Do you better buy the dividend stock with a higher initial dividend or with higher dividend growth? Fans of dividend income ask themselves this question again and again when searching for the right dividend stocks. From now on, the Dividend Benchmark will help to you answer this question.
The Dividend Benchmark forecasts the dividend growth of a dividend stock over the next 20 years in a chart. In addition, up to 5 additional dividend stocks can be added as a benchmark. For instance, you can see in which year a stock with high dividend growth will pay more dividends than a stock with a higher initial dividend but lower dividend growth. Depending on your dividend strategy and investment horizon, this will be an argument for or against a dividend stock.
The picture below reveals that Unilever has the highest dividend growth and, as a result, is expected to have a higher dividend yield than any other stock from 2028 onwards.
Details about the calculation of the dividend forecast can be found in the documentation.
