How to Import Dividend into Google Sheets

Investors often seek to track dividend data for their stock investments in Google Sheets. This data can include dividend yield, payment amounts, and historical dividend events. However, Google Sheets does not natively support importing dividend data through the Google Finance function. This guide explores various methods to import and manage dividend data in Google Sheets, enhancing investment tracking and decision-making.

Google Sheets Dividend Data

While Google Finance offers a range of financial data, it lacks direct support for importing detailed dividend information. Users looking to incorporate dividend data into their Google Sheets have to look for alternative methods. These methods range from using third-party add-ons to importing data from financial websites.

Dividend Tracking Spreadsheet Google Sheets

One practical solution for tracking dividend data is to use a dividend tracking spreadsheet template. These templates are designed to help investors manage their dividend stocks efficiently. Before using a template, users must make a copy of it to their Google Drive. This enables personalization and editing, allowing investors to add their stock holdings and track dividend payments over time.

How to Get Dividend Data in Google Sheets

There are several ways to import dividend data into Google Sheets:

  • Using Third-Party Add-ons: Add-ons like Dividend Data from the Google Workspace Marketplace offer extensive information on historical and future dividend events for stocks traded on Nasdaq. After installing the add-on, users can access a variety of dividend data, including cash amount per share, declaration date, ex-dividend date, record date, and pay date.
  • Wisesheets Add-on: Another method is using the Wisesheets add-on, which simplifies the process of importing real-time and historical dividend data. Users can retrieve dividend yield and payment amounts for stocks across multiple exchanges by entering specific functions provided by Wisesheets, such as '=WISE("ticker", "dividend yield", "ttm")' for real-time dividend yield or '=WISEPRICE("ticker", "dividend")' for historical dividend payments.

These methods enable investors to maintain a comprehensive dividend tracking spreadsheet in Google Sheets, facilitating better investment tracking and analysis.
