How To Use The List of Stocks That Pay Dividends in August to Find Investment Ideas

Having a spreadsheet database with the names, tickers, and financial information of every stock that pays dividends in August is very useful.

This document becomes even more powerful when combined with a working knowledge of how to use Microsoft Excel to find investment ideas.

With that in mind, this tutorial will demonstrate how you can implement two actionable investing screens to our list of stocks that pay dividends in August.

The first screen that we’ll implement is for value stocks. More specifically, we’ll screen for stocks with price-to-earnings ratios below 11 and price-to-book ratios below 1.5.

The next screen that we’ll demonstrate is for stocks that retain the majority of their earnings to fund internal growth while simultaneously trading at low multiples of these earnings.

More specifically, we’ll filter for stocks with payout ratios below 50% and price-to-earnings ratios below 15.
