What are we looking for?

High, sustainable and rising dividends among Canadian companies.

The screen

We have screened our Canadian universe of stocks with the following criteria:

  • A minimum market cap of $400-million;
  • A return on capital of 10 per cent or higher;
  • A debt/equity ratio of one or lower;
  • Positive free-cash-flow-to-capital ratio. This ratio gives a sense of how well the company uses the invested capital to generate free cash flow, which could be used to stimulate growth, pay and/or increase dividends, reduce debt, etc. A positive figure is good – 5 per cent and above is excellent;
  • A dividend payout of 100 per cent or lower;
  • A dividend yield of 3 per cent or higher;
  • A positive dividend growth rate on the one-, two-, three- and four-year horizons;
  • An increase in earnings per share over past 12 months (not shown in table).

Results in the accompanying table are sorted by dividend yield.
