The Word of the Day is dividend, so here's a dividend screen for all the income investors out there.

Dividends are frequently on investors' minds, but we're bringing extra attention to this source of income today. In the spirit of the word of the day, the stocks below are all dividend stocks—with dividend yields over 2 percent—and they're all going ex-dividend over the next week.

A stock's ex-dividend date is the last day an investor has to purchase shares of a company's stock in order to receive a dividend payment. If you're interested in dividend stocks, these dates are pretty important. 

On top of that, each of these stocks is undervalued relative to its cash flow as indicated by a high levered free cash flow/enterprise value (LFCF/EV) ratio.

This ratio—which divides a company's post-interest-payments-on-outstanding-debt free cash flow by the sum of its market cap, debt, minority interest and preferred shares—lets investors know how much money a company has on hand for business growth and dividend payments. When that ratio is greater than 10 percent, the stock may be undervalued.
