Here is a current overview of best yielding stocks with a market capitalization over USD300 million that have their ex-dividend date on the next trading day. If your broker settles your trade today, you will receive the next dividend. A full list of all stocks with ex-dividend date can be found here: Ex-Dividend Stocks March 30, 2012. In total, seven stocks and preferred shares go ex-dividend of which four are yielding above three percent. The average yield amounts to 3.78 percent.

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.
