1.) I downloaded the Company dividend excel sheet that shows the dividends given by companies over the years. there are values like 6.5, 23 under interim dividend. What is this ? is it a percentage?
2.) Does any one of your'll use any decision management system to predict the best stock or is it through experience that your'll make the decision ?
3.) What are the information should i be looking for, prior to buying stocks from a company. I can't look at the past 5 year records of the company from cse.lk as i have to pay 1000/- a month. Is there any other source that i should look at instead ?
I hope some of your'll would help newbies like me by sharing some of the details to select the best company to gain short term gains.
