Ex-Dividend Calendar April 12 to April 17 With Foot Locker, AbbVie and Activision Blizzard

Hello, my dears. Welcome to a new overview of upcoming ex-dividend dates and dividend ideas here on the TEV Blog ex-dividend calendar. Like every week, I want to show you some stocks that will go ex-dividend in the next days. This week, Foot Locker, AbbVie, and Activision Blizzard, among others, go ex-dividend.

Why yields are a simple way to screen companies

Dividends are a great thing. Even in bad stock market times, they provide a juicy cash flow per month. If you want to benefit from dividend payments as quickly as possible, you must pay attention to the ex-dividend dates. This date is the day on which shares are traded without their subsequent dividend value. Only if you owned the stocks on this day are you entitled to receive the dividend.

Usually, there are always exciting dividend companies that are worth a second look. And the dividend yield is an excellent way to get an initial overview of companies that may be worth further due diligence. To help you get started, at the end of each week, I will publish the ex-dividend dates for the coming week of individual companies here in the TEV blog.

Why I handpick and double-check the upcoming ex-dividend dates next week

I have recently noticed that many databases do not indicate the respective numbers and dates correctly. Spontaneous dividend cuts, in particular, are only partially taken into account, or in some cases, not at all. As a result, the value of such overviews dwindles enormously.

Therefore, I’ve decided to select individual companies by hand and check the dates and dividend yields on the companies’ websites, which means more work for me but increases this section’s value enormously, so it is worth it 🙂

Because I’ve been asked about it by some of the readers: I don’t decide my investments based on the question of whether a company goes ex-dividend or not. This overview is simply a way to screen companies regularly. By double-checking the current dividend yields, I scan companies’ business development more or less once a quarter and see if anything significant has changed. In the end, however, comprehensive due diligence always decides whether I invest or not.

One small change

In the future, I will publish the ex-dividend days as a separate article. For individual companies and thoughts about the week, I will simply publish stand-alone articles. That brings somewhat more overview since otherwise my “ex-dividend dates articles” were far too much stuffed.

This also allows me to publish the ex-dividend data a bit earlier, since I usually write the rest of the articles on weekends.

You will find more articles on the TEV Blog. 🙂

Time to do your due diligence

Has a company caught your interest? Attractive dividend yields should not be the only reason to buy shares of a company. Instead, you must carry out careful due diligence before every purchase. The Internet offers you excellent opportunities in this respect.

My analyses here on the TEV Blog are an excellent way to start (click here). You can also contact me here or ask the community in the comments if they can help with your due diligence.

Otherwise, I use tools like those from DividendStocks.Cash and Seeking Alpha to do further research. You can also find me and my analyses on these platforms.

If you don’t want to miss any new articles, you can easily follow me on


or Twitter.
