Dividend Achievers Screen 20 Qualifying in UK

This is a screen for companies that have paid increasing regular cash dividends for five or more consecutive years. It is inspired by the index run by Indxis, the Index Services unit of US player, Mergent. In addition to stipulating five or more years of increasing dividends, a stock must meet specific liquidity screening criteria. Furthermore, they must be companies with strong cash reserves, a solid balance sheet and a proven record of consistent earnings growth.  You can read more here.

Dividend Achievers

Mergent pioneered the US Dividend Achievers Index which is now tracked by $7bn worth of funds managed by BlackRock, Invesco PowerShares and Vanguard. The UK equivalent was launched in 2010. Back tested over 5 years, the UK equivalent apparently outperformed the wider UK index by nearly a percentage point every year. In the 12 months to January 2011, it saw a 20.8% increase, out-performing its MSC benchmark by almost 3%.

This screen is based on a UK dataset. It uses the following criteria:

  • Div Gwth Streak > 4
  • EPS 5y CAGR % > 10
  • Debt To Assets < Median
  • Current Ratio > 1.5
  • 10d Avg Vol > 0.3
