Inflation Beaters Index Updated

Back to list of posts


Last weekend in a blog post I unveiled the Inflation Beaters Index that is a compilation of companies who have grown their annual dividends for 25 or more consecutive years and their annual dividend increases exceed the inflation rate for each year. Today I am posting an update to the list that now includes inflation beating contenders who have exceeded the annual inflation rate for more than 10 consecutive years.

The data is not 100% complete as I still have to research stocks that exceeded 18 years (currently listed as 18+ in the file). For these companies I have to download the dividend history for each company and then manually adjust for all stock splits. It is a tedious process so they will be a bit longer to get updated but I felt the list complete enough for myself or others to use.

Hers is a quick metric summary of the components of contenders list:
