Dividend Growth: Standing The Test Of Time

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, July 30, 2014 | | 0 comments »

With 2013 being another record-setting year for dividend growth in the S&P 500, having access to isolated corporate fundamentals has become an even more prominent issue for retail investors. According to S&P 500 data compiled by Howard Silverblatt of S&P Dow Jones Indices (from his January 6, 2014, email titled Q4 2013 dividends: a very rewarding quarter & year, with 2014 expected to continue up), 2013 actual dividend payments were up 11.99% over 2012. In addition, the 2013 regular cash dividend payments of $311.8 billion easily surpassed the previous record of $281.5 billion, set in 2012.

In order to understand the historical consistency and dependability of dividend growth in the S&P 500, we analyzed and aggregated Bloomberg data for both dividend and price returns over the last 41 years (through 2013). For the purposes of our analysis, monthly returns are totaled (and not compounded) to arrive at the annual return figures.
