It is surprising how stupid the Internet is sometimes. There is no way to find simple informations, like basic data for stocks traded on itnternational markets.
I don’t want much, just a place where I can find P/E ratio, dividends, debts earning growth and sales growth for companies traded all over the World.
So far there is no such website. Google finanace doesn’t give decent data outside USA. On yahoo finance you canfind something only if you start digging into places like yahoo. fr yahoo.it yahoo.es or yahoo.de, but you need some understanding of foreign languages. The real disaster is when you need data about Japaneese, Russian or Chinese comanies. Then you’re lost into ideograms with no hope of understanding. Anyway yahoo finance usually has very little data even on its internatrional portals.
The best place I found so far is msn . I could find some data on msn.es, msn.fr … and so on. At least I could spot p/e and dividends. The problem of ideograms is still there, but I don’t think there is anything better than msn available

This is the new 10 “Dogs of the Eurostoxx” list for year 2008 (price and dividend on Jan, 9, 2008):
We can notice that half of those high yielding stocks are banks. This is the result of “subprime” turmoil on financial markets that heavily hit banks during second half of 2007. It happened in the US, but also hit European banks.
Comparing 2008 list with last year’s dogs of the Eurostoxx we notice that only
- Telecom Italia (same dividend, lover price),
- Société Générale(higher dividend, lower price),
- Deutsche Telekom (same dividend, higher price)
- and France Télécom (higher dividend, higher price)
are still in the list.
With high risks on stock markets, rates pointing down, recession fears for US Economy and US dollars sliding, it may be interesting to invest on those European large companies that should yield good cash. I will probably do so. It will take me a few months to buy them all, because I only own Telecom Italia and Deutsche Telekom so far. I will start buying Intesa San Paolo, Italy’s largest bank, which yields juicy 7.29%. (more…)

We, the people, love dividends. We like them because we always have to work and at least when we invest we want to see money flow on our bank accounts without having to work for once. We like dividends because we trust companies that are able to pay cash year after year. The Dogs of the Dow are well known. They are the 10 stocks that deliver the best dividends among the 30 stocks that are included in famous Dow Jones Industrial Average. But there are dogs also outside USA. Here I present a nice table of the Dogs of the Eurostoxx 50, which is the index of 50 most important companies. The Dogs are the best 10 dividend payers.
