FinanceBoards Widget Spotlight #24: The Company’s Dividend Information & Metrics Widgets

Knowing the Amount, History, Historical Percentage Change and the Timing of a Company’s Dividend or Lack thereof is another example of research data and information widgets that warrant being added to one of your FinanceBoards Dashboard(s) or one that can be selected to be included in your FinanceBoards Dashboard listing.

With FinanceBoards, you can configure your researching and investing dashboard(s) with any of our 500 + financial data or information widgets. In our FinanceBoards Widget Spotlight Series, we pick one or a group of these widgets and explain how it works and go over why you should consider adding them to your FinanceBoard dashboard(s).

The Widgets in the Spotlight Today are the Company’s Dividend Information & Metric Widgets.

Dividend Information

The following four Dividend Information and & Metrics Widgets are available on the FinanceBoards platform for research purposes: Dividend Amounts, Dividend History, Dividend Changes and Dividend Calendar.

The Dividend Amounts Widget lists the Most Recent Dividend, The Expected Annual Dividend, The Last Fiscal Year Dividend, The last 12 Months Dividend, and the Average 3, 5 and 10-year Dividend.

The Dividends History Widget lists the last 10 exact EX Dividend Dates and the Amount of the Dividend for each date listed.

The Dividends Changes Widget lists the 1 Year % Change Amount, The Year Ago Dividend Amount, The Three Years % Change Amount, The Three Years Ago Dividend Amount, The Five Years % Change Amount, and the 5 Years Ago Dividend Amount. The 10 Years % Change, and the 10 Years Ago Dividend Amount.

The Dividend Calendar Widget shows the last Dividend Pay Date, when it was Announced and when it went Ex-Dividend, the Record Date, The Frequency, and the Payment Type.

Placing one of these widgets on any one of your FinanceBoards Dashboard(s) or selecting the Dividends Dashboard from the Public Dashboards listing, which can be accessed by the configure link at the bottom of the Dashboard listing, provides you with relevant Dividend Information and Metrics on the stock that you are holding or considering trading all on one accessible screen of information.

As with all of the Company oriented information or data widgets the company’s ticker symbol can be entered in at the top of the widget for research on that particular company and the metrics will be instantaneously displayed on it.

The breadth of FinanceBoards’ financial research data and information widgets both classic and new are much greater than just the Company’s Dividend Information & Metric Widgets. You can also create any Widget yourself from any API and add it to your dashboards, either our premade ones or ones you’ve created.
