Get Cash: Stocks with Very High Yields and Ex-Div. Date This Week

For a margin trader it is an attractive opportunity to watch stocks with upcoming ex-dividend dates. 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) that have their ex-dividend date within the upcoming week (December 19 – 25). Exactly 10 stocks fulfilled these criteria. These are the results:
