Sorry I hide my true identity but I'm a physicist/engineer, native contrarian and idea generator. I am an eclectic dividend investor with motto "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash" applied to companies I invest in. I like to read /and read a lot - did you look on my SA photo 8-)? /... More

  • "Dividends were reduced" - request for information 0 comments
    May 18, 2011 3:17 PM
    Hello,

    I'm running research of dividend cuts. Goal is to create set of metrics (like Altman Z-scope) to predict possible dividend reduction.
    From data I have it is clear that metrics are sector dependent - they are different for banks, REITs, industrials, etc.

    I have enough data for banks, retailers and insurances statistics, but need to crunch more numbers to have robust metrics for other industries.

    I'm looking for info (symbols ) about US and non-US companies that reduced their dividends within last 20 years.
    1) a company should have growing or flat dividends for at least 5 years before the dividend cut or 2) a company should have long history (at least 8 years) of dividends with variations of quarterly dividends much smaller than the dividend reduction.
    Dividends cut in type 2 company should be big enough, so computer will distinguish it from normal dividends fluctuations.
    The 5 & 8 years requirements are valid for quarterly dividends, if they are annual I need 4X more history.

    Please email me possible ticker symbols with subject line "Dividends were reduced"

    Thank you for you help!

      As 18 May 2011 I already analyzed the following companies that did and did NOT cut dividends (the latest were used in control runs to see the metrics robustness):

    As you see I combined different banks and various REITs into 2 categories and did the same with different retailers and insurances (doesn't show here). I think there are not enough examples of dividends drops for "small" industries presented only by dozen or so companies. What can be combined also?

      Once again - I'd appreciate your suggestions about companies which did reduce their dividends during last 20 years and do issue periodical financial reports.

    Sincerely
    SDS
