Stocks Going Ex Dividend the Second Week of December

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 dividend amount, and yield.


Ameren Corporation (AEE) 12/5/2016 0.44 3.5%
Avery Dennison Corporation (AVY) 12/5/2019 0.41 2.3%

Top Infrastructure Stocks Under Trump Administration

When you filter through all the news about Donald Trump and his upcoming policies, one of the proposals that stands out is his plan to spend a trillion dollars on infrastructure.
So what is infrastructure? Infrastructure includes such things as roads, bridges, tunnels, dams, water pipes, and sewers. The companies that should benefit are those that build, repair, and provide the materials and equipment for infrastructure.
In terms of what stocks may benefit, there are many to choose from. We have compiled a list of over 20 stocks involved in the infrastructure industry. Here are a few that stand out.
Granite Construction (GVA) produces construction materials for the repair of highways, airports, and other types of infrastructure. The stock trades at 28 times forward earnings, and earnings for the latest reported quarter went from 77 cents per share to 92 cents per share, an increase of over 19%. The stock currently pays a yield of 0.85%.

Martin Marietta Materials (MLM) is a producer of granite, limestone, sand, and gravel, which are critical products used in infrastructure repair. The stock has a forward price to earnings ratio of 23.7, and a small yield of  0.8%. Earnings increased by 43% for the latest quarter, year-over-year.

Vulcan Materials Company (VMC) is another infrastructure materials producer, providing concrete, sand and gravel for these projects. The forward P/E is 29.1 and the yield is 0.6%.
