If you own Rio Tinto Ltd (ASX: RIO) shares, then here are a few dates to add to your diary if you want to stay informed.

Full-year results

The first date to make note of is its upcoming full-year results release.

Rio Tinto will be handing down its report card on 21 February 2024. With iron ore prices trading at stronger-than-expected levels in recent months, a solid result could be on the cards.

When the company releases its results, it will also declare a final dividend for FY 2023. If you want to receive this dividend, you will need to own Rio Tinto shares before they trade ex-dividend for this on 7 March.

After which, a little over a month later on 18 April, the mining giant will be paying it to shareholders.

What's next for Rio Tinto shares?

The next date for your diary is 31 July, which is the day that Rio Tinto will release its interim results for FY 2024.

As with its full-year results, a dividend is likely to be declared on this day. To be eligible to receive this dividend you will need to own its shares before they go ex-dividend on 15 August.

This interim dividend will then be paid to shareholders the following month on 26 September.

Other dates of note

A couple more dates for your diary are 4 April and 2 May. The former is the day that UK shareholders will congregate for their annual general meeting.

Whereas the latter is the date of the mining giant's annual general meeting in Australia.

So far in 2023, Rio Tinto's shares have delivered a return of over 7% before dividends. Here's hoping 2024 will be equally successful for investors.
