With earnings season now in its fourth week, there have been countless results releases and companies declaring their latest dividends this month.

The good news for investors is that it isn’t too late for investors to get hold of some of these dividends.

Here are three buy-rated ASX 200 shares that are due to go ex-dividend shortly:

Coles Group Ltd (ASX: COL)

Income investors might want to consider this supermarket giant operator’s shares before they trade ex-dividend for its fully franked 36 cents per share interim dividend on Thursday 2 March. If bought before that date, investors will then receive this dividend later that month on 30 March.

This morning, the team at Morgans responded to Coles’ half-year results by retaining its add rating with an improved price target of $19.60.

Telstra Group Ltd (ASX: TLS)

This telco giant could be an ASX 200 dividend share to buy before it trades ex-dividend next week on Wednesday 1 March. Earlier this month, the telco giant released its half-year results and declared a fully franked interim dividend of 8.5 cents per share. This will be paid to eligible shareholders at the very end of next month on 31 March.

Goldman Sachs responded to Telstra’s half-year results by reiterating its buy rating with a $4.60 price target.

Whitehaven Coal Ltd (ASX: WHC)

This ASX 200 coal miner’s shares are due to trade ex-dividend on Thursday for its massive 32 cents per share fully franked interim dividend. This will then be paid to eligible shareholders next month on 10 March.

Citi certainly thinks investors should be snapping up shares for this dividend. Last week, it put a buy rating and $9.25 price target on its shares.
