About the Dividend Champions List

The Dividend Champions list is a monthly publication tracking companies with a history of consistently increasing their dividends. Wider in scope than the well-known S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats and Nasdaq Dividend Achievers, the Dividend Champions covers all companies listed on exchanges in the United States. In order to be included in the list, the annual split-adjusted dividend payout of a company (based on calendar year) must be consistently increasing. The Dividend Champions list is separated into three categories based on how long companies have maintained the streak of annually increasing dividends: Champions (25 or more years), Contenders (10 to 24 years), and Challengers (5 to 9 years). The Dividend Champions list was created by David Fish in 2007 and is currently maintained by Justin Law. The Dividend Champions list may be obtained for free for personal, non-commercial use from the DRIP Investing Resource Center. Data in the Dividend Champions list is provided "as is" with no guarantees of accuracy, completeness, or timeliness.

Justin, thanks for your wonderful work. Could you think about the same list for European companies ?
Justin, thanks for your work. When I opened the PDF for 05/29/2020 data, the date on the PDF read A/O 4/30/2020. Is that an error or is that still the April data?
Thx again.
I mentioned earlier $TR paid their annual 3% stock dividend in March. Record date 03/03/20.

I love reading your articles but I am wondering if you could do an article on Bonds & Bond Funds? I am in my 70's and retired and want to move some of my stocks into Bonds but don't have a clue. I need income but want to diversify my all stock portfolio. Any help would be appreciated.
High Yield Landlord on this site is worth your reading and consideration as he offers retirement portfolio recommendations in REITs.
I started with Mr. Fish in 2009 and I am grateful for you continuing the research he established some time ago. Thank you!

Note to self and others: Sonoco Products (SON) didn't increase dividend this time and is paying same dividend for 5th consecutive quarters. Sure they can increase it later on but as a red flag for myself. SON has a streak of 37 years.
Thanks, Mr. Law.
This is greatly appreciated.
Thanks Justin.
Great information provided...

Thanks Justin!
Justin, you have my greatest respect. Thank you for all of your work.
Well, well...Nice running into you....been awhile..

"Carolina Financial Corp (CARO) has been acquired by United Bankshares (UBSI)."

What's interesting is that CARO bought CART and during the routine
time to get the deal done United Bankshares bought CARO....

Take care !
It seems to me that UBSI has an appetite. Here in northern Virginia they have recently gobbled up three of their rivals.
