Thank you to all who replied about Justin's fabulous CCC preparation. I did, in fact sign up at Wide Moat, 4 times. David Goldschmitt in WM support said I was signed up, and he sent me a sample. Looks nothing like the CCC to which I am accustomed. At the moment, it appears that I won't be able to achieve the goal, even as a premium member.

@Eva C Be sure you use www.ireitinvestor.com/... to access the list. Log in [same as wide moat] and you can download spreadsheet or pdf.

Did I miss anything? Iron Mountain could rise in the last quarter and would be still Contender!

Could you include the payout ratio in your charts? Thanks!

I also signed up for the newsletter, but didn't receive a copy of the CCC:
"Thanks for signing up to receive the Dividend Champions List! I hope you'll find it to be an extremely powerful and valuable tool to help you in your investment journey. You'll shortly be receiving a copy of the Dividend Champions List in a separate email.

@ced1106 Got the newsletter! With all those red marks I find useful to screen out stocks with. Thanks! (:

As a friendly suggestion, please compute the "Dividend Currency" and "Tax" summaries ... those two summaries help me better understand the data you provide.

The summary for this month's Dividend Currency is:
3 CAD, 1 CHF, 2 EUR, 1 JPY, 733 USD

I computed the Dividend Currency summary by adding the following to column BH:

on line 754 (after the actual data region) enter CAD
on line 755 enter =COUNTIF(BH$7:BH$746,"="&BH754)
on line 756 enter CHF
on line 757 enter =COUNTIF(BH$7:BH$746,"="&BH756)
on line 758 enter EUR
on line 759 enter =COUNTIF(BH$7:BH$746,"="&BH758)
on line 760 enter JPY
on line 761 enter =COUNTIF(BH$7:BH$746,"="&BH760)
on line 762 enter USD
on line 763 enter =COUNTIF(BH$7:BH$746,"="&BH762)
on line 765 enter =BH755+BH757+BH759+BH761+BH763
(for the 30 Sep data, cell BH765 should total to 740 and match the value in cell B748)

The summary for this month's Tax is:
1 BDC, 677 Corp, 12 LP, 50 REIT

I computed the Tax summary by adding the following to column BI:

on line 754 enter BDC
on line 755 enter =COUNTIF(BI$7:BI$746,"="&BI754)
on line 756 enter Corp
on line 757 enter =COUNTIF(BI$7:BI$746,"="&BI756)
on line 758 enter LP
on line 759 enter =COUNTIF(BI$7:BI$746,"="&BI758)
on line 760 enter REIT
on line 761 enter =COUNTIF(BI$7:BI$746,"="&BI760)
on line 765 enter =BI755+BI757+BI759+BI761+BI763
(for the 30 Sep data, cell BI765 should total to 740 and match the value in cell B748)

As always, thank you for maintaining the spreadsheet ... I'm glad you're doing it, 'cause it's not a job I want ;-)

Best wishes,

I own shares an ExxonMobil AT&t and Philip Morris. I wonder when this bubble is going to pop
jbourvic profile picture
@jimmyolsenblues AT&T already popped. They were dropped at the split and Justin just said they were dropped this month for freezing dividends. PM and MO have high percentage yields which may burst in the future, but smoking is still popular at this time.

ExxonMobil won't be dying away soon.
Thank you!
I can't get signed up for some reason. Tried 3 times.

Thank you for update but it would be nice if the file appears here in SA as well as in www.dripinvesting.org/... as it was in David Fish time. I understand that you want to promote widemoatresearch.com (and subscribed to it) but when SA community trusted you to continue CCC list the commitment was to keep the file free without any subscription. Please keep promises and traditions

Thank you

@Justin Law ,

Thanks for another timely report.
Eva C profile picture
Justin, If there is a link to the CCC spreadsheet, I am not able to find it. Thanks in advance (as always) for your assistance. (Wide Moat did not have a link; I did look there.) Thank you again, Eva
@Eva C www.dripinvesting.org/... Can find it from there. =)

@Eva C the list on the dripinvesting site is an old one. I suggest you access and download the list from the originating source via:

@Eva C You have to sign in on Wide Moat Research and you will see a link which takes you to the same article as printed here except it has two links at the bottom that allow you to see the list. Good Luck
