  • The Biggest Ex-Dividend Shares For August 29, 2013 0 comments

    Buying stocks before the ex-dividend date is simple. If you buy a stock before the ex-dividend date and hold them, you will receive the next dividend. Buying high yielding stocks is not a one way strategy to high returns.

    In addition to high returns, the valuation should be fair. This is the main reason why I screen every day tomorrow's best ex-dividend stocks by yield and market capitalization.

    In total, 64 stocks go ex dividend - of which 18 yield more than 3 percent. The average yield amounts to 3.69%. Here is a full list of all stocks with ex-dividend date within the upcoming week.

    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. Instead, the seller gets the dividend. If you purchase before the ex-dividend date, you get the dividend. It is important that your broker settles your trade before the ex-dividend date.

    These are the results of the highest yielding ex-dividend stocks:
