Dividend stocks are wonderful because they increase my cash with 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 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 with ex-dividend date within the upcoming week. 93 common and preferred shares have their ex-dividend date between April 09 and April 15. Exactly 12 of them have a dividend yield above 5%. Many of them have a high yield because the market believes that the dividend is not sustainable. Especially in the case of very high yielding stocks (more than 10%), the possibility of a dividend cut is much higher as for stocks with a lower yield. Because of this, I decided to select only those stocks with a dividend yield below 10%. These are the results sorted by dividend yield:
