All correct regarding the definitions of the various important dates. What is missing from the definitions is that the record date is three days after the ex-dividend date because trades/transfers take three days to settle. The real question is whether a transfer settles differently from a sale.

Again, I wouldn't be satisfied until I had a citation to a specific rule or regulation. The internet is full of incomplete and/or misleading information.
