The List of Dividend Challengers in 2022

This article provides an updated list of the Dividend Challengers in 2022, select financial data, and analysis. The list and data are updated monthly.

The Dividend Challengers 2022 are stocks that have grown their dividend for 5 to 9 consecutive years. The list is a relatively select one despite taking only five years of dividend growth to get on the list. There are only 242 companies on the Dividend Challengers 2022 list as of November 23, 2022. The total number is out of the nearly 6,000 companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and Nasdaq in 2022. This number implies a success rate of roughly 4.03%.

It is significantly more difficult for a company to become a Dividend King, Dividend Aristocrat, or Dividend Champion. However, the success rate to become a Dividend Challenger is on par with the Dividend Contenders.

Note that the number of companies on the Dividend Challengers list is down quite a bit from 463 at the beginning of 2020 due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on many companies. The number of dividend cuts and suspensions resulting from COVID-19 has been high on the Dividend Challengers list. In addition

Before we discuss the Dividend Challengers, individual investors should be aware there are micro-cap companies on the Dividend Challengers 2022 list. Micro-cap companies have added risk compared to larger companies due to fewer shares and lower liquidity. Micro-caps also tend to be newer companies without long track records. As a result, micro-cap companies are not suited to most investors interested in dividend growth investing.

The Dividend Challengers 2022 list also includes very large companies such as Eli Lilly (LLY), Thermo Fisher Scientific (TMO), Danaher (DHR), Intel (INTC), and JP Morgan Chase (JPM). Hence, the list sometimes includes established companies that only recently started paying dividends or had an interruption in their dividend growth streak. For instance, many banks cut or omitted their dividend during the sub-prime mortgage crisis.

Some of the Dividend Challengers 2022 will become Dividend Contenders and eventually Dividend Champions, and a few will become Dividend Kings. Although, many will also drop off the list when the economy slows down or due to a merger. This point was apparent during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many stocks on the Dividend Challengers 2021 were promoted to the Dividend Contenders list. These stocks hit the 10-year mark for consecutive annual increases. However, we will not list all the stocks here, but you can check the Dividend Contenders 2022 list and see which stocks have ten consecutive annual years of dividend increases.

Additions and Deletions to the Dividend Challengers 2022

There were many additions at the bottom of the Dividend Challengers 2021 list. We will not list all the stocks here, but you can scroll down and look at some of the newer stocks on the list with 5-years of consecutive dividend growth.

Some stocks are dropped from the list every year after failing to increase the dividend. In many cases, these stocks run into operational challenges. In some cases, the economy slows down or experiences a recession. When companies decline revenue or earnings, the dividend is often frozen or cut.

Some Details on the Dividend Challengers 2021

Dividend Challengers Sector Breakdown

Companies from the Financial Sector have the most significant representation on the Dividend Contenders 2022 list with 102 companies. This sector is followed by Industrials with 34 companies, Real Estate with 28 companies, and Technology with 28 companies. The top two sectors did not change in the past few years. The Consumer Cyclical sector had many companies that suspended or cut their dividends and thus have trended lower.

Dividend Challenger Sector Analysis

Financials tend to have stable and generally rising earnings over time, except for recessions. Many financial companies cut, froze, or suspended dividends during the Great Recession. But many also restarted dividend growth a few years later. Like the Dividend Contenders list, regional banks are the number one industry on the Dividend Challengers list.

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. 

Real Estate companies on the list tend to be REITs. Commercial real estate REITs have not done well during the COVID-19 pandemic, but others have held up better. For instance, industrial, specialty, and residential REITs have done well.

Information Technology is one sector that has thrived during the pandemic. The move to online, digital, and work or learn at home trends have accelerated, and some of this is likely to stay with us. The relative outperformance of Information Technology has allowed many of the companies to pay an increasing dividend.

Dividend Challenger Industry Analysis

Market Size of the Dividend Challengers 2022

The largest of the Dividend Challengers 2021 by market capitalization used to be Apple (APPL). However, Apple was promoted to the Dividend Contenders 2022 list.

The largest Dividend Challenger is Bank of America (BAC), with more than $330 billion market capitalization.

Besides Apple, the list is not dominated by large-cap companies but includes many mid-cap companies ($2 billion – $10 billion), small-cap companies ($300 million – $2 billion), and even micro-cap companies. Micro-cap companies have a market size of less than $100 million and are often traded on the over-the-counter (OTC) market. Therefore, investors should be wary when investing in companies with small market capitalization due to the associated risks.

What I Like About the Dividend Challengers 2021?

The Dividend Challengers 2022 list serves as a screen for further investigating a stock for a dividend growth portfolio. But not all the Dividend Challengers are suitable for most investors since they have not raised the dividend for an extended period. 

In general, dividend growth investors should prefer stocks that have raised their dividend for at least 10-years or more. There are some exceptions, though. For instance, several mega-cap and large-cap stocks are on the list and can make suitable investments.
