Dividend stocks are wonderful because they increase my cash by regular payments. One major date in relation to the payment is the ex-dividend date. If you own a stock before this date, you get the next cash payment. This is very interesting because in the case of a high yield stock, I can earn at least one percent in cash for a short period of investing.

I screened stocks that have their ex-dividend date within the upcoming week. 191 common and preferred shares have their ex-dividend date between November 14 and November 20. Exactly 7 of them have a yield of more than 10 percent and 26 stocks yielding above 5 percent (high yield). Some of them have a high yield because the market believes that the dividend is not sustainable. Because of this small cap risk, I decided to select only those stocks with a market capitalization above $1 billion. These are the results sorted by dividend yield:
