Here is a current overview of the best yielding stocks with a market capitalization of over $2 billion that have their ex-dividend date on the next trading day. So if your broker settles your trade today, you will receive the next dividend. A full list of all stocks with ex-dividend date can be found here: Ex-Dividend Stocks on August 20, 2012. In total, 19 stocks and preferred shares go ex-dividend - of which 10 yield more than 3 percent. The average yield amounts to 5.07%.

The ex-dividend date is a major date related to the payment of dividends. If you purchase a stock on its ex-dividend date or later, you will not receive the next dividend payment.
