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).

Screening For Dividend Stocks In January 2020

Happy Chinese New Year!

The last time I screen for dividend stocks was back in November 2019. Since its a brand new year and the first month of the year 2020, I am interested to find which stocks currently provide the highest dividend yield.

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 dividend yielding stocks as of 25th January 2020.

Sasseur REIT9.6515.251.031B

Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust5.73811.861.2712.8B
DBS5.72510.791.38266.7B

The above results look pretty interesting as there are some stocks that are unfamiliar to me such as Ascendas-iTrust.

Ascendas India Trust is a property trust which owns seven IT parks and one logistics park in India with total floor area of 13.1 million sq ft spread across Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune and Mumbai. Ascendas India Trust is focused on capitalising on the fast growing IT and logistics industries in India.

Mapletree NAC Trust also appear in the above list as the top dividend yielding stocks but we should be careful here as Mapletree NAC Trust has yet to walk out of the impact of the Hong Kong riots. (Read more: Mapletree North Asia Commercial Trust DPU Fell 13.3% )
