History of dividend payment for stocks in the US stock market

by The trader, 1798 days ago

Dividends are portion of corporate profits that a company decides to redistribute to its shareholders.
Depending on their dividend policy, some companies will pay dividend to their shareholders while others prefer to invest in their future growth.

This downloader gets dividend data from the yahoo finance website. It downloads history of dividend payment for stocks that trade in the US Stock market.
The dividend data is stored in a custom database whose name is 'dividend'.

This data can of course be accessed by the QuantShare language and thus be used in the screener, watch list, composite, rules, simulator...

One formula that I personally found it interesting is the following:
dividend = GetData("dividend","dividend",Zero);
a = BarsSince(dividend);
plot(a, "dividend", colorBlue,ChartLine,StyleOwnScale);
The barssince formula will let you know, for any bar, since how many bars the last dividend payment was made.

You can manually adjust stock prices for splits and dividends by selecting "Symbol -> Split/Dividend".

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
