11 High Yield Stocks Going Ex-Dividend This Week

Dividend stocks are wonderful because they increase my cash with regular payments. One major date in relation to the payment is the ex-dividend date. If you own a stock before this date, you get the next payment. This is very interesting because in the case of a high yield stock, I can earn at least one percent in cash for a short period of investing.

I screened stocks with ex-dividend date within the upcoming week.144 common and preferred shares have their ex-dividend date between January 30 and February 05. Exactly 3 of them yielding above 10 percent and 38 have a yield of more than 5 percent but less than 10 percent. Many of them have a high yield because the market believes that the dividend is not sustainable. Especially in the case of low capitalized stocks, the possibility of a dividend cut is much higher as for stocks with a higher capitalization. Because of this, I decided to select only those stocks with a market capitalization above $2 billion. Finally, the current P/E ratio should be under 20. These are the results sorted by dividend yield:
