Is there a way to access ex dividend dates for companies without having to access each one separately?

Once the dividends are declared, a list is published each Monday in the Australian Financial Review. and monthly in Smart Investor Magazine.

Aspect Financial ( have a list upcoming dividends for the next three months on their web site. You can trial it for a short period, but you will then need to subscribe. I rate this site highly as value for money in accessing fundamental data.

The Aspect Finacial list is also available on the Andrew West & Co web site(, but you need to be a client to access it. Other broker web sites probably also carry such a list.
