Upcoming Ex-Dividend Dates for Dividend Achiever Watch List

Below are the approximate ex-dividend dates for companies that appeared on our Dividend Achiever watchlist dated February 12, 2010. If you happen to be researching these companies for potential investment it would be advisable to consider the ex-dividend date prior to possible purchases. Owning the shares of the company that you're interested in before the ex-dividend date entitles you to the upcoming dividend payment. Owning the shares on or after the ex-dividend date means that you would have to wait at least three months before receipt of the next payment.

Please verify the ex-dividend date and payout ratio before committing funds to these stocks. Additionally, do not base your next long or short term purchase on the dividend payment or yield. Instead, get as much research in as you possibly can before the ex-dividend date "just in case." - Art
