When an ASX 200 share trades ex-dividend, it’s normally a pretty big deal. For one, new investors in said company will no longer be eligible for the upcoming dividend payment if they buy the shares after the company has traded ex-dividend.

But reflecting this loss of value for new investors, an ex-dividend date also tends to result in a company’s shares losing a fair chunk of value.

So in these ways, ex-dividend dates are fairly conspicuous events on the ASX 200.

Keeping that in mind, let’s discuss three ASX 200 shares that will be going ex-dividend tomorrow.

3 ASX 200 shares scheduled to trade ex-dividend tomorrow

First up is ASX 200 metallurgical coal mining company Coronado Global Resources Inc (ASX: CRN). Last month, Coronado announced a half-yearly dividend worth 0.5 US cents per share, fully franked. That’s a decent payout to be sure, not one that pales in comparison with some of the monstrous shareholder payouts Coronado sent investors’ way last year.

But new investors won’t be eligible to receive this upcoming dividend come tomorrow, with the payment date now set for 5 April next month. Right now, Coronado shares have a dividend yield of 6.57%.

Next up we have News Corporation (ASX: NWS). This ASX 200 media group, famously helmed by the Murdoch family, also reported its earnings last month. Investors weren’t too thrilled with the lower revenues and earnings News Corp reported. But shareholders will still be getting an increased dividend coming their way.

News Corp is scheduled to go ex-div for the unfranked 10 US cents per share payment on Tuesday, which will be a meaningful increase from the 9.4 cents per share payment that was issued last year.

After tomorrow’s session, News Corp shareholders can then expect to receive this latest dividend on 12 April. News Corp shares have a dividend yield of 1.2%.

What about an ASX travel share?

Finally, let’s talk about ASX 200 travel share Corporate Travel Management Ltd (ASX: CTD). Corporate Travel has been struggling in the dividend department for a couple of years now. After halting its dividends over half of 2020 and all of 2021, the company returned to paying dividends last year.

But the final dividend of  5 cents per share, unfranked, that was paid in September 2022 was a far cry from the fully-franked 22 cents per share investors enjoyed in 2019. Corporate Travel’s next dividend will come on 14 April next month after the company trades ex-dividend tomorrow.

It will be worth 6 cents per share and also be unfranked. Corporate Travel shares have a dividend yield of 0.62% as it currently stands.
