68 Top-Yielding Stocks with Ex-Dividend Date in March 2013

Dividend investors like me hunt for the best yields and if they buy, they try to catch the next quarter dividend very fast. In order to receive the next dividend, it is necessary to 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 always have a big picture of stocks that go ex-dividend in the near future in order to get quick cash back from my investments. Sure it’s not a trading strategy because after the ex-dividend date, the stock is also traded lower in the amount of the dividend.

However, I screen every month some interesting high-yielding stocks with ex-dividend date within the next month. As result, I found 68 stocks with an average dividend yield of 6.60 percent. Seven stocks have a double-digit yield and 26 a high yield. Sixteen stocks from the results have a buy or better recommendation.
