  • Data From "Dividend Growth Rates: Using The Past To Estimate The Future" 1 comment
    Apr 27, 2012 1:03 PM

    Article in which data were reported: Dividend Growth Rates: Using The Past To Estimate The Future

    Description of table headers:

    • Symbol = company's ticker symbol
    • Yrs = length of dividend growth streak (years)
    • Industry = company's industry
    • MCap = market capitalization ($ millions)
    • 2011, 2001, and 1991 Div = annual dividend payments in those years
    • DGR 2001-2011 and 1991-2001 = dividend growth rates for those time periods

    Notes:

    • Data were compiled from David Fish's Dividend Champions List, Robert Allan Schwartz's website, and Yahoo! Finance.
    • A handful of companies that appear on the Dividend Champions List were omitted from the analysis because I could not find consistent or complete data.
    • Although I made an effort to verify the accuracy of the data, I am not responsible for any errors.
