65 Best Yielding Stocks With Ex-Dividend Date August 2012

High yield investing is popular especially just before the next dividend payout. In order to receive the next dividend, investors must take a look at the ex-dividend date. If you own a share or fund before this day, you will receive the next dividend. I screened interesting stocks with a high yield and ex-dividend date within the next month – August 2012. As a result, I discovered 65 stocks with an average dividend yield of 6.26 percent.
