How do we make our predictions?

Our estimates are based on:

  1. Each company’s stated dividend policy
  2. Market announcements
  3. Patterns in payment history
  4. Trading environment (geopolitical influences)
  5. Our analysts expertise in various industries and regions
  6. Changes to issued share capital
  7. Market analyst’s sentiment

What do we predict?

We estimate dividends up to two years ahead, predicting the timing and amount of each individual dividend.
This means predicting:

for our global database of over 1,250 stocks.

As the dividend’s declaration date approaches we may revise each estimate to factor in changes in market sentiment, news and announcements.

Why is this important?

By collecting a huge database of future dividends we can better identify good yielding stocks and therefore good investment opportunities.

Additionally we have built three tools on top of all this information which helps our customers grow their investment portfolios and predict their income.
