Periodic Table of the Dividend Champions

Posted by D4L | Tuesday, December 28, 2010 | | 0 comments »

The Dividend Champions are 98 stocks that have increased their dividend payout for 25 consecutive years or more. Actually, including Challengers and Contenders, the full document now includes stocks all the way down to those with 5-year streaks. This is a fabulous research tool for dividend-growth investors. Today’s idea is to create a “periodic table” of the Champions. The idea of this Periodic Table of Dividend Champions is to organize the Dividend Champions by their current yields and 5-year dividend growth rates.

In dividend-growth investing, one necessity is to select the right stocks to fit the strategy. For example, one might decide that s/he is not interested in stocks with a yield of 2% or less, or in stocks that haven’t managed to grow their dividend by more than 5% per year over the last 5 years. I have shaded those portions of the table. Remarkably, those two simple requirements eliminate more than half the stocks from consideration. Of course, they also eliminate Sherwin-Williams, Target, Walgreens, and Lowes, stocks that many would argue are just great for a dividend-growth portfolio.
