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: Gap (GPS - Get Report), Agilent Technologies (A - Get Report) and Quest Diagnostics (DGX - Get Report).
"While GPS product was very 'trend right' during 1Q, the question now is around sustainability in to 2Q/2H (note weaker than expected May comp and mgmt. comments that 1Q saw a product 'full forward' on unseasonable weather)," Deutsche Bank analysts wrote in a June 11 report. "Also, it appears to us that product pricing is expensive and that discounting/promotions in the stores and online are ticking up."
