    Thanks for all you do!!
    Noticed the P/FCF, percent of free cash flow was absent.
    Is this permanent or an anomaly?

    Since posing the question, I found David Van Knapp's article on Why Aren't
    the DA and the Dividend Champions the same?

    No need to respond to my question. Keep up the good work!!

    I really appreciate you and your work...thank you. I use the CCC as a launching
    pad and then conduct my own research.

    A question: The Dividend Aristocrats SDY has 50-54 companies who have increased dividends for more than 25 years. Yet the 25+ column on your
    work of art show over a hundred. What in your opinion distinguishes the SDY
    50 vs the 100 with over 25 years on the your CCC list.

    Again thanks for all you do...

    Re AT Dividend:

    What about the IRA exemption from 15% withholding, any brokerage firms granting exemptions? See AT corporate note below...

    The Company's common share dividend is subject to a 15% withholding tax for U.S. holders. U.S. individuals holding shares in taxable accounts may be eligible to receive a credit on their U.S. income tax return for this withholding tax. U.S. individuals holding the Company's common shares in Individual Retirement Accounts ("IRAs") may be exempt from withholding tax pursuant to the Canada – U.S. Income Tax Convention.

    Taxpayers should always seek their own independent qualified professionals regarding the tax consequences of purchasing or owning common shares of the Company. Individuals who believe the withholding tax exemption applies to their IRA should contact their broker to determine how to claim the exemption.

    Well done on the screening and analysis! What if any are the tax implications of AT being an internatioal (Canadian) company?
