NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The following stocks go ex-dividend Friday, meaning an investor must purchase the shares Thursday to qualify for the next dividend payment: Aegon (AEG - Get Report) and Solera Holdings (SLH - Get Report).
The life insurance company reported on May 10 first-quarter net income of €521 million, up from year-earlier net income of €327 million.
"AEGON shares are attractively valued in our view," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a report Monday. "The shares trade at just 6.5x P/E'13, almost a 10% discount compared with the sector. We expect AEGON to show a strong recovery in earnings over the next three years as a result of cost savings, and a shift in business mix. This is estimated to result in an improving ROE, which in our view is a key trigger for the shares, trading at just 0.3x P/V."Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.4%
