Best Ex-Dividend Stock List for Nov. 21, 2012
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

Dividend Investors should have a quiet overview of stocks with upcoming ex dividend dates. The ex dividend date is the final date on which the new stock buyer couldn’t receive the next dividend. If you like to receive the dividend, you need to buy the stock before the ex dividend date. I made a little screen of the best-yielding stocks with a higher capitalization that have their ex date on the next trading day.

A full list of all stocks with ex-dividend date can be found here: Ex-Dividend Stocks on Nov. 21, 2012. In total, eight stocks and preferred shares go ex dividend, of which three yield more than 3 percent. The average yield amounts to 3.39%. If you like to receive the next dividend you need to buy the dividend stocks now.

Here is the sheet of the best yielding ex-dividend stocks:
