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 quarterly dividend amount, and annual yield.








Ameren Corporation (AEE) 12/12/2017 0.458 2.81%
Guess?, Inc. (GES) 12/12/2017 0.225 5.64%

Exclusive Interview with Billionaire Money Manager Ken Fisher about the 10 Roads to Riches

The following informative interview was provided by Kenneth L. Fisher, founder and chairman of the money management firm Fisher Investments, former long time columnist for Forbes Magazine, billionaire on the Forbes 400 list, and author of numerous books. His latest book is The Ten Roads to Riches: The Ways the Wealthy Got There (And How You Can Too!) Second Edition, which I highly recommend. (It is my favorite of all his books, maybe because it is so different from all the other finance publications. Resources include websites and suggested books. It basically tells you ten ways, with all the steps, to get really rich, including “marrying a billionaire.” Lot’s of insight and lots of humor.)
You may have seen him on TV commercials, or you may have spotted his magazine ads. Fisher is on the Forbes 400 list of richest Americans and the Forbes world billionaires list. According to Investment Advisor magazine, he is one of the 30 most influential people in the investment advisory business over the last 30 years. Fisher is considered to be the largest wealth manager in the United States.
We cover a lot in this interview, including:
  • Whether or not we are still in a bull market
  • The various roads to success and the roads he has taken
  • What it takes to travel down Road #1 – Starting Your Own Business
  • Stock market outlook for the next year
  • Bitcoin & cryptocurrencies
  • Annuities
  • Does age make a difference for starting your own business
  • One piece of advice for someone who is just starting out with their own business
  • And much, much more
