Updated Canadian Dividend All-Star List: June 30, 2013

Siem Reap Cambodia

For the past week I’ve been in Cambodia checking out the temples in Siem Reap. As you can see from the picture above, it has been a great adventure. I’ll be heading over to Thailand shortly, but happy Canada Day weekend to all the folks back home. I’ve been traveling since October 2012 and it has been a great experience, but it will be nice to come home in late July. Now onto dividends and such…

I’ve updated the Canadian Dividend All-Star List for the month. You can download the latest version here.

There are few updates this month.

  • A reader pointed out that I was missing Transcontinental Inc. I added Transcontinental Inc to the list as it has a dividend streak of 11 years.
  • A reader pointed out that I was missing Royal Gold Inc. I added Royal Gold Inc to the list as it also has a dividend streak of 11 years. Royal Gold is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, but dividends are paid out in US dollars.

    Before I start the dividend stock analysis I want to mention to new readers that there is another article that you may want to read first. The other article better explains what I’m looking for in a company from a dividend growth perspective and why I analyze specific company components and ratios. The other article is meant more as an educational tool so that readers can better understand my dividend stock analyses. This dividend stock analysis will look at the company to identify if it is a good dividend growth candidate to invest in.

    TELUS Dividend Stock Analysis

    Canadian Telecom stocks have been dropping in price ever since Verizon Communications announced that they plan to buy WIND Mobile. Rogers Communications and TELUS have been hit the hardest because a larger portion of their income is from wireless communications, which Verizon would compete for. With this recent drop, Rogers Communications is close to my target price, so I thought it would be a good time to review TELUS.

    The Canadian Communications Industry is made up of only a few key players. Today I’ll be looking into Shaw Communications and seeing how its future expected dividend growth compares to some of its competitors, namely Telus, Rogers Communications and BCE.

    Dividends

    A quick look at the Canadian Dividend All-Star List tells me that Shaw Communications has increased their dividend for 10 consecutive calendar years in a row. For a Canadian company this is an impressive streak. Telus has a streak of 9 years, Rogers Communications has a streak of 8 years, and BCE has a streak of 4 years. All of these companies have increased their dividend within the last year so when the year is over I expect them to move up one year on the list. For Shaw Communications this would make 11 consecutive years of increasing dividends.

    Dividends have been steadily increasing over the years which are good signs, but it looks like the significant dividend growth occurred
