Thanks!Too bad they left Payout Ratio off the chart. Without that the whole thing is pretty useless to me.
RH...You might want to look at the Dividend Champions spreadsheet (or PDF), located here...http://dripinvesting.org/Tools/Tools.asp(Note that there are tabs at the bottom for the Champions (25+ years), the Contenders (10-24 years), and the Challengers (5-9 years)...in all, over 400 companies.)
I should have mentioned that if you scroll to the right in the Champions spreadsheet, you'll see Funadmental date, including payout ratio, P/E, etc.
David, No one can best your work.
Max,Thanks...I try my best!d.
How long has the company been paying the dividend?What % of earnings do these divideds represent?What % of operational free cash flow do these dividends represent?What has the dividend growth rate per year been over the past 10 years? 20 years?Has the growth rate been trending upward? Downward? Constant? Fluctuating?This is some of what a true dividend investor needs to know.And when I read "...dividends while you are waiting..." I always wonder...waiting for what? Is there some bell that will go off when its time to abandon dividend paying stocks for the next hot asset class?A Mr. dfish (sorry, I don't know his name) provides one of the best quarterly comilation of dividend paying stocks I've found.BruceM
A Mr. dfish (sorry, I don't know his name) provides one of the best quarterly comilation of dividend paying stocks I've found.BruceM Absolutely. If you don't like the list that I posted, then ignore it. And no one was suggesting that the list included everything you need to know. Heck, I even consider dfish's excellent list a starting point for my research.
MadIt's not that the list you found and shared isnn't potentially useful, it could be a good starting point. But the updated quarterly 'Dividend Champions' is a tough act to follow :-)BruceM
