Dividend Channel is a dividend stock research website, aimed at financial advisors and retail investors trying to maximize the opportunities in dividend payers. The site includes a number of ground-breaking features that allow investors to dig deeper into interesting dividend stocks, including the site's DividendRank system. Each week Dividend Channel sends a newsletter, after screening through its coverage universe of dividend paying stocks, and looking at a variety of data such as dividend history, current dividend yield, book value, and quarterly earnings, and comparing that fundamental data to the stock's trading data to come up with certain calculations about profitability and valuation. The top most interesting stocks as identified by the proprietary DividendRank formula are then presented neatly divided into 17 sectors/categories. Subscribers find these lists to be a great research tool for generating ideas that merit further research.
