Stocks Going Ex Dividend in January 2018

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.

Stocks that Bill Gates Has Been Buying Recently

Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft (MSFT), is the wealthiest man in the world, although Amazon’s (AMZN) Jeff Bezos, has been gaining on him recently. You may or may not be aware, but Bill Gates has his own hedge fund, called Cascade Investments.

By looking at some of the recent trades of this billionaire, you may get some ideas for your own portfolio.

Gates recently bought the following stocks during the last quarter of 2016:

Williams Sonoma (WSM)

Scripps Networks Interactive (SNI)

Corelogic (CLGX)

Zebra Technologies (ZBRA)

Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL)

Apple Hospitality REIT (APLE)

Ryder System (R)

Super Micro Computer (SMCI)

Digital Realty Trust (DLR)

You will notice that many of these stocks are not well-known companies. For example, Zebra Technologies makes and markets various types of tech  products including mobile computers, barcode scanners, and RFID readers. The stock trades at 13 times forward earnings and earnings per share for the latest reported quarter jumped from a loss of 54 cents per share to a profit of 34 cents per share, year-over-year.

Super Micro Computer is a provider of high performance server technology. The forward price to earnings ratio is a favorable 11.7. For the latest quarter, revenues rose but earnings dropped.

Hopefully, some of these stocks can help turn you into a billionaire.
