Monthly high yielding shares researched by "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Yields come down; the decay is full in process because of the growing stock prices. Dividend investors like me are seeking for higher yields at the market but the results getting rare.

My solution is to scout for lower yielding stocks with hope that the next dividend hike could lift the current yield above the 3 percent level. But it's more work to predict dividends and your risk increases when you have missed some details.

I always have a big picture of stocks that go ex-dividend in the near future in order to get quick cash back from my investments. Sure it's not a trading strategy because after the ex-dividend date, the stock is also traded lower in the amount of the dividend.

However, I screen every month some interesting high yielding stocks with ex-dividend date within the next month. As result, I found 41 stocks with an average dividend yield of 4.98 percent. Three stocks have a double-digit yield and ten a high yield. 18 stocks from the results have a buy or better recommendation.

Here are the results:
