I often get asked for assistance in finding the best information on dividends out there. I have compiled a list of helpful links for your reference.
No matter if you are a new or a seasoned dividend investor, there are several lists containing high quality dividend stocks which could provide a good start in your research. Such lists include the Dividend Aristocrats and the Dividend Achievers. I have mentioned previously what I liked about the Dividend Aristocrats and the Dividend Achievers as well.
Here’s a list of current dividend aristocrats. Here’s a list of the current members of the dividend achievers index.
For more financial Information which could aid in researching particular stock issues check out the resources below:
Morningstar - It provides ten year trend information for balance sheets, income statements and cash flow statements, which could be really useful for any fundamental investors.
Value Line- The best features of this service that I like are the historical Dow Jones charts along with dividends and earnings going back to 1920. Another extremely useful glimpse of Value Line’s services is the complementary list of free stock reports covering all 30 Dow Jones industrials companies.
SEC – The Securities and Exchange Commission website is where you could find a variety of filings, including but not limited to financial statements filed by public companies. Other filings include ownership changes by major investors such as Warren Buffett.
ADVFN – This site also provides useful historical financial information on US and foreign stocks. One thing that I like ADVFN better than Morningstar is that it offers free financial statement historical data for up to 15 years.
Google Finance – I enjoy checking recent quarterly or annual financial statements at Google Finance, as they seem to be updated more often than other sites offering similar services. This site is still in a Beta Version, so I would expect Google to add more functions to this service.
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. You should always try to check your information with other sites however, as I have found on several occasions missing data pertaining to stocks going ex-dividend. One another thing that I like about Yahoo Finance is the ability to check the holdings of various indexes, including the various Dividend Achievers Indexes.
If you are looking to learn more about dividend investing, then I would recommend starting out with The Div-Net, which has many members. The site is updated at least once a day with useful information pertaining to value and dividend investing.
