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: Deutsche Bank ( DB), Ross Stores ( ROST), NV Energy ( NVE) and Regal Entertainment ( RGC).
Deutsche Bank The bank reported on April 26 first-quarter earnings of €1.4 billion, down from year-earlier earnings of €2.1 billion. "Deutsche is one of the leading global investment banks," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a May 11 report. "It has come through the crisis relatively well, taking market share organically in investment banking and via acquisition in retail banking. Against those positives, changing regulations have caused investors to demand banks hold higher capital. To date, Deutsche Bank has resisted moving to the level of capital ratios of its peers - although we see that changing in 2012." Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.9%
