Ex dividend and dividend dates

Does anyone sell their stock the day after Ex dividend and then pick it back up on dividend day?

I am not a guru on the ins and outs of trading....I mostly go long haul investments.

But don't the exchanges drop the price of the stock automatically by the value of the dividend on the ex-div date?

Not to mention the cost associated with the buy and sell.

I usually look to buy right after the record date, since you typicaly do see a drop in price, but for DIV stocks I buy and hold.
