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.

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% )

Last, I just want to mention again that the above list is for reference only and we should do our homework before buying into the stock simply for the dividend yield.

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.

One of the best feature about Stocks Café is that the description gives you a summary about the REIT

Screening For Dividend Stocks In August 2019

How do you find stocks to buy on the stock market? One of the way is to use a stock screener. 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.

For myself, I prefer to run my dividend stocks screening using StocksCafe as it allows me to save the conditions that I can pre-set. You can check out my review here on the StocksCafe Dividend Stocks Screener (Read more: Screening For Dividend Stocks Using Stocks Cafe Stock Screener).

Every month, I will run the stock screener to check what is the highest dividend yielding stock right now. Last week, the stock market experienced a roller coaster ride whereby the stock prices were in a sea of red. Some panic but for me, it poses an opportunity for me to grab some good dividend yielding stocks.

I have limited the results to the top 10 dividend yielding stocks right now. Here are the results:

NameCurrent Yield %P/EP/BMarket Cap
Haw Par8.22171.0113.1B
Capita Retail China Trust7.5149.020.91.7B
Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust7.19311.851.312.7B

Ascott REIT5.77910.331.0022.8B
Prudential USD5.74612.512.06951.8B

Haw Par topped the chart in terms of dividend yield. I really ought to find some time to look into this stock. As of 19th August 2019, Haw Par is trading at S$13.99. Wow, this is really an expensive stock!

Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust also appear in the top 3. As Frasers Logistics and Industrial Trust already make up 13% of my stock portfolio, I shall refrain from adding more to my stock portfolio.

From the list, I am interested in Frasers Commercial Trust whereby this REIT only makes up 1% of my stock portfolio. As of 19th August 2019, Frasers Commercial Trust is trading at S$1.61.

Do you hope the stock market fall further?
