividend its price doesn't necessarily fall by the exact value of the dividend.
In fact, the stock could even rise, because prices are subject to all sorts of forces on any given day. Crescent Point's monthly dividend is 23 cents, but on the ex-dividend date the stock fell by 41 cents. Now to the question of why you didn't receive the dividend.
At first glance, it seems as if you should have. After all, you placed your order on May 28, three days before the record date of May But if you check the calendar, you'll see that May 31 was a Saturday — a non-business day.
As a result, the trade you placed on May 28, a Wednesday, didn't settle until three business days later on Monday, June 2 — after the record date had already passed. You would have had to purchase the stock on May 27 to get the dividend; you placed your order on May 28, which was the ex-dividend date. It's worth repeating that buying before the ex-dividend date doesn't make you richer, and buying on or after the ex-dividend date doesn't make you poorer.
If that were the case, everyone would buy stocks just in time to pocket the dividend, then quickly sell them and move on to the next opportunity. Unfortunately, no such free lunch exists. Still, it's important to understand the various dividend dates to save yourself from unnecessary stress when a dividend you thought you had coming doesn't arrive.
