Does the dividend amount have a direct effect on the price of a stock, and if so, how much and when?
Here are a couple of links that explain what happens at the exchange on ex-div day & what we witness in trading practice as the market goes live. In particular the first link is the ultimate answer to your question (please read rule 118). The second is a link to an article that I think will go some to clearing up for you what I have come to believe is the point you have been trying to make in this debate previously (on another board). I hope both are of help.
