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.
