    Here is a current overview of the best yielding stocks with a market capitalization over $10 billion that have their ex-dividend date on the next trading week. 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 between December 24-30, 2012. In total, 144 stocks and preferred shares go ex-dividend - of which 79 yield more than 3 percent. The average yield amounts to 5.19%.

    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.
