We think it’s time to pay attention to dividend growers.
When it comes to long-term performance, companies that have consistently increased dividends year-over-year have been effective, as the chart below demonstrates. Indeed, there is a case to be made for dividend growers.
Dividend growers have historically outperformed
* A divided yield is a financial ratio that indicates how much a company pays out in dividends each year relative to its share price. Dividend yield is represented as a percentage and can be calculated by dividing the dollar value of dividends paid in a given year per share of stock held by the dollar value of one share of stock.
** Earning stability measures the variability or consistency of a company’s net income. It is the predictability of an earnings pattern as measured over a ten-year period using net income and standard deviation.
