No. of Recommendations: 1 most people here use the DGR figures from David Fish's CCC list (along with the projected 5 year dividend growth model he provides)? This is what I'm doing and it's very helpful, but I'm wondering if I should be doing more due diligence (David Fish just makes it too easy, not that I'm complaining :)

Hi again psamtani!

David Fish's data base IS awesome...but on rare occasions, even he can make a mistake, so, typically, I will check other sources for the 1-3-5 year dividend growth data. Most financial sources have this data ( some more accurate than others, especially when dealing in ADR's of foreign companies with uneven dividends, etc ), plus most online brokerages have research/screening data bases that feature these numbers.

Trust, but verify! ;-)
