|Subject: Transferring stocks to a charity after ex div||Date: 1/2/2014 6:06 PM|

OK. Here's a weird situation.
ROIC went ex div on December 12.
I transferred ROIC shares to a charity on December 13.
The dividend was paid to the charity.
I called Schwab on this. They checked and verified that apparently the transfer date and not the ex date applies to share transfers. I guess the dividend accrues to the shares and not the owner of the shares, or something.
So my questions are:
2. If this is the case, do I get credit for donating the dividend as well as the shares?
