In the April Challenger's list, you have MFC with a closing price of $21.85 (NYSE) but with a Current Dividend of $0.33 for an annual payout of $1.32. But isn't that $0.33 the CAD Dividend? Which is why the Yield is showing 6%?

Thanks for managing the list for us.

I really wish you'd stop mentioning David Fish in your articles to market something. I just signed up on Wide Moat Research to get the latest copy of the CCC list. What I got instead was a link to a copy dated 9/1/21, over 6 months ago.

David Fish was an honest and generous gentleman who freely and publicly offered the CCC list to the dividend growth community on a monthly basis. What I got instead appears to be a teaser so that I can be put on your marketing list. In other words, another financial shill hoping to sell me something. No thanks!

If I'm wrong, I'd certainly be more amenable to a more recent version with updated statistics.

@Dividend Watcher I'll ask our support team to look into this. That certainly isn't what is supposed to happen. But, if you've signed up, you should be able to access everything including the most recent version through the Wide Moat site.

@Dividend Watcher
I, too, am getting a bit annoyed at what has become of the CCC list since associating with Wide Moat; every time I go to pull up the list I have to re-register (presumably to put me on another mailing list) or the list isn't t there or some other thing. Chasing stocks is one thing; chasing tools is another.
