    Yield in the spreadsheet below is based on the Q1-14 dividend. Spreadsheet header abbreviations: Div = dividend; EPS = earnings per share; LTM = last twelve months; YTD = year to date. The dividend to EPS ratio is a measure of dividend safety. At this point in time, companies that pay dividends once per year have had their payouts divided by four and encoded in this data is if they paid a quarterly dividend. ABBV has announced an increase in its Q2-14 div to $0.42/share payable 5-15-14.
