Our Safety Score, Growth Score, and Yield Score were designed to help answer three critical questions faced by all dividend investors:
Is the current dividend payment safe?
Is the dividend likely to grow?
Is the dividend yield relatively cheap?
Each score represents a stock’s percentile rank for that category. In other words, a score of 3 means the stock scored in the bottom 3% of all dividend stocks for that metric. A score of 94 means the stock is ranked higher than 94% of all dividend stocks for that metric. A score of 50 is right in the middle – half of the other dividend stocks scored higher than that stock, and half scored below that stock.
Scores of 100 are most desirable across each category. However, a score of 50 should not be interpreted as “bad.” It just means that the stock scored in the middle of the pack (or average) for that category.
Our Safety Score and Growth Score analyze over 20 fundamental metrics, covering both near-term and long-term trends going back 10+ years. From credit metrics to free cash flow generation, we assess the most meaningful factors that influence a company’s ability to continue paying and growing its dividend. See the full list of factors we analyze here.
Our Yield Score compares a stock’s dividend yield to the current yield of other 2,700+ dividend stocks in our database. A Yield Score of 50 means that the stock’s dividend yield ranks right in the middle of all of the other dividend yields. The Yield Score provides a helpful and objective relative valuation metric.
