  • Best Yields With Ex-Dividend Day Between December 09 - 15, 2013

    Weekly Ex-Dividend Dates and Yields by Ex-Dividend Dates. Here is a current stock and fund list of dividend stocks paying forthcoming dividends and having ex-dividend within the week December 9, 2012 - December 15, 2013. The average dividend-yield amounts to 4.65 percent.

    Best Yields With Ex-Dividend Day Between December 09 - 15, 2013...

    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.
