Dividend payout and online brokerages

How long does it typically take for the dividend payout to show up in your online brokerage account? Specifically Questrade.

From my experience, it usually takes around 7 days. I don't know why it takes so much time.

Interesting to see that you still don't grasp in the slightest how the principle idea of div investing works.

With TD Direct Investing, it shows up the same morning it's paid out, at around 6 am ET

however, be aware, if you have DRIP, TD will buy shares next day using this amount.
I've made a mistake once by buying some shares with dividend money same day, then on the following day when TD decided to do DRIP for me, I had a negative balance because of that.

QT usually distribute dividends next day and do DRIP the same time

I've had the same experience - Next day as the account balance/transactions are usually 1 day behind.

HSBC it's next day for cash payouts, but stock splits can take a few days. :(

Questrade? Interesting... I just received ETF dividends from 03/24 (e.g. VEE.TO)

From what I gather through everyone's response, it should be next/near immediate. However, I had positions with XBAL, which had a div pay date of March 31st. When I logged in today, after the Carrytel outage yesterday, there's no clear way to tell that it's been deposited in my account.

I can see all account activity including dividend payouts by leaving the trading platform and going into account activities where you can filter out all the different forms of account activities (buy,sell,dividend,etc)

These commercials from Questrade have a whole new meaning. You get what you pay for

"We can't wait another year"
"This could be life changing"

Well, I think RobinHood in the U.S. is in the same boat. I don't have a lot of experience with all the brokerages to compare but so far my dealings with Questrade's customer support hasn't been satisfactory. They respond to you with very generic scripts that doesn't really answer anything.

Crazy to turn down the money or crazy that he was offered the money?

I wouldn't take the money. I'd rmake sure IIROC knew about all of it. Everything would be documented. Nothing ever gets better unless pushed.

for what he was offered! LOL i would never sign that NDA.

he was joking about revenge and saying how he'd do an eye for an eye kinda thing but worded it differently like burning down the Questrade building and then Questrade got police involved for threatening to burn down the building LOLLL. that thread is just so amazing and that dude is legendary.
