  • Stock prices correlations: Dividend Growth stocks vs. S&P500 1 comment
    Nov 18, 2011 9:23 AM
    I compared prices of Dividend Growth stocks (from David Fish's CCC list from October 2011) with S&P500 represented by SPY ETF. Prices are from Yahoo.com for period from 1/29/1993 till 11/17/2011for SPY and for the same or shorter period (if Yahoo doesn't have data) for the companies.
    The results are
