In the course of the next week or 10 days we will add two new listings to the site.
1st for this weekend we will add a ‘Master List” of ex-dividend dates. This should be helpful to those who want to be apprised of ex-dividend dates–maybe for a dividend capture strategy. During the course of putting this together we found that good, timely and accurate data on ex-dividend dates is tough to come by and we have resorted to looking up each date individually, but we think we have a good plan to supply the data in an accurate way. We will present this “Master List” in a spreadsheet which readers can copy if they so desire, although if updates to the sheet are helpful one should simply have the original sheet in their google account so as we do weekly updates you will see the changes.
The 2nd listing we will do will be a ‘Master List‘ of all issues (baby bonds, preferreds etc) with investment grade ratings. I know some have desired such a list and right now we have ratings on just the CEF preferreds. It is likely this publication is 10 days away from now.
