Dividend Investing

One of the topics of this blog is dividend investing.

My motto is: If a stock does not pay, then I do not play.

Here are some dividend investing blogs that I look at:

Defunct sites:

Other dividend websites:

 

I have a few posts looking at some dividend indices:

 

Following the style of David Fish (creator of the Dividend Champions spreadsheet), I refer to the first month of a quarter (January, April, July and October) as the “A” months, the second month of a quarter (February, May, August and November) as the “B” months, and the third month of a quarter (March, June, September and December) as the “C” months.

The Dividend Champion list divides companies into three categories depending on how long they have been raising their dividends: Champions (25 or more years), Contenders (10 to 24 years), and Challengers (5 to 9 years). Even if you using just ETFs (as I am), it is still a good idea to look at this list once in a while because it will tell you how many companies are raising dividends, and in my opinion give you a tool to gauge the health of the economy. Here is a table for the breakdown of CCC companies for January of each year (since that just seems to make more sense):

Year Total Champions Contenders Challengers
2021 729 139 308 282
2020 866 138 265 463
2019 864 131 205 528
2018 822 115 220 487
2017 768 108 227 433
2016 753 107 250 396
2015 611 106 246 259
2014 476 105 210 161
2013 458 105 183 170
2012 448 102 146 200
2011 447 99 141 207
