The Best-Yielding Ex-Dividend Stocks on Feb. 4, 2013
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

Buying stocks before the ex-dividend date is simple. If you buy a stock before the ex-dividend date and hold it, you will receive the next dividend. Buying high yielding stocks is not a one-way strategy to high returns.

In addition to high returns, the valuation should be fair. This is the main reason why I screen every day tomorrow’s best ex-dividend stocks by yield and market capitalization.

A full list of all stocks with payment dates can be found here: Ex-Dividend Stocks Feb. 4, 2013. In total, 22 stocks and preferred shares go ex dividend, of which 9 yield more than 3%. The average yield amounts to 4.27%.

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.
