Large-Cap Stocks Going Ex-Dividend Next Week-2020-03-26

Large-Cap Stocks

Income investors seeking equities to buy right now should consider one of more than two-dozen large-cap stocks going ex-dividend next week.

Several characteristics make large-cap stocks desirable as core portfolio building blocks. Generally stocks of older and established companies, these equities typically offer a high degree of operational and financial transparency. 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 27 stocks with market capitalizations of more than $10 billion that go ex-dividend next week. Most of these equities have also boosted their annual dividend payout at least the last five consecutive years. Therefore, interested investors who are looking to take advantage of the upcoming dividend distributions should not delay their own analysis and due diligence.

The market capitalizations range between $10.2 billion for Sun Communities, Inc (NYSE:SUI) to the high of nearly $282 billion JPMorgan Chase & Company (NYSE:JPM). The average capitalization of the entire group is nearly $42 billion. The dividend yields range from 2.08% (Smith & Nephew Plc, (NYSE:SNN) to 11.6% (Ventas, Inc., (NYSE:VTR)), with a 3.7% simple average yield.

Four companies on the list below – Smith & Nephew Plc (NYSE:SNN), Keurig Dr Pepper, Inc (NYSE:KDP), ABB Ltd (NYSE:ABB) and Western Digital Corporation (NASDAQ:WDC) – have not boosted their dividends in the past 12 months. Unfortunately, the current economic slump might push additional companies to cut or suspend their dividends. As of now, the other equities on the list below have boosted their annual dividend payouts between one and 43 consecutive years for an average current streak of more than nine years of consecutive annual dividend hikes.

Because of the current market decline, only three companies on the list below – Air Products & Chemicals, Inc. (NYSE:APD), Illinois Tool Works, Inc. (NYSE:ITW) and Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE:BMY) – currently still have small positive total returns over the trailing 12 months. However, most of these stocks have delivered strong returns over the last three and five years and should return to offering positive return as the markets recover. Below are the 27 large-cap stocks that are going ex-dividend next week sorted in ascending order by their current dividend yield.
