Dividend Data

OnTheFly56 2 months ago in Website updated 2 months ago 4

Be careful with the dividend data.  This AM I was reading a Brad Thomas article about CFR.  I noticed on the SA dividend pages for CFR that that SA says that CFR has grown it's dividend for 21 years.  This conflicts with another trusted dividend "safety" site and the Champions spreadsheet.  I only point this out because SA is relatively new to publishing the dividend info and perhaps there are some bugs to work out.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback. We're investigating the issue.
One question: are you suggesting the div. growth is more than 21 years or less?

Kushal,

SA lists the dividend growth as 21 years.  According to Simply Safe Dividends, it is 26 years.  According to the Drip Investing Resource Center Dividend Champions Spreadsheet, it is also 26 years, not 21.

I want SA to be my only paid service.  I am truly hoping you get the portfolio upload feature fixed for Fidelity.  But I also need to trust SA data.

Excellent.  Any word yet on being able to sync Fidelity?  Every time I tried last week it gave me error messages.
