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. 96 common and preferred shares have their ex-dividend date between July 02 and July 08. Exactly 17 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 low capitalized stocks or stocks with very high yields over 10%, the possibility of a dividend cut is much higher as for stocks with a higher capitalization at normal yields. Because of this, I decided to select only those stocks with a market capitalization over $40 million and a dividend yield below 10%. These are the results sorted by dividend yield:
