Dividend Delights: Exclusive Stock Alert Inside!

Dividend Delights: Your Exclusive Stock Alert!

Dear Valued Reader,

Brace yourself for an exciting dividend bonanza! In this week's edition, we're thrilled to bring you a curated selection of top dividend stocks with upcoming ex-dividend dates. Mark your calendars and get ready to optimize your portfolio for potential dividend gains.

Leading the pack is pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co. (MRK), with its robust portfolio of blockbuster drugs, including the cancer-fighting Keytruda. With an expected ex-dividend date of June 17th and a yield of 2.37%, this stock presents an enticing opportunity for income-seeking investors.

Next up is UnitedHealth Group (UNH), the diversified healthcare behemoth known for its comprehensive services spanning insurance, technology, and pharmaceuticals. Boasting a 1.70% dividend yield and an ex-dividend date of June 17th, UNH could be an excellent addition to your dividend portfolio.

Logistics real estate leader Prologis (PLD) also makes our list, offering a tempting 3.40% dividend yield. With its focus on high-barrier, high-growth markets, this REIT could be a solid income play, especially with its ex-dividend date coming up on June 17th.

For those seeking exposure to the energy sector, Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ) and DTE Energy (DTE) are worth considering. CNQ, with its diverse portfolio of crude oil, natural gas, and bitumen assets, offers a generous 5.23% dividend yield, while DTE, a regulated utility with a strong presence in Michigan, delivers a 3.62% yield. Both stocks go ex-dividend on June 17th.

Rounding out our list are Banco Macro (BMA), an Argentine banking giant with a 7.67% dividend yield, Lamar Advertising (LAMR), a leader in outdoor advertising with a 4.43% yield, and Unit Corporation (UNTC), an energy company offering a staggering 13.29% dividend yield. All three stocks have an ex-dividend date of June 17th.

Remember, purchasing a stock on or after its ex-dividend date means you won't receive the next dividend payment – the sellers will. To secure the dividend, ensure you buy before the ex-dividend date. Conversely, selling before this date forfeits your right to the stock's dividend.

As always, we recommend consulting with your financial advisor and conducting thorough research to align these opportunities with your investment goals and risk tolerance.

Stay tuned for more dividend insights and stock alerts in our upcoming newsletters. Until then, happy investing!

Warmest regards,
The Editor
