  • The 5 Best Dividends On September 21, 2012 0 comments

    Here is a current overview of the best yielding stocks with a market capitalization over $1 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 September 21, 2012. In total, 7 stocks and preferred shares go ex-dividend - of which 4 yield more than 3 percent. The average yield amounts to 3.24%.

    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 best yielding, higher capitalized stocks:

    Pembina Pipeline (NYSE:PBA) has a market capitalization of $8.25 billion and operates within the Oil & Gas Pipelines industry. These are the market ratios of the company: P/E Ratio: 29.16, Forward P/E Ratio: 32.11, P/S Ratio: 3.78, P/B Ratio: 1.87, Dividend Yield: 5.72%.

    Portland General Electric (NYSE:POR) has a market capitalization of $2.06 billion and operates within the Electric Utilities industry. These are the market ratios of the company: P/E Ratio: 15.69, Forward P/E Ratio: 14.15, P/S Ratio: 1.14, P/B Ratio: 1.21, Dividend Yield: 3.96%.

    Iron Mountain (NYSE:IRM) has a market capitalization of $5.78 billion and operates within the Business Software & Services industry. These are the market ratios of the company: P/E Ratio: 32.05, Forward P/E Ratio: 23.05, P/S Ratio: 1.92, P/B Ratio: 4.66, Dividend Yield: 3.21%.

    Royal Caribbean Cruises (NYSE:RCL) has a market capitalization of $6.81 billion and operates within the Resorts & Casinos industry. These are the market ratios of the company: P/E Ratio: 14.27, Forward P/E Ratio: 12.81, P/S Ratio: 0.88, P/B Ratio: 0.82, Dividend Yield: 1.54%.
