Four FREE Stock Screeners That Do Wonder

Stock screener
Before we start to analyse the stocks (either using Fundamental Analysis or Technical Analysis), we need to identify which stock(s) to analyse first. usually, there are three ways we can go about it i.e. :
 
1. Randomly pick from the whole list of the stocks available for trading.
2. Base on the news/reports that you read from online or offline resources.
3. Use a stock screener to filter out the relevant stocks that match with your desired parameters (e.g. PE Ratio, Dividend Yield etc...).
 
I believed most investors are practicing either (2) and/or (3), like myself. For number (3), I would like to share 4 FREE stock screeners that I am currently using and hope that you folks find them useful too. 
 
1. SGX's Stock Screener :
With the recent revamp of the SGX site, I think not many people know that there is a stock screener tool hidden within the site. As the name implied, you can only screen Singapore Stocks here.

2. Financial Times' Equity Screener :
This is a global equity screener, you can choose the regions (Europe, Americas, Asia Pacific etc..) and/or the industries for the screening and there are more than enough pre-defined criteria/parameters for your selection.

3. Google Finance's Stock Screener :
Similar to FT Equity Screener but this one allows you to screen specific country only.

4. Dividend Investor's Screener :
This is probably more relevant to those dividend investors, with their build-in screener (or tracker), you can filter those upcoming stocks with dividend by date range. This is the only dividend stock screener that I chanced upon with dual language (English/Chinese) setting. NOTE : you need to register and sign-in before screening or else the Stock symbols will not be reflected.

Hope that you folks find the above sharing useful and I am sure that there are other more powerful FREE stock screeners out there. Do share with us if you chanced upon one or two out there.
 
Cheers!
