Here is a current overview of the best yielding stocks 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 Oct. 16, 2012. In total, four stocks and preferred shares go ex-dividend — of which one yields more than 3 percent. The average yield amounts to 3.07%.
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.
