One of the unique challenges that retirees face is creating an investment portfolio that creates a roughly equal amount of dividend income each month.

This challenge can be overcome by selectively investing similar amounts in securities that pay dividends in each calendar month.

With that in mind, Sure Dividend has created a database of stocks that pay dividends in January. You can access the database below:

 

The January-paying dividend stocks list available for download above contains the following metrics for each stock:

How To Use The January Dividend Stocks List To Find Investment Ideas

Having a spreadsheet database that contains the names, tickers, and financial information of every stock that pays dividends in January can be extremely useful.

This document becomes even more powerful when combined with a fundamental knowledge of how to use Microsoft Excel to identify individual investment opportunities.

With this in mind, this tutorial will demonstrate how you can use the Excel list available for download above to find high-quality stocks that pay dividends in the month of January.

More specifically, we’ll show you how to apply two screens. The first screen is to find blue-chip stocks with dividend yields above 2% and market capitalizations above $20 billion.

Screen 1: Dividend Yields Above 2% and Market Capitalizations Below $20 Billion

Step 1: Download the January-paying dividend stocks list by clicking here. Apply Excel’s filter function to every column in the spreadsheet.

Step 2: Click the filter icon at the top of the dividend yield column, as shown below.

Step 3: Change the filter setting to “Greater Than” and input 0.02 into the field beside it. Since dividend yield is measured as a percent, this will filter for January-paying dividend stocks with yields above 2%.

Step 4: Close out of the filter window (by clicking the exit button, not by clicking the “Clear Filter” button in the bottom right corner). Next, click the filter icon at the top of the market capitalization column, as shown below.

Step 5: Change the filter setting to “Greater Than” and input 20000 into the field beside it. Since market capitalizations is measured in millions in this document, this is equivalent to filtering for January-paying dividend stocks with market capitalizations above $20 billion.

The remaining stocks in this spreadsheet are stocks that pay dividends in January that have dividend yields above 2% and market capitalizations above $20 billion.

The next screen that we’ll demonstrate excludes overvalued stocks by screening for January dividend stocks with price-to-earnings ratios below 20 and dividend yields above 3%.

Screen 2: Price-to-Earnings Ratios Below 20 and Dividend Yields Above 3%

Step 1: Download the January-paying dividend stocks list by clicking here. Apply Excel’s filter function to every column in the spreadsheet.

Step 2: Click the filter icon at the top of the price-to-earnings ratio column, as shown below.

Step 3: Change the filter setting to “Less Than” and input 20 into the field beside it, as shown below. This will filter for stocks that pay dividends in January with price-to-earnings ratios less than 20.

Step 4: Close out of the filter window (by clicking the exit button, not by clicking the “Clear Filter” button in the bottom right corner). Next, click the filter icon at the top of the dividend yield column, as shown below.

Step 5: Change the filter setting to “Greater Than” and input 0.03 into the field beside it, as shown below. This will filter for stocks that pay dividends in January with dividend yields above 3%.

You now have a solid, fundamental understanding of how to use the January-paying dividend stocks list to find investment ideas.

The remainder of this article will discuss other useful investing resources that can assist you along your journey in the world of equity investing.
