Screening For Dividend Stocks In March 2020

Screening For Dividend Stocks In March 2020

The stock market crashed this week on further news of the spread of the COVID-19 virus and also the oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia. Due to the continued bad news, the Straits Times Index (STI) fell as much as 6.03% on Monday, 9th March 2020. As you can see from the chart below, the Straits Times Index (STI) crashed further on Friday, 13th Mar 2020 before rebounding slightly at the end of the day.

During such crisis, there is an opportunity to start picking up quality stocks that can climb back and continue its growth when the stock market normalize in 1 or 2 years time (I guess).

If you had followed my blog, you know that I always have my stock screener ready to identify stocks that gives me a good dividend yield. When stock price goes down, the current dividend yield goes up.

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).

Screening For Dividend Stocks In February 2020

We all know that the recent COVID 19 outbreak situation has impacted the stocks market in a way or other. I have previously done a post on how virus outbreak impact the Straits Time Index. At crisis like this, investors usually have a watch list whereby they start looking out for companies that share prices have fallen and this poses an opportunity for them to buy their favorite companies at cheap prices. If you have not have a watch list yet, how do you get started? One way is to use a stock screener. Earlier this week, I have done my review on the Yahoo Finance Stock Screener but it doesn’t suit my liking. You can also try out FSMOne Stock Screener. But I am sticking to Stocks Café Stock Screener.

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).

With the ongoing protests in Hong Kong, this has impacted REITs that have Hong Kong assets in its portfolio. Protesters are vandalising malls and this causes shoppers to stay at home, forcing shopping malls and shops to shut their doors.

One such example is Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust which has Festival Walk as one of its assets.

Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust is a real estate investment trust, which invests directly or indirectly in a diversified portfolio of income-producing real estate in Hong Kong SAR, China and Japan. It focuses on commercial assets as well as real estate-related assets. Its objective is to achieve an attractive level of return from rental income and long-term capital growth. The company was founded in February 2013 and is headquartered in Singapore.
