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.
