Dividend Contenders

The Dividend Contenders 2021 are stocks that that have grown their dividend for 10 to 24 consecutive years. Although this does not seem difficult it is a relatively small list of only 311 companies as of December 17, 2021. This is out of nearly 6,000 companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges (NASDAQ and NYSE) at end of 2020. So getting on to the Dividend Contenders 2021 list is no a small feat. These companies may not have grown revenue and earnings per share every year, but they annually raised the dividend without fail.

Some of the Dividend Contenders 2021 will become Dividend Champions and a few will become Dividend Kings. But some companies will also drop off the Dividend Contenders 2021 list since they cannot sustain the dividend during time of economic distress, e.g. COVID-19 pandemic or the Great Recession.

If you are interested in investing in stocks that pay dividends I recommend signing up for the Sure Dividend Newsletter*. It is a reasonably priced and one of the best dividend newsletters available. There is a 7-day free trial and grace period so it is risk free. The service provides top 10 stock picks with discussion of advantages, valuation, and risks. I highly recommend them and use their insights for my own stock research. If you want to educate yourself more about investing and dividends, then I suggest taking a course. The Simply Investing Course* is a good value and fairly comprehensive.

Some Details on the Dividend Contenders 2021

Dividend Contenders Sector Breakdown

Companies from the Financial Sector have the greatest representation on the Dividend Contenders 2021 list with 116 companies. This is followed by Industrials with 45 companies, Utilities with 32 companies, and Materials with 23 companies. The top three did not change this year or even last year. But the Materials sector moved into the No. 4 spot last year since the Consumer Discretionary sector had many companies that suspended or cut their dividends.

Financials tend to have stable and generally rising earnings over time with the exception of recessions. Many financial companies cut, froze, or suspended the dividend during the Great Recession. But many also restarted dividend growth as soon as the recovery began and thus, they are now at about 10 years of consecutive dividend increases. Industrial companies tend to have somewhat more volatile earnings and cash flows, but many have low payout ratios letting them grow the dividends during recessions and economic downturns. The same generality applies to companies in the consumer discretionary sector. On the other hand, Utilities tend to have stable and regular cash flow and earnings over long periods of time.

Market Size of the Dividend Contenders 2021

The list is not dominated by large cap companies but includes quite a few mid-cap companies ($2 billion – $10 billion) and small cap companies ($300 million – $2 billion). The largest of the Dividend Contenders 2021 by market capitalization is Microsoft Corporation (MSFT), the software behemoth, which has raised the dividend for 19 straight years. Microsoft will likely become a Dividend Aristocrat and Dividend Champion. There are a few companies on the Dividend Contenders 2021 list with market capitalizations less than $100M including Haverty Furniture Companies (HVT-A), Donegal Group (DGICB), and Acme United Corp (ACU). Investors should wary when investing in companies with such small market capitalization due to the associated risks.

What I Like About The Dividend Contenders 2021?

The Dividend Contenders 2021 list serves as a screen for further investigating a stock for a dividend growth portfolio. The Dividend Contenders 2021 are companies with stable businesses that have competitive advantages and have returned cash to shareholders consistently through dividends and in some cases buybacks. Many of these companies are not yet mature and still on decent growth trajectories leading to dividend growth and stock price appreciation.

The Dividend Contenders 2021 List is not as exclusive as the Dividend Kings 2021 or Dividend Champions 2021 lists. But still, ~313 out of about 6,000 companies is roughly 5.2%.

The Dividend Contenders 2021 list changes relatively slowly as only a few companies graduate each year to the Dividend Champions list. However, a decent number of companies do hit the 10-year mark adding to the list from the Dividend Challengers list.
