Dividend History Index
The Dividend History Index calculates the split adjusted yearly dividends paid out by selected stocks. Also included in the
Dividend History Index is the percent change in the dividend payout for each year (based on split adjusted dividend). We at businesspage feel that it is often more useful to see what the dividend increase or decrease was in percentage terms versus the actual amount in terms
of dollars and cents. We also realize that there are a lot of other sources of dividend information out there so we have tried to include a few dividend facts not included on other dividend sites. In the Dividend
History Index we have included the average dividend increase (in percentage terms) for all dividend data for each stock as well as the average dividend increase since 2000 for each stock. Also included in the index is the
number of consecutive years a company has increased its dividend along with the number of years a stock's dividend has been increased, decreased, or remained the same. Finally, there is a reference to the year each stock had its biggest dividend
increase and its biggest dividend decrease. We hope everyone enjoys the information in the Dividend History Index; thanks for visiting businesspage.
The Dividend History Index is intended for informational purposes only and should not be used as the basis of any
investment decision. All dividends in the index have been adjusted for stock splits (if applicable) to create a more linear history and to more easily calculate yearly dividend changes. The Dividend History Index values have
been calculated by businesspage and while these values are believed to be accurate, errors are possible. Any information contained in the Dividend History Index is property of businesspage. Information in the index can be
used for personal use, but it can not be redistributed in any manner (part or in whole), without the written consent of businesspage.
The Dividend History Index is a work in progress, we plan to add more stocks, so if
you don't see the stock you are looking for, keep checking for new updates.
