Welcome to TEV’s calendar of ex-dividend dates. 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.
Why yields are a simple way to screen companies
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 companies
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 company websites. This means more work for me but increases the value of this section enormously, so it is worth it 🙂

What’s interesting this week?
There are not many ex-dividend dates in the fourth week of June. Also, with my investments, this time, there is only one company, Deutsche Telekom, that goes ex-dividend.
Deutsche Telekom has recently produced some interesting news
There is speculation whether Deutsche Telekom will buy a large part of SoftBank’s shares in T-Mobile. After SoftBank speculated with some expensive investments in Tech Start-Ups (such as WeWork), the Japanese company urgently needs money. The company plans to sell shares in companies worth up to $41 billion. Almost $20 billion of this will be accounted for by T-Mobile shares. SoftBank currently holds 24 percent of T-Mobile and Deutsche Telekom 43 percent.
Deutsche Telekom has the majority of voting rights and a veto right if SoftBank sells the T-Mobile shares. For Deutsche Telekom, further acquisition of shares in T-Mobile would be tempting, but expensive. The company already has a debt ratio of over 70 percent, which, in my view, is too much, even for a capital-intensive telecommunications company.
Nevertheless, the company is very cheap from a fundamental perspective.
Some small talk: Emma Watson joins board of Kering
The actress Emma Watson was appointed to the board of the French fashion company Kering. I think Emma Watson is very intelligent because she has managed to rescue her fame from her childhood and youth role in the adult world. She is now a fashion icon and active for many charitable purposes.
Despite that, the luxury empire to which brands like Gucci, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, and Brioni belong is quite expensive. From a historical perspective, most multiples indicate a clear overvaluation.
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.
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.
