    Wow, that list of stocks looks like a very solid starting point for further research.

    I just would like you to clarify something. In the lead paragraph you say these companies raised their dividends by a minimum percentage for each of the previous "x" years. Fair enough.

     

    But, your website that you refer to in that same paragraph talks about you creating a CAGR for the dividend increases. Also, fair enough.

     

    Can you just clarify which method this list used? Minimum percentage each year or CAGR?

     

    Thanks, and, nice work by the way.

    Author’s reply » Hi No Free Cake,

     

    Thanks for writing, and thanks for allowing me to clarify.

     

    My web site (www.tessellation.com/d...) lists (among other data) the CAGR for the stocks I cover.

     

    This particular instablog lists not the CAGR, but which of the stocks I cover increased their dividends by a minimum of X percent for the most recent Y years.

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    Thanks for the feedback!

     

    Robert
