According to the Upcoming Special Dividends page, a Premium feature of GuruFocus, three stocks that have upcoming lump sum cash payments during the second quarter are Momo Inc. (MOMO, Financial), Richmond Mutual Bancorp Inc. (RMBI, Financial) and Goldman Sachs BDC Inc. (GSBD, Financial).
A special dividend represents a cash payment to shareholders that occur outside of a company's regular distribution schedule. Such dividend payments are generally larger than the routinely-paid dividend and are often tied to specific windfall events.
Several reasons why a company's board of directors may wish to declare a special dividend include exceptionally strong company earnings, asset sales, spinoffs or changes to a company's financial structure.
GuruFocus' Upcoming Special Dividends page includes columns like the dividend amount, current share price, ex-dividend date, record date and declaration date.
