Final Thoughts: Other Useful Investing Resources

Having an Excel document that contains the name, tickers, and financial information for all stocks that pay dividends in December is quite useful – but it becomes far more useful when combined with other databases for the non-December months of the calendar year.

Fortunately, Sure Dividend also maintains similar databases for the other 11 months of the year. You can access these databases below:

These databases, used in conjunction with one another, will allow you to create a portfolio whose dividend income is diversified by calendar month.

Another important aspect of a well-diversified investment portfolio is sector diversification. For obvious reasons, having all of your money invested in energy stocks does not mean you’re diversified – even if you own 500 different energy stocks.

With this in mind, Sure Dividend maintains datbases for each of the 10 major sectors of the stock market. You can download these databases below:

Diversification aside, we believe that some of the most compelling investment opportunities in the public markets exist with companies that have consistently increased they annual dividend payments over time.

With that principle in mind, the following Sure Dividend databases are great places to look for investment ideas:

In fact, Sure Dividend’s entire research philosophy is focused on identifying companies with above-average total retru npotential combined with strong dividend growth prospects. We publish our research findings, which follow The 8 Rules of Dividend Investing, in the following monthly research publications:
