High-yield investing is popular especially just before the next dividend payout. In order to receive the next dividend, investors must take a look at the ex-dividend date. If you own a share or fund before this day, you will receive the next dividend. I screened some interesting high-yielding stocks going ex-dividend within the next month – May 2012. As result, we found 72 stocks with an average dividend yield of 5.98%.
