In total, 17 stocks and preferred shares go ex-dividend of which 8 are yielding above 3 percent. The average yield amounts to 3.82 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.
