Email of the day on S&P Dividend Aristocrat Index constituent tables

I miss the Dividend Aristocrat tables that used to be under Subscribers' Forum. I hope you can post (and update?) them.

Eoin Treacy's view

Thank you for this question. We have not repopulated the Forum in the new site because it received so little use in the old site and because subscribers are now using the tags and comments section are an alternative. 

It’s been a while since I reviewed the constituents of the various Dividend Aristocrat indices so I will devote a day to each next week. The last time I reviewed the respective indices together was June 21st 2013 and here are the various tables from 2013 and the most recent data so you can compare and contrast.   

The S&P500 Dividend Aristocrats Index requires 25 consecutive years of dividend increases so the members don’t tend to change all that often. The present constituents are reasonably similar to the March 7th 2013 list 

The S&P Europe 350 Dividend Aristocrats Index requires 10 consecutive years of dividend increase so there is a higher turnover of constituents. Additionally, the Index is heavily dominated by UK listed shares. Here are links to the March 8th 2013 and present constituents

The S&P Pan Asia Dividend Aristocrats Index requires 7 consecutive years of dividend increase. Between March 2013 and now the number of Australian constituents has decreased while the relative weighting of Hong Kong listed and Japanese  shares has increased. 

The S&P/TSX Dividend Aristocrats Index requires 5 consecutive years of dividend increases . Here is the most recent data
