How do I find stocks to analyse and decide if it is worth investing? Every month, I will always start by running the stock screener that I have saved on Stocks Café. There are several websites that offer such a tool to screen for stocks using conditions that you can set such as dividend yield, P/E ratio, P/B ratio and Market Capitalization etc. Some website that offers such a tool are Singapore Exchange, FSMOne and StocksCafe.
The stock screener offered by Stocks Café allows me to save the conditions that I can pre-set. You can check out my review here on the Stocks Café Dividend Stocks Screener (Read more: Screening For Dividend Stocks Using Stocks Cafe Stock Screener).
Below are the top 10 dividend yielding stocks as of 25th September 2019.
||Current Yield %
|Cromwell REIT EUR
|CapitaRetail China Trust
|Cromwell REIT SGD
|Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust
|Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust AUD
|Mapletree Industrial Trust
|Frasers Commercial Trust
|Mapletree NAC Trust
Haw Par has appeared in my previous screening for dividend stocks. The current yield of 8.569% is misleading and I would have dived into the stock if I have not done my personal analysis of Haw Par. Haw Par has paid out a special dividend last year and that is why it always appear top in my screening list for dividend stocks.
There are a few stocks in the above list that I am interested in. Thus, they are possible candidates to add to my stock portfolio after I have done my personal analysis of them. They are Cromwell REIT, CapitaRetail China Trust, Mapletree Industrial Trust and Mapletree NAC Trust. All of them have a current dividend yield of above 5% which is one of the conditions for dividend stocks.
