Large-Cap Stocks Going Ex-Dividend Next Week-2019-12-05

By: ,

Income-seeking investors looking for equities to buy right now should consider looking for their potential picks among the nearly three dozen large-cap stocks going ex-dividend next week.

Large-cap stocks generally comprise most of the leading benchmark indices across global markets. For instance, companies must have capitalization in excess of $8 billion to qualify for inclusion in the S&P 500 index. Other major U.S. indices, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq Composite, have similar capitalization requirements. Since these large-cap stocks generally mirror the performance of the overall markets, Investors frequently choose these stocks to build the core of their investment portfolios.

Several characteristics make these large-cap stocks desirable as core portfolio building blocks. Generally, these are stocks of older and established companies that typically offer a high degree of transparency regarding their operations and financial results. This transparency allows investors easy access to information for stock analysis and evaluation.

As established companies with businesses that generate relatively reliable results, these companies can establish set dividend policies that have specific payout and growth commitments over the long term. Furthermore, as large and established companies, many of the large-cap companies generally have a portfolio of diversified businesses. This strategy allows these companies to take advantage of market growth across several sectors and weather downturns in one of the several markets in which the companies operate.

Sorted in ascending order by dividend yield and for investor’s immediate consideration, below are 35 stocks with market capitalizations of more than $10 billion that go ex-dividend next week. Therefore, interested investors who are looking to take advantage of the upcoming dividend distributions, should not delay their own analysis and due diligence.

While the equities below might deliver lower growth during bull markets, these stocks will also generally offer better protection in bear markets. The market capitalizations ranges between $10.11 billion for Comerica, Inc. (NYSE:CMA) to the high of more than $220 billion for Merck & Company, Inc. (NYSE:MRK). The average capitalization of the entire group is slightly below $40 billion.

The dividend yields range from 0.17% (Textron, Inc., NYSE:TXT) to 6.74% (The Williams Companies, Inc., NYSE:WMB), with a 2.3% simple average yield. The yields of the top 10 companies exceed 3% and average 4%. Eight stocks have not raised the dividend distribution in the past year. The remaining 27 equities boosted their annual dividend payout between one and 43 consecutive years for an average annual dividend boost streak just short of five years.
