81 Top Yield Stocks With Ex-Dividend Date December 2012

 November 29, 2012 05:27 PM
 


High yield investing is popular especially just before the next dividend payout. In order to receive the next dividend, investors must take a look at the ex-dividend date. If you own a share or fund before this day, you will receive the next dividend. I screened interesting high yielding stocks going ex-dividend within the next month – December 2012. As result, we found 81 stocks with an average dividend yield of 6.51 percent. Twelve stocks have a double-digit yield and forty a buy or better recommendation.

Below the results are fifty-one stocks with a market capitalization under USD 2 billion. They have definitely a higher risk. My favorites have a much higher capitalization.

Here are my favorite stocks:
