Dividend payment timing:

The number in parentheses is the number of non-special dividends declared/paid during that period.
How do I determine the "bumpiness" of a company?
Mathematically, I use the standard deviation around the arithmetic mean of the dividend raise percentages.
I have devised a "bumpiness metric" which will tell at a glance how smooth or bumpy a company's dividend history has been.
For you math geeks, the bumpiness is the standard deviation rounded to the nearest integer.
The result is a whole number that tells you whether a company's dividend history has been smooth or teeth-rattling.
|Year||Dividends paid||Increase from previous year||Compound annual growth rate to 2019 from||Bumpiness to 2019 from||Mean to 2019 from||Standard deviation to 2019 from|
|2015||$ 0.40000 (2)||The dividend for 2019 was zero||There is no useful bumpiness for this year||0.000%||0.000|
|2016||$ 0.00000 (0)||-100.000%||The dividend for this year was zero||There is no useful bumpiness for this year||0.000%||0.000|
|2017||$ 0.00000 (0)||NO CHANGE||The dividend for this year was zero||There is no useful bumpiness for this year||0.000%||0.000|
|2018||$ 0.00000 (0)||NO CHANGE||The dividend for this year was zero||There is no useful bumpiness for this year||0.000%||0.000|
|2019||$ 0.00000 (0)||NO CHANGE|
