7 Stocks With Very High Yields (10+ percent) With Ex-Div. Date Next Week

High yield investing is very popular especially in times of low interest rates. The royal class of high yield investing is to trade stocks with very high yields (double digit yields). But the risks (e.g. dividend cut) are not to underestimate. For a margin trader it is still an attractive opportunity especially short-term before the next ex-dividend date. If you own a stock before this date, you get the next dividend payment. In the case of a double digit annual yield, you should earn at least 2.5 percent for a very short period of investing. I screened my database by stocks with a very high yield (more than 10 percent) as well as an ex-dividend date within the upcoming week (December 12 – 18). Exact 8 stocks fulfilled these criteria.
