Stocks Going Ex Dividend the First Week of October

Here is our latest update on the stock trading technique called ‘Buying Dividends,’ also commonly referred to as ‘Dividend Capture.’ This is the process of buying stocks before the ex dividend date and selling the stock shortly after the ex date at about the same price, yet still being entitled to the dividend.

This technique generally works only in bull markets, and can work in flat or choppy markets, but you need to avoid the technique during bear markets. In order to be entitled to the dividend, you have to buy the stock before the ex-dividend date, and you can’t sell the stock until after the ex date.

The actual dividend may not be paid for another few weeks. WallStreetNewsNetwork.com has compiled a downloadable and sortable list of the stocks going ex dividend in the near future. The list contains many dividend paying companies, lots with market caps over $500 million, and yields over 2%. Here are a few examples showing the stock symbol, the ex-dividend date, the quarterly dividend amount, and annual yield.

Agilent Technologies, Inc. (A) 10/02/17 0.132 0.80%
Comcast Corporation (CMCSA) 10/3/2017 0.157 1.56%
Gap, Inc. (GPS) 10/3/2017 0.23 3.14%
Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) 10/4/2017 0.29 3.26%
American Express Company (AXP) 10/5/2017 0.35 1.44%
Barnes & Noble, Inc. (BKS) 10/5/2017 0.15 7.79%

If you like dividend stocks, you should check out some of the other high yield stock lists at WallStreetNewsNetwork.com or WStNN.com. Most of the lists are free.

Dividend definitions: Declaration date: the day that the company declares that there is going to be an upcoming dividend.

Ex-dividend date: the day on which if you buy the stock, you would not be entitled to that particular dividend; or the first day on which a shareholder can sell the shares and still be entitled to the dividend.

Monthly Dividend Stock List

Record date: the day when you must be on the company’s books as a shareholder to receive the dividend. The ex-dividend date is normally set for stocks at two business days before the record date.

Payment date: the day on which the dividend payment is actually made, which can be as long at two months after the ex date.

Don’t forget to reconfirm the ex-dividend date with the company before implementing this technique.

Eminem Catalog Launches 1st Music Royalty IPO

ROYALTY EXCHANGE TO LAUNCH IPO OF ROYALTY FLOW, AND ITS ICONIC MUSIC ROYALTY CATALOG

First is royalties in the producer’s share of hip-hop superstar EMINEM

DENVER (Sept. 25, 2017)—Royalty Flow, Inc. (“Royalty Flow”), a subsidiary of Royalty Exchange, the premier online marketplace for music and media royalties, today filed to offer its shares to the public under Title IV of the 2012 JumpStart Our Business Start-up (JOBS) Act, known as “Regulation A+”, paving the way for individuals to invest in iconic music royalties.

Royalty Flow intends to acquire and hold royalties from music catalogs of the world’s biggest music artists. The first of these iconic music catalogs will be the production company’s master sound recording royalties from the 1999-2013 recording catalog of hip-hop superstar EMINEM.

Royalty Exchange is working with the Detroit producers who first signed EMINEM, Jeff and Mark Bass—co-founders of “Funky Bass Team” (FBT) Productions—with their manager Joel Martin, to bring this opportunity to fans and investors alike.

To make this possible, Royalty Exchange created Royalty Flow, a one-of-a-kind company designed to acquire and hold royalty catalogs of music and other media.

Individual and institutional investors can buy shares of Royalty Flow—and with it share in the previously privately owned royalty catalog it holds—through an equity offering the company filed for today. Royalty Flow targets raising between $11 and $25 million.

Royalty Flow’s Regulation A+ offering will begin after the SEC qualifies the filing, expected sometime in October. Minimum buy-in is expected to be $2,250 for 150 shares ($15 per share). Following this “mini IPO,” Royalty Flow intends to list on a public stock exchange, where anyone can buy and trade shares and be eligible to collect dividends from the EMINEM royalties, as well as other world-class royalty assets as they are added.

“Royalty Flow gives investors the opportunity to participate in assets that are uncorrelated with public markets, and directly benefit in the music industry’s growth,” said Matthew Smith, CEO Royalty Exchange and Royalty Flow’s Chairman. “It also gives thousands of artists, producers, labels, songwriters, publishers, and other rightsholders who contribute to the success of the superstars they work with access to on-demand financing options with the kind of flexibility seldom found in the music industry.”

The Bass brothers and FBT own producer credits and additional royalties on all EMINEM recordings and releases from 1999 – 2013. They are making up to 25% of their master sound recording royalties in the EMINEM recording catalog available to investors through Royalty Flow.

This includes all EMINEM albums released in that timeframe (such as the diamond-certified The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show) as well as other EMINEM projects, contributions, and recordings.

With more than 172 million albums sold in his career, EMINEM is the second best-selling male artist of the last 25 years. Four of his albums remain on the Billboard 200 today, three are among the top 20 longest-charting albums of all time, and one—Curtain Call—was recently named the longest-charting hip-hop album in history.

The Bass brothers and Martin are groundbreaking champions for artists’ digital rights. They successfully fought for higher royalty payments for digital downloads and streaming, and  won a landmark legal victory with an award of a substantially higher rate than paid to most producers or artists.

“We believe Royalty Exchange is the new model for music financing,” said their manager, Joel Martin. “We’ve supported increased transparency for artists our entire career, and Royalty Exchange is no different. They give investors simple, direct access to royalty opportunities that previously were available only to industry insiders. This changes everything.”

About FBT/Bass Brothers

The Bass brothers, and their company FBT Productions, is the production team made up of Mark and Jeff Bass. Both are exceptional musicians, but their true talents lie in producing, working with the likes of Quincy Jones, George Clinton, D-12 and, of course, Eminem. After discovering and signing Eminem in 1995, the Bass brothers developed his signature musical style, producing and/or co-writing more Eminem tracks than any other producer on his most successful albums. This relationship garnered not only multiple Grammy awards, but also the Academy Award in 2003 for Best Original Song, “Lose Yourself.” For more background, see:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGIy1Y2CfCo
