BLancaster:
To nitpick, true as long as you bought BEFORE the ex date and not ON the ex date.

To nitpick a little further, true for each share that you bought before the ex-date AND that you didn't SELL before the ex-date. Even selling at the 8pm close of the after-hours trading session on the entitlement date (the term for the day before the ex-date, also knows as a cum-dividend date) will disentitle you to the dividend.
