Ex-Dividend Stocks: Boeing, Wal-Mart, Pfizer

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The following stocks go ex-dividend Wednesday, meaning an investor must purchase the shares Tuesday to qualify for the next dividend payment: Boeing ( BA), BP ( BP), Consol Energy ( CNX), GlaxoSmithKline ( GSK), Pfizer ( PFE), Charles Schwab ( SCHW), Spectra Energy ( SE), J.M. Smucker ( SJM) and Wal-Mart ( WMT).

Boeing

The commercial jetliner company reported on April 25 first-quarter earnings of $923 million, or $1.22 a share, up from year-earlier earnings of $586 million, or 72 cents.

"Despite the recent move in the BA stock, it is still up only 5% year to date," Sterne Agee analysts wrote in a May 2 report. "With a slew of orders coming before and at Farnborough Air Show (July), an investor day on May 14 to highlight progress on major platforms and our view that 2012 guidance is conservative, we believe both short- and long-term investors should still buy BA at current levels."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.3%
