Using the Stock Dividend Calendar "Part 1"

     There are several "FREE" stock dividend calendars on the web (do not PAY of one). The market chameleon is the one I use at the present time.
     A pop-up window will ask you to "sign-up", I just "X" out of every time it appears. I can use any of the features I need without signing up.
     Click the link above and the calendar will open on the present trading day. The screen shot is for November 8, 2019.


     These are the areas I will discuss in part 1.

1. Present trading date. Click on any of the days shown and it will move to that day.

2. Want to view a date not shown click on "view another date" and a pop-up calendar will appear for you to select any date you want.

3. "Dividends for symbol" box is where you can enter a stock symbol to find the dividend date.
I added WMT (WalMart) for demonstration purposes.
Great information on this page. You see what past dividends were payed (its increase or decrease), when an ANNOUNCED (sure thing) dividend will be payed, and PROJECTED (could be changed or canceled) dividend will be payed.

4. The "stock type" box lets you (if you have a preference) choose what stocks appear. 
For beginners "common stock" is what we all hear about. You can use this feature or not, the "stock type" will always appear on the information under this collum.  MLPs pay great dividends but can cause "tax issues" in some types of accounts on its dividend payouts, just stay away from them until you ask your tax adviser.
