If you have read my post on The College Student’s Guide to Investing and Key Value Fundamentals for Screening Stocks, you know that I have talked about finding value stocks that pay a dividend. However, you may not know exactly how to find these types of stocks. That is why there is so much value in screening for stocks, yet I think few people have mastered it (even I haven’t truly mastered the perfect stock screen, otherwise I would be über rich!).
I keep it basic in this tutorial, just looking at several screening criteria, such as market capitalization, PEG ratio, P/E ratio, profit margin, and dividend yield. There are so many different fundamental and technical aspects to look at, but this is just a basic overview.
