My 3 Favorite High-Yielding Ex-Dividend Stocks for April and 45 Additional to Consider

Yields are getting low and they will stay at this level when companies don’t hike future dividends. For investors who live from dividend payments, like me, it’s very necessary to get a good yield for the money.

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 48 stocks with an average dividend yield of 5.20 percent. Five stocks have a double-digit yield and eight a high yield. Twenty stocks from the results have a buy or better recommendation.

Here are my favorite stocks:
