68 Top Dividend Stocks with Ex-Dividend Date in August 2013

Who doesn’t love to receive money from their investments? For sure it’s boring to get a 1% yield and wait over a decade to see the dividend grow to a yield on cost of 3%.

Isn’t it better when you start with a yield on cost of three percent or even five percent and see your dividend grow? In the end you will have a yield on your acquisition amount in the double-digit range.

Every month, I create a small list about interesting high yielding stocks with ex-dividend date for the next month. I think it could bring you some values to see what companies pay you cash next month with an attractive equity story.

As result, I found 68 stocks with an average dividend yield of 4.77 percent. Three stocks have a double-digit yield and 14 a high yield below 10%. Twenty-four stocks from the results have a buy or better recommendation.

Here are my favorite stocks:
