Ah, I see. My screen requires positive dividend growth over the past five years, and it says SCCO has grown its dividends per share by 52.4% over that period. Capital IQ takes the trailing-12-month period and compares it to the same 12-month period five years ago. When I look at this page:http://dividata.com/stock/SCCO/dividend...and try to perform that calculation, I get a 5-year increase of 43%. At any rate, I don't know what the discrepancy with CAPS is.I will say, however, that of all the companies passing that screen, the market is telling us that SCCO is the least likely to sustain its dividends -- the 9.7% yield is telling. My screen indicates it may be safer than the market is expecting, but neither my screen nor the market is foolproof. Short answer: There's more risk involved with SCCO than the other companies passing the screen.
