1) Some sites show an ex-dividend date. Other sites show a date next to the actual dividend. I assume that date is the ex-dividend date, correct?

2) If you buy a stock on the ex-dividend date, have you bought the dividend?

3) When are dividends paid? Is it different for every stock? Do bonds or bond funds have regular payments?
