Definition

Common stock dividends growth of a company. Rising dividend growth is reacted favorably, since it implies the company is in good financial position to pay its shareholders dividends.

Formula

Growth of Dividends TTM since the last quarter.

This number represents the growth percentage between two quarters of our Dividends (TTM) calculation. For instance, if a company has 9 dollars of dividends paid in the last trailing twelve months (TTM) in March 30th 2013 and a 11 dollars of dividends paid TTM in June 30th 2013, the dividend growth would be (11/9)-1 = .222 which would be represented as 22%.

Date - Common dividends paid in that period
March 30th 2012 - 1 dollar
June 30th 2012 - 2 dollars
September 30th 2012 - 2 dollars
December 31st 2012 - 3 dollars
March 30th 2013 - 2 dollars (The last TTM of dividends at this point is 9 dollars)
June 30th 2013 - 4 dollars (The last TTM of dividends at this point is 11 dollars).
