Screening For Dividend Stocks In February 2020

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).
