ICICIdirect.com has come out with its report on dividend yield stocks - July 2011. The research firm has mentioned that if the market remains volatile, going ahead, an investor can still get a decent return on investment.

High dividend yield stocks offer a safe haven to investors where safety has greater priority compared to high returns. Hence, even if the market remains volatile, going ahead, an investor can still get a decent return on investment, thanks to good dividend yielding stocks. The dividends are paid no matter what direction the stocks move and can provide a higher yield on investment in a weak market.

There are four basic dates associated with the dividend declaration and payment

1. Dividend Declaration date: This is the date on which the board of directors announces to shareholders the quantum of dividend that will be paid by the company.

2. Ex-dividend date - On (or after) this date the security trades without its dividend. If an investor buys a dividend paying stock one day before the ex-dividend he/she will still get the dividend but if the stock is bought on the ex-dividend date, the investor will not get the dividend.

3. Record date - This is the date on which the company looks at its records to see who the shareholders of the company are. An investor must be listed as a shareholder to ensure the right of a dividend payout.

4. Dividend payable date - This is the date when the company mails the cheques for the dividend amount due to the shareholders who appear on the register of shareholders.
