Stocks Going Ex Dividend in April 2019

by Fred Fuld III

The following is a short list of some of the many stocks going ex dividend during the next month.

Many traders and investors use the stock trading technique called ‘Buying Dividends,’ also commonly referred to as ‘Dividend Capture.’ This is the strategy 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 in bull markets and flat or choppy markets, but you need to avoid the strategy 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 many with yields over 2%. Here are a few examples showing the stock symbol, the ex-dividend date, the periodic dividend amount, and annual yield.

Like Dividend Stocks? Check Out the Aristocrats

by Fred Fuld III

Many investors prefer dividends. Yet, just because a stock pays a dividend does not make it a good stock. But if a company has been raising dividends, and raising them on a consistent basis, it probably means that the company has been doing something right.

A Dividend Aristocrat takes this concept to the extreme. It is a stock that has increased its dividend every year for at least the last 25 years.

One of the Aristocrat leaders is Proctor & Gamble (PG) which has increased its dividend over 61 years.

At 3.76%, the yield is fairly high, compared to a bank savings account, a certificate of deposit, or a money market fund.

Other well-known companies that fall into this elite category are the following:
Coca-Cola (KO) 55 years
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) 55 years
Lowe’s (LOW) 55 years
Colgate Palmolive (CL) 54 years
Target (TGT) 50 years
PepsiCo (PEP) 45 years

If you had bought any of these stocks ten or twenty or 30 years ago, and reinvested the dividends, your yield based on your original investment would be enormous.
