Stocks Going Ex Dividend the Third Week of September

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.





Best Buy Co., Inc. (BBY) 9/18/2017 0.34 2.12%

Will Despacito Save Puerto Rico and Puerto Rican Stocks?

If you don’t know what Despacito is, I will explain it in a minute. But first, lets talk about Puerto Rico. The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States. Back in 2015, Puerto Rico defaulted on $58 million in bond payments. Then things got worse with more defaults, and all these problems appear to be leading into quasi bankruptcy. By the way, Puerto Rico is Spanish for “Rich Port”.
Now for Despacito. This is a song by singer Luis Fonsi, and featuring rapper Daddy Yankee, both of whom are Puerto Rican. In early August, the Despacito music video became the most watched YouTube video, reaching over 3 billion views, and it became this leader in just over a half a year.
Amazingly, there has been a 45% increase in tourism to Puerto Rico attributed to DespacitoThis is for a song that is entirely in Spanish (but the YouTube video allows you to have subtitles in English, Japanese, and many other languages).
However, it may not just be the tourism that is helping the Puerto Rican economy. Many billionaires, millionaires, entrepreneurs, and businesses are moving to the Commonwealth, primarily due to the extremely favorable tax benefits, U. S. citizenship maintenance, low cost of living, fantastic weather, and beautiful beaches.
How does no Federal taxes and a 0% tax on dividends, interest, capital gains, and Puerto Rican source income sound? Peter Schiff, the CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, is one individual who is taking advantage of the benefits. During the first part of the following interview on the Joe Rogan Show, Schiff discusses the many benefits of living in Puerto Rico.
So maybe the government is in bad shape, but the economy appears to be improving. What is the best way for an investor to participate? There are over a half a dozen publicly traded companies based in Puerto Rico, most of which are banks.
For example, OFG Bancorp (OFG) trades at 8.2 times earnings and provides investors with a favorable yield of 2.7%. The stock is down 43% from where it was three years ago.
Popular Inc. (BPOP) has been around for almost 120 years. This bank holding company also operates in the virgin Islands and the United States, in addition to Puerto Rico. It has a price to earnings ratio of 10.4 and yields 2.0%. The stock is actually up 28% over the last three years.
Despacito means “slowly”, which may be a good description of the Puerto Rican economy recovery. Investing in Puerto Rican stocks may not be a quick turn-around; maybe plan on stock prices rising “despacito”.
