In addition to high returns, the valuation should be fair. This is the main reason why I screen every day tomorrow’s best ex-dividend stocks by yield and market capitalization.
A full list of all stocks with payment dates can be found here: Ex-Dividend Stocks March 22, 2013. In total, 2 stocks and preferred shares go ex dividend - of which one yield more than 3 percent. The average yield amounts to 3.83%.
The ex-dividend date is a major date related to the payment of dividends. If you purchase a stock on its ex-dividend date or later, you will not receive the next dividend payment. Instead, the seller gets the dividend. If you purchase before the ex-dividend date, you get the dividend. It is important that your broker settles your trade before the ex-dividend date.
