43 Top Yielding Stocks With Ex-Dividend Date In October 2012

Monthly High Yield Shares Researched By “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. 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 high yielding stocks going ex-dividend within the next month – October 2012. As result, we found 43 stocks with an average dividend yield of 5.19 percent. Five stocks have a double-digit yield and twenty-one a buy or better recommendation.
