Dileepa your article copied from your blog post is an eye openner to many. Thanks for sharing a valuable article on value investing.

Just a few suggestions to improve the screener so that priority areas where funds need diversion for maximisation of profits could be easily decided;
1. Addition of a collumn to show price of the share at the time of calculation with the date if possible.
2. Addition of another collumn to calculate "per rupee benifit of ...." using a suitable info such as 5yr average dividend or 5yr average EPS and current share price.

Thank you once again.

I know that many people want to get rich quickly cheers 
Just copy pasting from my blog:


Why Dividends Are Important
When making a investment decision, Dividend Yield is the fist thing I look at. I consider many other factors, but I never invest on non dividend paying companies. This is why dividends are so important to me.

1. A Guarantee Of Safety
Generally companies which pay dividends are well established and managed professionally.
A company can not pay dividends (and keep on increasing it for years) if their core business is at risk. Financials can be manipulated but dividends are not. If they don't have cash, then they can't pay you. Once they pay it, it is cash in your pocket and it is yours to spend.

Dividends are the best feedback I can get from a company. Look at the companies like LLUB, NEST, CTC, GLAS, etc. They have been doing something right for decades. If you are holding a dividend paying stock, there is a team of professionals working tirelessly for you. They will worry about the economy, government policy, inflation, war or even zombi attacks for you. When I receive a dividend check, it is not just a check. It's a Certificate of Safety.

2. Beating The Inflation
Investors must keep a close eye on the inflation. Inflation eat up the wealth without you being noticed. However dividend investors can protect their income against inflation by carefully selecting companies which increase dividend at a rate higher than the inflation.
If you are going to retire one day(we all will) and live off the dividend income,
then you have to make sure your dividend check get bigger in every year.

Sri Lanka is a high inflation(10%) country. I always look for companies with a track record of increasing dividends at a rate higher than 10%. This is where [Share Screener] becomes a great asset to me. There are 32 companies which have 5 year dividend growth rate of 30% or more. All of them may not suitable for dividend investors. But there a plenty of opportunities to explore. I do share my dividend analysis here. make sure to subscribe or visit this page frequently to get the updates.

3. Passive Income Generation
This is the ultimate goal of dividend investing. Idea is to collect enough dividend paying shares over the time, to a level where annual dividend received is higher than your annual salary. Imagine what it would be like if you can live off the dividend without touching capital investment. You will never run out of money and one day you can hand over your entire wealth to your grand kids.

I hate to wake up and go to office every morning. I hate rush hour traffic. My dream day will begin when I quit my job and start living off the dividend income. Dividend investors do plan for retirement 10-20 years ahead of time. My parents worked till their 60's to get a pension which became worthless in less than 5 years due to inflation. I'm not going to do the same mistake.  I will go on to details of my retirement plan in a separate post.

4. Magic Of Compounding
Albert Einstein is a true genius. He said, "Compounding Interest is the Greatest Force in the Universe. He who understand it, earns it and he who doesn't, pays it". Dividend investors can reinvest their dividends and earn more from reinvested dividends. Over the years compounding will have a staggering effect on your portfolio.

Actually my favorite part of investing is re-investing the dividends. LLUB is a perfect example for Compounding effect. They pay dividend quarterly. I buy 100+ new shares in every quarter by reinvesting the dividends. If you do the match, my actual dividend yield is considerably higher than the indicated yield. Compounding is a nice topic to discuss and I'm going to make a separate post on this in the future.

5. It Teach Financial Discipline
Perhaps this it the most important part of dividend investing. Dividends will teach you the time value of money. It will prevent you from over trading. You will not do any stupid mistakes. Noise in the market will not effect your decisions. You will have more time to read and think than clicking the mouse. Eventually you will learn to live below your means and save for the future.

I learned that buying new stuff and posting on Facebook will not help in me a long time ago. For many, first thing on the list is a new vehicle after getting first salary. Then maybe a housing loan which you will pay for next 20-30 years. Add a insanely expensive wedding to that and your financial future will be seald for ever. Most professionals I know lives from pay check to pay check. There is no retirement plan in the horizon, let alone an early retirement. Dividend investors will never fall in to traps like this. That alone is enough for me to invest on dividend paying companies.
Good one Dileepa,It reminds me one of the great book of investment Very Happy

Thanks cseguide, That might be the case for some. But I could download it without logging in. I also uploaded it to dropbox. Those who are having problems can try this too.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/qcknffif3rmj6ye/CSE_Screener_1_4_0.xlsm

I will try to make the changes suggested by you and Hapu.
Anyway Forum is not flexible enough for that type of work.
May be next year I will implement this in a website.

Dileepa, I noticed that certain results under some shares are zero. ?Is it due to data down load issue or un-availability of necessary info. in the data base.

I also noticed that. It is because data is not available at Financial Times DB.
For example, AEL financial data is not available at @
http://markets.ft.com/research/Markets/Tearsheets/Financials?s=AEL.N0000:CSE

I think it is better to use couple of data sources. Any good suggestions?
Earlier I was using Bloomberg but they don't support CSE now.

Do Agree.CTC, GLASS, NEST & LLUB are multinationals. Trough the dividend they get pumped money abroad.
