Could someone refresh my memory please?
Do I have to own shares for 45 days prior to their ex dividend date to qualify for the dividend?
Or if the exdividend date is in about 3 weeks but I am going to hold long term (2 yrs plus), will I still qualify for the dividend?
There is a share I want to buy soon, but I don't want to pay the cum dividend price without getting the dividend.

thanks in advance
