Our criteria to find Top Dividend Companies

High Yield

  • Companies with a high dividend yield are more attractive due to the higher expected income for each dollar invested.
  • Yields vary between markets, so we focus on the top dividend payers in each market.

What do we look for?

  • Is the yield in the top 25% of the market's dividend payers.

Consistent Dividends

  • Companies with a strong track record of paying a consistent and growing dividend are the most attractive.
  • If the dividend has been cut substantially in the past, then it's difficult to be confident about future payments.

What do we look for?

  • Has the dividend been stable over the last 10 years.
  • Has the dividend grown over the last 10 years.

Dividend Cover

  • Ideally the company doesn't pay out all of its earnings, neglecting future growth.
  • If a company is unable to afford its dividend, then it will probably lead to a dividend cut and share price erosion.

What do we look for?

  • Are dividends covered by earnings.
  • Are dividends forecast to be covered by earnings in the future.

Healthy Balance Sheet

  • Investors want to make sure the company is positioned to cover its debts. Repayments on debt typically take priority over shareholder return initiatives.

What do we look for?

  • Does the company have a manageable level of debt.
  • Is the company able to cover its interest repayments.
