In this article:

In periods of inflation and market volatility, dividend stocks become particularly attractive, thanks to their regular payouts. TipRanks offers you different ways to identify and assess the best dividend stocks to add to your portfolio. These four features are dedicated to dividend stocks.

1. Dividend Calculator

This handy calculator offers an easy way to calculate projected income for dividend stocks. Use the tool to find dividend stocks. When you enter the name of a stock, the tool will auto-complete relevant fields. If you prefer, you could enter data manually. Either way, you can adjust the criteria to see how your investment will perform over different periods, according to different factors. These factors include whether you add an annual contribution to your investment, or you decide to reinvest it. If you reinvest, you will see a significant jump in your returns.

3. Dividend Yield Calculator

As companies pay dividends on a per-share basis, it can be difficult to know which offers the best deal for its investors. The best way to analyze this is to compare dividend yield. Dividend yield shows dividend payout relative to the share price as a percentage. You can calculate dividend yield by multiplying the dividend amount by distribution frequency, divided by share price at the start of the year. Or you can use our dividend calculator for a quick and easy solution!
