Hello, my dears, welcome to a new overview of upcoming ex-dividend dates and dividend ideas. Like every week, I want to show you some stocks that will go ex-dividend in the next days. I’ll also review a few companies that are currently in the focus of investors or that have an attractive fundamental valuation. Additionally, I’ll give you some insights into my retirement portfolio and/or share my thoughts and experiences about individual companies with you.
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 the value of this section enormously, so it is worth it 🙂
Because I’ve been asked about it by some of the readers: I don’t, of course, decide my investments based on 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 the business development of companies more or less once a quarter and see if anything significant has changed in the companies. In the end, however, comprehensive due diligence always decides whether I invest or not.

Sad things first: No ex-dividend dates calendar next week
One announcement in advance: There will be no ex-dividend calendar on the TEV Blog next week. The blog goes on vacation. I also had to finish many projects in the last days, so there was hardly time for a longer article. I also had to finish many projects in the previous days, so there was barely time for a longer article. But that’s the way it is. The blog is supposed to remain a hobby, and sometimes you have time for a hobby and sometimes not 🙂
But the nice thing is that during this time, companies pay their dividends. While I sit back at the pool, money comes into my account. Great! After the vacations, I will resume my work on the blog full of enthusiasm and zest for action. But first, you will find a few words about an exciting company.
International Flavors & Fragrances
International Flavors & Fragrances, Givaudan, and other flavor manufacturers such as Symrise are among the products that hardly any consumer knows. Nevertheless, most of them have their products in the refrigerator or bathroom.
The company has recently underperformed somewhat. Givaudan and Symrise posted better results than International Flavors & Fragrances. While Symrise and Givaudan increased their revenue in the second quarter by 7 and 4 percent, respectively, International Flavors & Fragrances shrank by 4 percent, which was caused by the Fine Fragrances & Food Service segment, whose revenue declined by 38 percent year-on-year. Furthermore, the company is still digesting the USD 7.1 billion Frutarom acquisition.
The balance sheet is also solid with a debt (including all liabilities) to asset ratio of 50 percent.
Symrise, with a ratio of 58, and Givaudan, with a ratio of 70, are in a much more unfavorable position. In fundamental terms, the company is still overvalued a little bit. However, it has been consolidating for several years. Long-term investors may, therefore, find an opportunity to buy into the company in stages.
The dividend scoreboard also looks promising:
- Dividend Yield: 2.5%
- Years of Dividend Growth: 18 Years
- Payout ratio (pre-COVID-19) based on earnings: 53 percent
- Cash Payout ratio (pre-COVID-19): 68 percent
- 5 Year Dividend Growth Rate: 11 percent.
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. We also have a small but lovely group on Facebook that you can join. We share there only fundamental analyses of companies from various sources. So there is no spamming or anything like that.
