If you're a dividend investor looking to maximizing your income, there's one date in particular that you should be aware of before you buy your next dividend stock: the stock's ex-dividend date. Buy a stock before it goes ex-dividend, and you'll collect its next payout. Buy a stock on or after its ex-dividend date, and you won't get its next payout. This may not be a big deal to long-term investors, but if you’re looking to maximize your income, and you’re relying on dividends to do that, then it’s ideal to collect as many payouts from an investment than you can. The difference of buying just one day later could cause you to miss a payout, and if it’s a stock that pays every quarter — then you may have to wait at least another 3 months to collect your first dividend.
With this in mind, in today's video, I’ll show you my personal "Ex-Dividend Calendar" for February 2021, and show you how I use it to help maximize my dividend income. I’ll also show you how you can benefit from something like this as well, including six dividend stocks to consider buying this month. In short, these are high-quality dividend growth stocks that appear to be trading at discounts… and they all go ex-dividend this month. So if you want to get in on their next payout, then you’ll want to buy shares before the dates I show you in today’s video.
