Stocks Going Ex-Dividend In February 2019

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%.
