81 Top-Yield Stocks with Ex-Dividend Date December 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 high-yielding stocks going ex-dividend within the next month – December 2012. As result, we found 81 stocks with an average dividend yield of 6.51 percent. Twelve stocks have a double-digit yield and forty a buy or better recommendation.

Below the results are 51 stocks with a market capitalization under USD2 billion. They definitely have a higher risk. My favorites have a much higher capitalization.
