On 5/4/18, Lazard (NYSE:LAZ), Vornado Realty Trust (NYSE:VNO), and OceanFirst Financial Corp (NASDAQ:OCFC) will all trade ex-dividend for their respective upcoming dividends.

As a percentage of LAZ's recent stock price of $54.94, this dividend works out to approximately 0.80%, so look for shares of Lazard to trade 0.80% lower — all else being equal — when LAZ shares open for trading on 5/4/18. Similarly, investors should look for VNO to open 0.91% lower in price and for OCFC to open 0.56% lower, all else being equal.

Lazard (NYSE:LAZ):

Vornado Realty Trust (NYSE:VNO):

OceanFirst Financial Corp (NASDAQ:OCFC):

In general, dividends are not always predictable, following the ups and downs of company profits over time. Therefore, a good first due diligence step in forming an expectation of annual yield going forward, is looking at the history above, for a sense of stability over time. This can help in judging whether the most recent dividends from these companies are likely to continue. If they do continue, the current estimated yields on annualized basis would be 3.20% for Lazard, 3.64% for Vornado Realty Trust, and 2.24% for OceanFirst Financial Corp.
