Re: Updated Dividend Champions

So far as I know, for a company to increase its dividends for at least 60 yrs is something new.

I think so, but on the down side, Diebold has gone "overdue" by not (yet) increasing its dividend this year, endangering its [more]

Re: Stocks vs Cash as dividend

Just where is the crossover from stock split to stock dividend?

I don't think there's a hard-and-fast rule about this and I've seen splits/stock dividends expressed both ways. For example:

A 2-for-1 split expressed as a 100% [more]

Re: Updated Dividend Champions

kelbon,
Thank you for bringing the inaccurate data to my attention. I intend to eliminate the P/FCF and FCF Payout ratio columns from the next update, which will take place on May 30.

Re: Updated Dividend Champions

Expect modest dividend increases from Exxon.
Actually XOM recently raised the dividend 9.52%, from 63¢ to 69¢ per share. The company has 1-, 3-, 5-, and 10-year Dividend Growth Rates (through 2013) of 12.8%, 12.2%, 9.7%, and [more]

Re: Updated Dividend Champions

Your examples do seem convincing, as does the logic. I'm also bothered by the lack of a P/FCF figure for many companies (leading to an "n/a" filler in the spreadsheet.

Re: Updated Dividend Champions

No offense, but what you say is "obviously off in many cases" may be obvious to you, but no so much to me. Taking a "meaningful" sample would, indeed, be time consuming, so I'm not sure how you can say it's obvious (without doing [more]

Re: Updated Dividend Champions

Kelbon,
I agree that the "problem" is the difference in the FCF between FinViz and another source. Who's right is difficult to say as this seems to be similar to the variation between sources on EPS.

As far as using a different [more]

Re: Updated Dividend Champions

kelbon,
I think you are mistaking what is being calculated.
why the Free Cash Flow payout ratio, which is pertinent to the issue, isn’t expressed in a meaningful and simple way, as the EPS payout ratio is?

Re: Updated Dividend Champions

The numbers rely on the Price/FCF taken from FinViz.com, which is multiplied by the yield (Div/Price) to get Div/FCF...and expressed as whole-number percentages (as is the yield).

I believe the formula is [more]
