I sometimes get asked for assistance in finding the best information on stocks/dividends in the market currently. Below I have put together a list of helpful links for anyone who is interested and ready to pull the trigger.
No matter if you are a new or a veteran dividend investor, there are several categories containing high quality dividend stocks which could provide a good start in your research. These would include the Dividend Aristocrats and the Dividend Kings. I have mentioned previously what I liked about the Dividend Aristocrats and the Dividend Kings in other posts.
For more financial Information which will help you research particular stock issues please do check out the resources below:
Morningstar– It provides ten year trend information for balance sheets, income statements and cash flow statements, which can be really useful for any type of investor.
SEC– The Securities and Exchange Commission website is where you could find a variety of filings and financial statements filed by public companies. Also ownership changes by major investors such as Warren Buffett.( Floyd Mayweather of boxing)
Stockspy– Is an investor software system for news and company event analysis that updates automatically. The wife and I both have it on our Android and Apple phones. It’s great for keeping up to date on stocks and what the market is currently doing at any given time.
Yahoo Finance– I use Yahoo Finance for historical prices and dividends on the stocks I am researching. You could also create portfolios after you register, and track news related to the stocks that interest you. Another thing that I like about Yahoo Finance is the ability to check the holdings of various indexes, including the various Dividend Achievers.
The DIV-Net– If you are looking to learn more about dividend investing, then I would recommend checking out this site. The site is updated at least once a day with useful information pertaining to value and dividend investing.
In the end I just want people to be aware that they can slowly be able to build wealth for their families and themselves by investing in stocks. Sure there are other ways but just about everyone is interconnected by the market (401k, ira, mutual funds) it’s about taking ownership and leaving a legacy for your children/family.
Why work 2 jobs in your 40’s,50’s, and 60’s when you can have your own hard earned money working that second job for you? Rome wasn’t built in a day and that’s why anyone has time for their money to work for them. This is my own personal journey and anyone can follow along but in the end it’s up to them to decide what they truly believe and want to do.
