How do you choose to invest in a dividend stock on a week like this week? 433 Companies are paying out dividends this week alone. There are some definite problems with a list this size, where do you even begin? Monday and Thursday the choice was easier with only 52 companies to choose from (26 Monday, 26 Thursday).
Is the size of the dividend the most important factor? Or can it be that the annual yield is the driving force in making the right choice for your portfolio? What are your objectives when it comes to investing in the stock market or in a dividend stock?
If you have been following any of my past posts', you would know that I like the Dividend Capturing Strategy (buy stock before ex-date, sell for profit after date of record). Entering 433 companies into my dividend stock software was time consuming but it definitely cut my time in choosing the right stock for me and my objectives. The most important factor for choosing the right stock for the dividend capturing strategy for me is... How many times over the last 10 years has this companies stock done exactly what I wanted it to do? To find out this information, I created some dividend stock picking software that have a few complex mathematical equations designed to cut my research time and allow me make better decisions in my dividend investing.
You too might want to think about taking a look at what I have been doing.
Just out of high school I decided to be self employed, after running a successful manufacturing business I had a problem of making more money than I knew what to do with. I started investing, after 23 years of investing I now want to share my strategy with a select few that want an extra edge in their own investing.
