Key points

  • Many ASX All Ords stocks will be trading ex-dividend this week
  • That means interested market watchers better get in quick to secure the companies' upcoming payments
  • Australian Clinical Labs kicks off the action today, while Rural Funds and Harvey Norman will pass the milestone later this week

It's shaping up to be a big week for All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) dividend shares. Many are gearing up to trade ex-dividend after reporting in the February earnings season.

Anyone buying a company's stock after its ex-dividend date will miss out on its next payment. So, investors wanting a piece of these dividends better get in quick.

It's also worth bearing in mind that on their ex-dividend trading day, ASX shares typically fall approximately equal to the value of their next dividend.

8 ASX All Ords shares trading ex-dividend this week

First off the bat will be Australian Clinical Labs Ltd (ASX: ACL). The ASX All Ords pathology services provider will pass its ex-dividend date today.

That means new shareholders have already missed out on its 7-cent per share dividend. It will be paid on 26 April.

And that might not be all weighing on the stock. The company's takeover target Healius Ltd (ASX: HLS) has responded to its all-scrip offer, noting the bid likely won't meet the required acceptance.

Cedar Woods Properties Limited (ASX: CWP) will be the next All Ords share to trade ex-dividend this week. Shares in the property developer will surpass the milestone on Tuesday.

Investors will see a 13-cent per share dividend paid on 28 April.

Shares in mining equipment provider Emeco Holdings Ltd (ASX: EHL) will trade ex-dividend on Wednesday.

Those holding shares in the All Ords company will receive a 1.25-cent per share dividend from 13 April.

Come Thursday, all eyes will be on agriculture-focused real estate property trust Rural Funds Group (ASX: RFF) and property investor Garda Diversified Property Fund (ASX: GDF). The pair will trade ex-dividend on Thursday.

After that, Garda will pay a 1.8-cent per share dividend on 19 April, while Rural Funds will hand out a 2.9-cent per share offering on 19 April.

Industrial- and office-focused real estate investment trusts (REITs) Centuria Industrial REIT (ASX: CIP) and Centuria Office REIT (ASX: COF) will also trade ex-dividend on Thursday.

They'll pay out their respective 4-cent per share and 3.5-cent per share offerings on 28 April.

And finally, All Ords share Harvey Norman Holdings Limited (ASX: HVN) will also trade ex-dividend this week, passing the milestone on Friday.
