The post These 5 ASX 200 shares are going ex-dividend this week appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –

On the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO), most companies that pay a dividend do so every six months. That means that every week, there is usually at least one ASX 200 dividend share that is about to trade ex-dividend for its upcoming shareholder payouts.

An ex-dividend date usually results in a corresponding drop in the company’s share price. So it pays to know when exactly your shares are about to go ex-div. As for this week, these ASX 200 dividend shares are in line to do just that:

5 ASX 200 dividend shares going ex-dividend this week

Adbri Ltd (ASX: ABC)

ASX 200 construction company Adbri (formerly Adelaide Brighton Cement) is our next ASX share going ex-dividend this week.
